Nefeli Zachou – Talent Partner, Product & Engineering at Moneybox

Tell us a bit about Moneybox and what makes Moneybox  such a great place to work?

Moneybox is an app which democratises saving and investing- forget sharks in suits that provide help to individuals who are already wealthy. On the inside, Moneybox is definitely a winner because of our awesome culture: an open and relaxed environment which encourages and promotes continuous learning and improvement, offers autonomy but also solid mentoring and support.

How did you first hear about What interested you in using a platform over another method of recruitment?

I first heard about when the CEO reached out to me regarding a Talent Manager role- which was quite funny because at the time I was drafting my pitch deck for a similar product! Tech recruitment can be difficult and there are too many individuals involved who don’t have the required expertise- which is why a specialised platform is the best option, in my opinion. Tech talent needs to have a safe place to look for new roles, without having to be bombarded by agencies and out of the blue phone calls.

How easy was it to onboard to and start finding candidates?What did you think of the candidate quality and engagement levels on

Onboarding was fairly quick and easy, I only had to connect our ATS and sync our roles, provide some images to show our office and teams, and save some searches so I can get alerts when new candidates became available. Afterwards, I could select salary ranges and specific technologies and start contacting candidates who were suitable! Generally, I got a good response rate compared to other platforms such as LinkedIn etc.- I think a big part of this is because of the Talent Managers who act as ambassadors of our brand whenever they spot a candidate who might be a good fit, making things super easy for us to follow up with. Of course, the product and culture did play a significant part in this, but we are people at the end of the day and sometimes it’s not possible to keep up with all startup things.

Tell us about your experience with the service provided by the team?

After 5 hires in 3 months, I can definitely recommend to any company looking to hire engineers/ designers/ data scientists, as the process is quick and easy, and you get the support of Account Managers and Talent Managers along the way.

Do you have any advice for other companies looking to find candidates and hire through

Best advice for a company that is just starting with Set everything up properly (company page, email templates, meeting with talent team etc) before you start looking and reaching out to candidates- and life will become much easier!
