Gestamp is an international group dedicated to the design, development and manufacture of metal automotive components. The Group specialises in developing innovatively designed products to achieve increasingly safer and lighter vehicles, thereby reducing energy consumption and environmental impact.
With 36,000 people and nearly 100 facilities around the world, bringing in the right people is always a priority.
Gestamp decided to implement the Shine Video Interviewing platform to conduct interviews in the UK and worldwide, recruiting for a wide variety of roles and the interviews are completed on a PC or through a mobile app at a time that suits the candidate. During the time we have worked with Shine, we have conducted hundreds of video interviews, and made many job offers to candidates who did well at the video interview stage. Our Hiring Managers in particular love the video interviewing concept as it saves them so much time. It’s also a great experience for the candidate as they don’t have to take time off work twice, travel twice, or incur expenses twice. It’s a great system all round that we have embraced with great enthusiasm.

Become an employer of choice
Anyone that has been involved with recruitment, within a manufacturing environment, will know just how much of a challenge it can be. Manufacturing recruiters are often struggling in the war for talent – not enough qualified candidates – too many roles.
Make your role the desirable one.
Often within manufacturing, it’s all about standing out as the employer of choice. Video interviewing helps with this through making your employer brand ‘shine’.
