Well, that wasn't quite the start to the year I was expecting as I've been in and out of hospital for the last two weeks. I'm pleased to say though that I'm now well on the way to making a full recovery and regular podcasting service is now resumed. A huge thank you to Nick Price for helping me out and introducing last week's episode, and I would strongly recommend you check out Career Life Stories to find out more about the great work he does.

So on with this week's show. After my recent hospital experience, it seems very fitting that the main focus for this week's guest is recruiting healthcare professionals. Blake Thiess is Director Of Talent Acquisition at Prestige Care. Recruiting healthcare professionals and nurses, in particular, is a real challenge in many countries, and Blake talks about the techniques his team use, as well as the importance of grit and resilience.

In the interview, we discuss:

• Recruiting in a hyper-competitive environment

• Pipelining with a CRM

• Highly targeted recruitment marketing

• Generating brand content

• What do grit and resilience mean in practice

• The skills recruiters need in 2020

• The importance of leveraging video

• Personal brand or employer brand

Blake also discusses the role of technology and shares his thoughts on the future of talent acquisition.
