Tech has always been quite an exclusive industry. The skills were always seen as highly complex and therefore needed training from top institutions. For a long time, there has been a snobbery around tech roles, with many feeling that they needed top graduates to fill them, and no other talent would do. Graduates from MIT or Harvard, Oxford or Cambridge, were favoured by tech employers and seen as the best of the best. …


Tech recruitment is changing rapidly. Now, people need tech talent more than ever before, and for many scaling businesses, there are more roles than there are people to fill them. This presents a problem for HR and TA teams as there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to dedicate to these roles. As a result, they’re stretched to their limits.

Tech businesses are growing rapidly, and many have to hire more than ever before to keep up with a surge in demand.

So, when you have hiring managers that need to hire dozens, if not hundreds of people who have no capacity for interviewing, how do you solve that problem?

Some companies, like Moderna, have opted for a virtual recruitment event. Adopting these digital technologies increases the…


Notice periods have long been an issue for recruiters and employers. In a scaling business, you often need to hire talent quickly to meet a sudden increase in demand or to help you reach the next level of growth. Of course, having to wait for your perfect candidate to start is never ideal, but many of us are willing to do so for the right person, even if it pauses growth plans slightly. …


The idea of hybrid workin g is nothing new. In fact, it’s all many of us have been talking about for the last year. Some workers thrive in the office, whereas some work better in their own space with a bit of flexibility. We’re all different and find ourselves in different life situations. Therefore, for many business owners, the idea of giving their workers the option of where and how to work, combining the best of office life and remote working, seems to be a sensible option. If employees have a choice and flexibility, they’ll likely be happier, right?

Diversity is still a hot topic and remains a priority for hiring managers, particularly those recruiting in the tech industry. In fact, according to research by LinkedIn, 37% of recruiters ranked sourcing more diverse candidates as a top trend to focus on in the near future.

Diverse hiring means recognising individual differences and hiring people who may have alternative backgrounds, viewpoints and experiences to you. When we talk about diverse hiring, we don’t just mean issues of race or gender. It’s about individual differences. This can mean ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or race, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, political beliefs…


Employee attrition is a huge talking point right now. As the pandemic has changed employee mindsets and priorities in a whole range of industries, many are having a rethink about their careers and next steps. As many businesses prepare to return to work, many workers are beginning to rethink their current roles, existing companies and are preparing to take a leap of faith.

However, there’s another issue. Employees naturally move on. They may need to move up a pay grade, are relocating, changing careers, or even just looking for a new challenge. It’s natural for people to want to move…


In an already competitive talent market, the fight for senior roles is even more intense. While developers, data scientists and engineers are increasingly in demand every day, imagine the demand for those senior hires with niche skills. It’s incredibly high, and everyone wants a piece of them.

Sometimes, you can hire a more junior candidate hoping that they’ll grow into the role. However, sometimes a senior hire is not just necessary, but it’s essential. For example, you may need to hire someone with leadership experience to help guide your teams, or you may require someone self-sufficient who can get on…


If you’re new to recruitment or are even a startup business, outsourcing may come with a lot of concerns. The people you hire for your business are pivotal to its success, especially in the early stages. These individuals will be responsible for growing your product, growing future teams, and ultimately ensuring that your business becomes profitable and successful. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the thought of trusting someone else to handle the recruitment process strikes fear in many startup leaders.

However, there are so many myths and untruths about outsourcing recruitment. Without adequately understanding what RPO is or believing the…


Benefits and perks are becoming more important to candidates than ever. In a competitive talent market, benefits are a way in which employers can differentiate themselves from their biggest competitors when salary and culture are level playing fields. In addition, offering extra perks to employees can improve your employer brand significantly as they show your appreciation, make employees’ lives easier, and add an extra layer to your company culture.

Over the last year, the world of work has been at a standstill, and it’s allowed employers to look at their employer brand and EVP more carefully. As a result, they’ve…


We’re all online more than ever before. Whether we’re buying a product online, signing up for a service, or simply researching, the customer experience is essential. However, the customer experience is not just online; it reflects all touchpoints that a customer has with your brand, from advertisements on social media to their experience in-store and even the packaging that a product comes in. All of these touchpoints work together to create an experience, and it’s this experience that will define how they perceive you but, most importantly, will determine whether they return. It’s been said that a great customer experience…
