Key Challenge

RCSI found the interview process was time-consuming for recruiters, hiring managers, and interviewers, especially dealing with admin, interview campaign setup, invites, note taking, and scanning documents onto a shared drive.

They were keen to revolutionise their process, that can help improve interviews, interview panels and most importantly the candidate experience in the long run.


Equitas helped to streamlined RCSI’s hiring process, saving time in the set up, delivery and evaluation of interviews.

The audio and transcription features helped RCSI to reduce the amount of manual note taking for each candidate. Additionally Equitas provided relatively easy scoring with real time feedback, while ensuring everything is saved securely on the system.



Over 3,500 interviews were completed across 500+ different roles across 6 sites

What they said

“The easy selling point for Hiring Managers to get involved was that they didn’t have to write down notes on each candidate and all the scoring was done in the system… they are well on board and can’t wait to use the system again.”
