Thursday, May 28, 202032 min

In this week’s episode, we’re joined by Rob Holdstock, Talent Acquisition Partner, Secret Escapes and our very own Ben Kandebe also makes a special guest appearance. 

Probably one of the nicest guys in recruitment, Rob really knows his stuff and talks to us about candidate experience and mentality at this time. 

As well as this, Rob shares his thoughts on the ‘new normal’ in terms of interview strategy and process and discusses how Secret Escapes are tackling remote hiring. 

If that wasn’t enough, we get an update on Darren’s Football Manager progress, the infamous hackajob ‘Water Cooler’ Slack channel gets a shoutout and we learn about different tried-and-tested lockdown routines. 

If you have any comments, questions or queries, please email 'hello@hackajob.co' and we'll get back to you. 

Please note that this episode was recorded live and all participants took part separately.
