Covid-19: Our Commitment To Employers And Candidates

16 March 2020

Headcount Covid19 (002)

​Headcount is committed to delivering high quality services for employers and candidates. In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, we are adapting our operations to ensure continuity, as well as offering additional assistance for those whose plans are evolving.

Highest priority will, of course, be placed on ensuring the health and wellbeing of our staff, clients and candidates. A number of our teams are already working from home, and we are well prepared to continue operations on this basis.

Remote Hiring: 100% Online Interviews

The good news for employers and candidates alike is that ‘remote-only’ interview processes are nothing new. In fact, we’ve already run countless processes where employers and candidates don’t meet face to face.

Until now, video conference interviewing has been prevalent for tech roles, or where long-distance relocation is involved. As we enter a potentially-extended period of widespread remote working though, this will certainly become more commonplace.

Headcount has extensive experience running online interview processes – both for ourselves and our clients – and we will be happy to provide advice for candidates and clients on how best to approach these.


We’re also offering additional commitments for employers and candidates:

  • People-First Strategy

We firmly believe that talent is critical for success in business. In challenging times, even more so. Ensuring your business has the right people in place to achieve results is of critical importance for us.

  • Supporting Change & Transformation

For businesses evolving or adapting in response to new market conditions, we are able to support with specialist recruitment services including interim leadership talent and contract hires.

  • Market Insight & Guidance

Headcount’s unique position as a global agency with networks across the industry and a talent database of over 100,000 candidates ensures we are well placed to offer insight and guidance during uncertain times.

  • Putting Valuable Skills To Work

The payment sector’s ongoing requirements for talent means those with relevant experience and specialist expertise remain highly valuable. We invite all those seeking work to register with us today and check our latest job opportunities regularly.
