“ZOE recently engaged Hawkwood to run the search for our first In-house Talent Acquisition hire. During the initial briefing call, we stress-tested the key considerations of the various different viable candidate types, before agreeing on a solid brief. This also included re-jigging the selection process slightly to ensure we could engage with some of the best passive candidates, in addition to those who were actively seeking a move at that time.
Having met a great range of Talent Acquisition professionals with relevant tech start-up experience, we ultimately hired someone who had an appealing mix of earlier experience in larger consumer tech brands, with more recent experience independently launching and developing a TA function in a start-up – much like the task in hand at ZOE!
Overall, we’re really happy with both the process, the collaboration and the outcome; our new recruit is playing a central role in attracting great people in to our business, improving talent density and as a result shaping a culture where all Zoentists feel they can do the best work of their lives.”
