The challenge

Compare The Market had recently opened a tech hub in the heart of London’s tech scene and needed to rapidly scale their engineering team. In a highly competitive market without a recognised brand, Compare The Market were struggling to get relevant candidates of a high enough standard engaged, and once they did, it often took too long to get them through the process resulting in the candidate withdrawing and accepting a new position elsewhere.

On top of this, the team at Compare The Market were tasked of conducting as much direct sourcing properly and had minimal budget to spend on recruitment agencies.

 

The solution

“hackajob is the best recruitment product, ever.”

Jatinder Bansal
Tech Recruitment Manager
Compare the Market

Previously, Compare the Market had a three stage interview process but by utilising the challenges candidates had completed up-front on hackajob, they were able to reduce this to a two stage process, allowing them to get candidates through their process quicker and reduce their time to hire.

Compare the Market focused their efforts on using hackajob's matching product which provide daily curated shortlists of candidates, highly relevant to their roles. As they had more success on the platform, hackajob's machine learning engine was able to improve the recommendations, leading to less profiles seen to make a hire.
