      Excessively long process and unnecessary stages. One stage is with the people operations person, they are really nice during the interview and one you join, they treat you like you don't matter.

    *Back Office Team of the Year* Last night we were delighted to receive two fantastic honours at the TALiNT International Annual Recruitment Awards! We won the Hinterview Client Service Award for our solutions-based approach to the challenges within the APAC market and our global operations team was recognised as The Parasol Back Office Team of the Year for its outstanding level of candidate onboarding. In addition to our awards, we were also highly commended for Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion Award for our constant efforts to interweave D&I into everything that we do. We’re extremely proud and would like to thank all of our clients, candidates and global staff for making these awards possible. And thanks to TALiNT International (formerly Recruitment International UK) for hosting such a great evening!
