This week we're joined by John Burnet, Head of Recruitment, UK, ThoughtWorks.

An avid Man United Fan (much to our Co-Founder & CEO Mark's delight), John discusses what it's like to be working from home with four babies - two human and two pug - with a fifth on the way, and talks us through his personal journey from training to be a teacher to becoming a recruitment leader.

What's more, John chats through the notion of being a 'purebred' recruiter, why candidate experience should be the highest priority on your hiring to-do list and why hiring manager experience shouldn't be forgotten.

Talking through why ThoughtWorks is a feedback-led business, John and Mark explain why empowering people throughout the interview process is key to removing bias and creating a great hiring experience overall.
