As we all know recruiting is currently going through a massive period of evolution. Skill shortages, different ways of working and changes in the way we communicate are all contributing to the need for recruiting to be more strategic. But what does an effective recruiting strategy look like in 2019?

My guest this week is Mark Duebel, Global Technical Recruiter at Elastic Search. Elastic is facing some really interesting recruiting challenges which they are addressing in a very strategic way.

In the interview we discuss:

  • The unique nature of Elastic’s recruiting challenges
  • The problems of marketing distributed jobs with no fixed location
  • Dealing with a high level of inbound applications in a human way while keeping the bar high
  • Elastic’s “source code” culture
  • Structured recruiting processes
  • The role of automation and technology

Mark also talks us through the move from reactive to strategic recruiting and his thoughts on the future direction of talent acquisition at Elastic
