The challenge

For Vodafone, a strong pipeline of relevant candidates is key, particularly for their new division, ‘Digital Vodafone’. Needing help to find senior applicants able to work with their new tech stack, Vodafone faced low levels of engagement from candidates and struggled with relevancy from those that were.

With other recruitment platforms unable to provide suitable, relevant candidates, Vodafone had to find a solution to hiring talented candidates to fill the hiring pipeline for their new digital brand.

With only a small in-house recruitment team and hiring for a variety of different roles in various different markets, Vodafone needed to be able to quickly identify which candidates were most relevant for the roles they were hiring for, as well as improve their overall perception as a digital brand.
