Health Service Executive

The Health Service Executive (HSE) provides all of Ireland’s public health services in hospitals and communities across the country. Their vision of a healthier Ireland with a high quality health service valued by all, feeds directly into the way they want to recruit and the experience they want to provide every candidate. The HSE is also a values driven organisation with Care, Compassion, Trust and Learning being core tenets of the way they hire.

Key Challenge

Throughout the pandemic it was challenging for the HSE groups to continue hiring in what had traditionally been a face to face interview process. Critical roles from Vaccinators to nurses had to be filled at very short notice with a completely new approach to hiring.


Equitas delivered a centralised platform for interviewing across numerous hospital groups to completely digitise their otherwise paper based approach. This has led to time savings for both candidates and interviewers and led to a large cost saving compared to the traditional paper based approach to interviewing. Remote delivery has also meant access to new talent pools across the world especially for international nurse hiring with candidates applying from over 5 different continents.

What they said

“Equitas is truly an amazing platform and that is testament to the Equitas team and their ability to bring our interviewers along with them, they made it a smooth and seamless transition for us! I have no doubt that they are going to continue to grow and revolutionise interview methods for Irish Healthcare. I am usually a hard person to convince so it is again testament to the reliability, quality and replicability of the platform.”
