The Challenge

The challenge of a quickly growing and expanding company like Unacast is the need of hiring a large amount of demanding positions with a variety of skill sets in short amounts of time.

The Process
Given the needs of Unacast we knew we had to quickly establish a standardised recruitment process that followed the FE methodology. This enabled us to run smooth processes that simultaneously allowed for quick iterations due to our methodology's clear and proven structure. To generate a steady inbound influx of candidates  that would power these recruitment processes, we utilised Unacast's interesting product, great brand and unique opportunities to create global impact in order to create buzz around their hiring campaign.
The needed agility shows especially in how fast some of these processes went: one of the recruitment processes - from the candidate applying to the offer being signed - only lasted 12 days.
The Solution

Understanding the unique company profile and culture of Unacast was crucial and of great benefit in the recruitment process. Through a close collaboration with the hiring managers we ensured not only the right approach to sourcing but also the right prioritisation during the assessment. Especially our personality tests and cases provided us with the necessary data to make informed decisions that supplied Unacast with candidates that fit both the position and skill set as well as team and culture.
