How G-Research & Citi Used Virtual Events to Reach Specific Candidate Markets

In a competitive job market, sourcing the right talent is challenging. This is especially true for companies seeking candidates in particular locations or with niche specializations. G-Research and Citi partnered with Hired Events as a creative solution to find top tech talent in specific markets.

With custom targeting based on their open positions and interest from prequalified candidates, these companies invested in Virtual Candidate Events (VCE) to expedite the hiring process and achieve recruiting goals.

Hired’s team of experts helped execute panel discussions featuring company speakers and offered event, technical, promotional, and marketing support.

G-Research Dives into a New Market

As a leading quantitative finance research firm in Europe, G-Research established itself as a top tech employer in the UK. However, establishing a new office in the US meant the company needed to build its employer brand in a different country. G-Research sought to attract top DevOps Engineers, Software Engineers, Engineering Managers, and Site Reliability Engineers based in Texas — the location of its brand-new office.

With a Virtual Candidate Event, G-Research offered an inside look into life as an engineer at G-Research. Candidates had the opportunity to hear directly from G-Research’s talent acquisition and engineering teams about:

  • Infrastructure as Code/High Integrity
  • Internal SaaS platform management without human admin access
  • Implementing patterns for monitoring
  • Open roles, of course!

Attendees left enlightened about G-Research’s work and excited about the opportunity to join it. When asked, 100% opted in to learn more about life at G-Research. Impressed by the results, G-Research was able to both reach and engage candidates in a new market to build a team distributed across continents!

“We have already [12hrs post event] had messages coming through from candidates we were previously struggling to engage.”
