Mimecast employees in San Francisco overlooking Golden Gate Bridge

Mimecast hire 6 of the best


MimecastFor the first time London based Mimecast – Provider of cloud-based email risk management services for business email security, email archiving and email continuity – partnered with Raw Talent Academy as they aimed to attract the best trainee talent from around the UK to join their London office.

With their exciting growth plans, Mimecast were intrigued by Raw Talent Academy’s process and were keen to give their different approach a try.

The Audition Day, run by Raw Talent Academy, took place on the 30th July 2015. Held at Mimecast’s London office, the day saw the top candidates undertake a series of real life business tasks while being assessed by Mimecast’s senior management team as well as Raw Talent Academy assessors. The unique Audition Day process has been designed by Raw Talent Academy’s founder Lee McQueen to provide candidates with a platform to demonstrate their ability so that clients can judge the candidates based on what they can do and not what is on their CV.

The day resulted in 6 people being offered a position with the ever-expanding Mimecast.
