PizzaExpress yourself!

Everyone at Changeworknow is delighted to be working with PizzaExpress as they launch their new restaurant in Richmond. We began a partnership with them in July to develop an online recruitment system and so far the key highlights include:

  • Delivering the system from start to finish in just 4 weeks
  • 500 applications in the first week alone
  • Just over 1000 applications received for this one restaurant including applications from fire eaters, jugglers and ballerinas (this must be down to the creative and quirky attraction strategy in place!)
  • Restaurant fully staffed and opened last week
We like to support our clients here at Changeworknow so last week we ordered pizza take away for our company meeting - PizzaExpress of course (although we will have a dilemma next week when Zizzi go live with their online recruitment system!)

The next step will be management recruitment online. However before that some of us here in the office are really hoping for a visit to the new restaurant to be "flirted with" and to see what all the hype is about. Watch this space!

A New Addition to our Team!

We are delighted to announce that we have a new member of our team. Kavin Nijhawan joined us a few weeks ago and is already establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with in our IT team. If anyone can keep those servers up and running then Kavin can. With a strong background and experience in systems administration working for a US software provider Kavin is quickly getting involved and immersed in the robust Changeworknow infrastructure that we provide for our team and our clients. He has even been spotted with a Ruby on Rails manual on his desk!

Welcome Kavin!
