The Video App Revolutionising Recruitment


Bristol-based startup ‘Sixty Seconds’ has released a revolutionary new service allowing recruiters to create professional, company-branded video job adverts simply by completing a form.

The simple videos which provide an animated clip of job role, location and salary have been proven to dramatically increase engagement and applications, fundamentally reducing cost per hire by up to 56%.

Already having secured deals with leading corporations such as Opus Talent Solutions and River Island, Sixty Seconds has big plans for 2018 and beyond. Founder, Andy Bryce says that the inspiration for Sixty Seconds came from working as a videographer in the recruitment sector and noticing a strong disconnect between the importance
of video on social media and the tools recruiters had available.

“We’d proven that simple animated videos had the ability to dramatically improve results for recruiters, but the cost of creating them one at a time was prohibitively expensive.” says Bryce.

“Working with a small team of developers, we built a cloud-based solution that uses automation to create high-end video job adverts on demand at a fraction of the price.”

Recruiters are set up with tailor-made templates designed to match their company brand guidelines. Any employee can then submit a simple form with job role and details. A fully edited, ready to use video job advert lands in their inbox ready to use within five minutes.

Videos can then be uploaded to social networks such as LinkedIn and Facebook alongside links to the job listing to dramatically increase reach and clickthrough.
