Talent Executive, Gymshark
At Gymshark, we’re hiring extensively across tech and with hackajob being tech specialists, this is brilliant for us because it means we have extra support and can speak to targeted candidates. The candidates we speak to are really strong. I would definitely recommend hackajob - they really do take the heavy lifting out from our side so that we can focus on other areas and we’re really excited to continue working with them. The webinars, events and marketing activities are all things that we wouldn’t necessarily have the capacity to do, and it’s going to help us get our name out there in the tech world.

Talent Partner, Auden
Last year, I was the only person in recruitment for Auden, so to have a platform that was saving me time and resulting in talent in the background was amazing. Not only do you get access to some really great talent, but I think that partnering with their team and having access to their expertise has been a really big success and makes hackajob stand out from other platforms. As we pivoted towards a more remote-working world, hackajob has enabled us to access a different talent pool than we would have been able to target previously. Overall, it’s been a great benefit to us.

My experience with hackajob has been really positive. Before using their platform, our average cost per hire for tech was 10k and since partnering with them, it’s gone down to 4k (versus agency fees).
What’s more, alongside our own efforts, our acceptance rate has bumped up to 86%. Whenever any changes need to be made in terms of our ways of working as a business, their product team is always onboard and really supportive.
