meet the new recruits!

Published May 14th 2021

At hireful, we’re here to help you hire – but we’ve been doing a little bit of hiring ourselves recently. The past year has been a whirlwind, but we’re excited to have some new team members on board (and we’re even more excited to get back into the office and challenge them to a game of pool). We thought it’d be great to find out a bit more about our new recruits, so we decided to have a little bit of a Q&A with each of them (they all loved it, honestly!)

I have had some of my design work published online by the BBC!  I designed a chopping board that features two magnetised grips which can hold a variety of foods in place whilst shielding the user’s hand.
