MitchelLake was engaged to recruit the Director of Product, Platform and Director of Product, Consumer.

The role pivoted as the search went on and the assignment was delivered as Vice President of Product.

This successful placement led to an onsite engagement. As well as providing Wikia with a full-time onsite talent manager, we allocated two other resources to assist with hiring and developing longer term strategies and to identify gaps in current processes.

In addition to delivering seven hires in the first three months, we have been running sessions to increase recruitment knowledge and upskill individual hiring managers. We have also delivered a marked improvement in candidate care which has been backed up by a change in the quality and quantity of candidate feedback we’ve been receiving.
