Ep 227: Challenging Recruiting Norms


Despite an influx of technology over the last 20 years, the fundamentals of recruiting haven’t really been disrupted. So how should we be challenging recruiting norms which no longer deliver what employers need and are process and mindset more important than technology?

To help me answer these questions, and more besides, my guest this week is Matt Buckland making a welcome return to the show. Matt is currently Founder and Head Of Talent at Rainmaking Venture Studio and has been experimenting with some new approaches to make hiring fairer and more effective.

In the interview, we discuss:

  • The importance of challenging assumptions
  • Using data to uncover bias and why bias is a loaded word
  • Anonymous testing
  • Why process is critical
  • Making culture and mindset shifts rather than relying on techniques and technologies
  • Matt also talks about the recruiter networking group DBR and shares his thoughts on the future of recruiting.
