VR Recruitment

VR Recruitment – Find Out What Your Candidates Are REALLY Like

Virtual recruitment is gradually gaining ground among progressive, innovative organizations, and the main reason is that candidates are becoming more relaxed and starting to reveal much more about themselves and how they work with others.

Our team of Cyber Psychologists and Business Psychologists can help your organization harness this phenomenon in virtual reality and significantly improve candidate selection and assessment processes in the virtual hiring process.

VR Recruitment is More Effective, Saves Time, Saves Costs and Opens up Talent Anywhere in the World

  • Meet candidates remotely in a completely natural and realistic way
  • See how candidates work with others even across continents
  • Innovative individual and group selection methods
  • Save travel and environmental costs
  • Safe remote selection allowing social distancing
  • See how candidates adapt to new technologies and use them

Incredibly Immersive, Stretching Group Activities That Draw Out Key Behaviours Important to Your Organisation

VR recruiting allows you to use scenarios and situations that are not possible in the real world, these fun and immersive VR adventures hide many opportunities to see how candidates interact with others, lead, solve problems, and many other key assessments of virtual hiring companies.

Due to their engaging nature candidates become completely immersed in the assessments and leak their real behavioural preferences.

Often in traditional face to face assessments, high EQ candidates can demonstrate the required behaviours for the short time they are assessed, with VR candidates become very disinhibited allowing potential employers a much truer picture of what they will be like in 6 month’s time once established in their role.

Our VR Team and Leadership Assessment Platform

We also have our own assessment platform that automatically analyzes the behavior of candidates during virtual online recruitment:

  • Objective assessment without human observers
  • Collects behavioural data on a range of important workplace related behaviours
  • Also can stretch or dynamically change the simulation to see how candidates respond
  • Rotates the leadership role automatically to ensure all candidates get the chance to demonstrate their skills or potential in this area
  • Allows comparison of candidates with norm groups across a range of behaviours

Easy, Convenient Remote VR Recruitment Using Our VR Hire Hubs Located Around The World

Having innovative VR recruitment services is one thing but we also need to be able to deliver them at scale. For this reason we have our own network of VR hire hubs around the world. This allows organisations wherever they are based to take advantage of the amazing opportunities that VR has when it comes to improving selection processes, making sure you find the right people for your culture and role.

Shipping is often next day, our orientations team will then get your candidates VR ready before your assessment days and also train your own team so you can also observe candidates yourselves in the VR space.


We wanted to do something really different and memorable for our graduate assessments and VRE worked with us to provide an assessment tool that would create the opportunity to see our graduate candidates operating in a much more ‘real’ environment than traditional graduate selection tools enable.

The virtual reality exercise allowed the assessors to see the candidate’s real behavioural preferences and having access to feedback from a Business Psychologist on the candidate’s performance was really helpful in allowing the manager’s to process their thoughts and add another feedback lens. Our candidates were really positive about the virtual reality experience and it was very much a talking point for all the candidates.

We believe it really helped enable us to stand out against other graduate assessment centres

Meet remote candidates in a more engaging environment with VR Interviews

VR Interviews offer a range of benefits over traditional interviews and with new VR and AR technology it brings a level of convenience and practicality even over traditional interviewing in some aspects.

  • Gain much greater insight into your candidates (over flat screen interviews) in a more natural VR environment where you can even walk up and shake hands with your candidates
  • Candidates can express themselves fully, stand up and walk around the room when presenting as in the real world
  • Additional functionality allowing candidates to present content, powerpoint, ideas in a virtual space that allows more creativity than the real world
  • Interview candidates in the same virtual room regardless of their location anywhere in the world
  • Save on travel and environmental costs when arranging interviews
  • See how candidates embrace and adapt to using this technology


  • For each of your candidates we send them a sterilised VR headset to their home address
  • We also send VR headsets to your recruitment team at the same time
  • We then schedule an orientation call with both groups to familiarise them with the headset and also the virtual interview software
  • On the day we work with your recruitment team and have staff facilitating in the VR space and also on site (if required)
  • After your interviews the candidates send the headsets back to us to be prepared for future rounds

Combine Virtual Interviews with other Virtual Assessments all with the same VR Headset

Interviews are an important part of the selection process, also important is the ability to see how well they work with others and their approach in doing so. We are able to arrange additional selection activities using the headset so that your VR Interviews can be combined with group activities or other assessments relevant to important job related competencies.

Once the headset is delivered to your candidates you can arrange your normal interview process and on the same day once they have completed their interviews we can progress to group activities.


VR interviews offer a number of advantages in the current world environment, but using new technology in an effective way can also demonstrate to candidates that your organisation is forward looking, innovative and open to new ideas and ways of working.

Offering candidates the chance to find out more about you through a virtual window straight into your organisation, is a very effective way to showcase your culture and adaptability as an organisation.
