Show Notes

This week Chris meets Holly J Smith, Co-Founder and CRO at GIGL.

"Gigl was born out of the desire to bring recruitment into the 21st century. We wanted to make it simpler for companies and candidates to connect with one another, in a way that's truly engaging for everyone involved.

We are not a recruitment agency. We are a technology platform that's fundamentally changing the way people find and apply for work.

We recognise that you're so much more than a CV. Through video, gigl allows you to express your true self when finding work, saving you and the employer time and money!"


Holly thrives in the sales and commercial world, specialising in the FMCG & event industries. With over 15 years experience she is dedicated to her customers, brands and businesses to ensure the very best product & service is delivered to the market place.

During the chat we discuss:

  • Holly's journey so far with a very international spin!
  • Her work for Glastonbury...living & working on a farm! ( Tractor passing by for authenticity!)
  • GIGL's ability to reach the next generation
  • Responding in real-time to applications 
  • Making recruitment fun and bringing the spotlight back to people!
  • Making applying for a job accessible for all, so you can sell yourself not a piece of paper!
  • The future of GIGL 
  • Running Charities, Running Marathons, and getting back on the hockey team!


Enjoy!
