The website works for both employers and candidates:
- Employers can use Genie’s video technology as a quick first interview screening programme. This allows you to see many candidates without lengthy interviews.
- Candidates can save money travelling to job interviews which tghey may not be right for. It will also save you time prepping for the first interview.
Genie combines the use of video technology and an active jobs board. We feel our prices are competitive for the type of service we are offering.
