After what feels like a lifetime of lockdowns, restrictions, and hitting pause on life, things are slowly returning to normal. And frankly, we couldn’t be happier. During this global pandemic, countless businesses all over the world introduced hiring freezes, furlough schemes and had to make some tough decisions. But there has been a shift, and we have front row seats. The world is returning to work, and this has resulted in some pretty amazing companies setting off on hiring sprees, with growth ambitions for the next few months.
And that’s what brings us here today. We wanted to shine a bit of a spotlight on three brilliant jobs that are open right now, and give you a bit of cool information about them.
