In this case you’ll still need to go through our pre-employment checks to get verified by our team. Once you are approved, you’ll be able to search, message and book Hireup users seeking support through the platform.
Interviewing for a job on Hireup
When you join Hireup we do a number of pre-employment checks to maintain the safety and security of our community but we won’t conduct a one-to-one interview with you. This is because we aren’t the ones receiving support so won’t know the exact qualities and experiences you will need to do the job well. We leave the interviewing up to people seeking support on Hireup. Once you have connected with someone new on Hireup, they may arrange a time to interview you, like for any other job. This is also known as a meet and greet Be prepared to answer questions about your skills and experiences but also about your interests. It’s important, as this process helps you get to know each other better.
Arranging a shift
Once you have found someone seeking support on Hireup to support, you’ll be able to message them through the platform to arrange the date, time and location of your shift. They’ll then make a booking with you, which you can confirm via your dashboard. We let users pass on their own contact details for privacy reasons so make sure to ask for what you will need on the day – generally a telephone number and address does the trick.
