Talent Point of View: Improving the Applicant Experience.

A common misconception that people have about us is that we just find people to fill roles. But the hiring process actually begins much further back! We support our customers throughout the entire process – up to and including interviews. And, crucially, we help them to improve their applicant experience along the way.

But how important is a good applicant experience when hiring? Is it #goodvibesonly when it comes to applicants accepting offers, or are there other factors that tip the scales even more?

In this edition of Talent Point of View, we’re whipping out the magnifying glass and taking a closer look at the applicant experience – both from the applicant’s point of view, and from the employer’s.

Bushfire Bakes & Meat-Free Pledges!

To celebrate Australia Day and help with ongoing efforts to support Australia after their catastrophic bushfires, we held an office bake sale to raise proceeds for the cause! After a delectable day filled with sugary treats and crumbs, we raised a total of £115 for Wildlife Victoria. Great job, guys!

February also marked the beginning of our Meat-Free Feb! 11 of our terrific TPers have pledged to #GoMeatless for Feb in a bid to live green and bring down their carbon footprint. What a fab start to the year!
