Our then Recruitment Consultant (and now Client Lead & Key Account Manager) Joe Goddard, was tasked with helping Nick fulfil these hiring ambitions. Nick and Joe worked together to establish what success looks like for Diegesis and to create a clear recruitment strategy.
Over the past 3 years, this strategy has excelled, and Joe has helped Diegesis to hire 54 exceptional graduates. Our work has helped the team cement their growth plans, continue to develop even during COVID, and successfully launch new products in 2022.
And in the process, the Diegesis team have developed a productive and comfortable relationship with Joe. As a result, Joe has built a second-to-none understanding of Diegesis as a business, brand, and group of people. And through Joe, Diegesis were able to communicate with some of the country’s best graduate talent, right after leaving university.
Joe provided insider knowledge of the graduate market to ensure that Nick hired software developers who were right for the culture and working style of Diegesis. As we realised the term “software developer” was too narrow we have now evolved our role to “software engineer” and at interview we explain that this means people who want to gain a broad and diverse set of skills across the SFIA+ framework, not just someone who codes.
This two-way relationship is fundamental to businesses, like Diegesis, that want to scale their hiring.
