Dept recruitment process
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has turned the world upside down. Keeping the business running as close to normal as possible with people working from home is challenging, but it seems everyone is doing the best they can despite this. At Dept, we’re still creating and working on awesome projects for our clients and supporting and advising them in the best way possible. At the same time, it forces us to make some changes here and there. One of them is the way in which we do recruitment. We want to be as transparent as possible and offer some clarity in this, so we’ve written this short article to inform you a little bit about recruitment at Dept during the Corona crisis period.
Following the RIVM guidelines, we are mostly working from home. “Are you still interviewing then?!” you might ask. The answer to that is not a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’. The full answer is, for some roles, yes, and for some roles no. For the roles currently posted on the career page, we do still want to get in touch with the best, most talented people who could be a Dept fit. This means we would like to have a first digital interview to get to know each other. Interviews are currently being held via Google Hangouts or using other digital tools.
Following this, if both sides are open to continuing the process, we will do so after the Corona storm has passed. First, we have to see how this crisis has affected the business and then make hiring decisions accordingly.
Our Dept company culture and vibe at the office are really important to us, so we want you to experience this first hand! Once the Coronavirus and the Dutch government allow us to do so, we, therefore, aim to have all 2nd interviews happen at the office. The second round will most likely consist of a case (completed either at home or at the office) and a subsequent interview in person. When this will be is still a bit of a mystery, also to us. But rest assured, our recruiters will keep you updated on that to the best of their abilities!
Thanks for your patience and understanding during this time.
