    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hays in February 2020.

    Interview

    4 round interview stages with a phone interview, multiple situational questions and theory including an assessment centre. This involved multiple people in a room answering questions relating to their experience and recruitment process.

Company Updates

  • What makes a high-performing team so successful? Being motivated by the same goal. That seems obvious, doesn’t it? But, in reality, ensuring each team member has their eyes on the same prize is deceptively difficult to achieve in the world of work: https://social.hays.com/2020/03/02/we-thinking-key-to-effective-teamwork/

    Why "we" thinking is the key to effective teamwork

    If I was to ask you to name an example of a successful team, which one would immediately spring to mind? Perhaps a high-performing sports team such as Manchester City Football Club or the New Zealand All Blacks? For many of us, high-performing teams like these are the encapsulation of good team work.

  • In his latest LinkedIn Influencer blog, our CEO, Alistair Cox reminds us that it takes a human to be a leader of human beings: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/takes-human-leader-beings-alistair-cox/

    It takes a human to be a leader of human beings

    We're all human. We have different hopes and dreams, and different fears and flaws.
