The challenge

Embarking on a significant transformation, it’s NewDay’s goal to provide a seamless digital journey for customers, as well as become the best digital cards business on the market. Wanting to move away from a reliance on third party suppliers, NewDay is in the process of building an in-house capability from the ground up, with a strong focus on agile delivery methods. Having exhausted traditional channels, NewDay needed access to a new, fresh talent pool in order to drive their transformation forward.

 

The solution

 

By using hackajob, NewDay were able to explore a completely different, more targeted talent pool in comparison to what they had access too in the previous twelve months. Having lined up several final-stage interviews in just ten days, all of NewDay’s chosen candidates were technically pre-screened for the exact skills they were required to have. Enabling talent to skip a ‘technical assessment stage’, NewDay were able to reduce their interviewing process to just three phases; providing them with a significant competitive advantage in the market.
What’s more, the accuracy of hackajob’s matching product undoubtedly reduced the number of CV’s NewDay needed to review in order to make a hire. Helping them to make an unquestionable impact on their D&I targets, NewDay used hackajob’s unbiased hiring module which in turn empowered them to make three senior female hires.

42% female hires
