Using Live Chat Messaging to Challenge Misconceptions
The Bank of England’s careers team needed a new and innovative way to engage with candidates and build awareness of their available opportunities at attraction. The team wanted to ensure that they could bring the brands unique culture to life and offer candidates an insight into what it was like to work at the bank. As an iconic institution, the Bank of England careers team needed to challenge the misconceptions that many candidates had of the working environment and culture at a bank.
The Bank of England careers team introduced the Meet & Engage Live Group Chat platform to host regular live chat messaging sessions for their candidates.

Connecting candidates to current employees allowed the brand to provide candidates with deeper insight into the company culture.
