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.

The solution

Because relevancy was vital, Vodafone concentrated on hackajob’s bespoke AI-matching algorithm. Choosing to trial hackajob’s platform blind against another well-known tech recruitment platform, Vodafone found that hackajob came out on top with significantly better candidate relevancy. Because of this, Vodafone could be confident that their overall perception from a ‘mobile-only’ to ‘tech-first’ brand was changing for the better, thanks to hackajob’s recommendations and advice. What’s more, Vodafone could be confident that they were they interviewing the right candidates for the roles available.Favouring hackajob’s artificial intelligence combined with its end-to-end support, Vodafone were able to hire 20 candidates in just one year thanks to hackajob’s 72% candidate relevancy rate.
