Wexford-based start-up Sonru is one of four shortlisted companies for the iTalent competition as part of the HR Tech Conference in Amsterdam in November.

Sonru is an automated online video interview solution for screening candidates, replacing first-round phone and on-site interviews.

According to the organisers, the iTalent competition will give HR leaders and executives “a chance to see how start-ups are moving and shaking things up with new technology, new processes and new business models”.

Sonru founder Ed Hendrick will be making the Sonru pitch. He said: “It’s an honour to be identified as one of a handful of hot technologies in the HR and recruitment space across Europe.

“Companies like Volvo, Johnson & Johnson, PaddyPower, BioWare (a Division of EA Games), Allianz Worldwide Care and CERN have innovated in their talent acquisition processes by using Sonru and we look forward to sharing our learnings and love of online video interviewing at HR Tech Europe 2011.”

The judging panel will include Bill Boorman, founder, @BillBoorman; Craig Fisher, vice-president, Ajax Social Media; Geoff Webb, founder and master sourcer, Radical Events; and Jon Ingham (MC), HR and social media strategist, Strategic Dynamics.
