Oak Engage launches new recruitment drive
Tech firm and intranet pioneers, Oak Engage are currently looking to hire another 27 people into their team with roles in Product, Engineering, Customer Success, Marketing and Business Development, as they continue their growth and expand internationally.
The Newcastle-based firm also intends to add a further 8 roles before the end of July, almost doubling the 55 jobs already created at their headquarters at Generator Studios in the city centre. Oak Engage has also hired 17 people already this year.
Oak enables businesses to engage and connect their people through its mobile app and SaaS (Software as a Service) platform. The cloud-based, next-generation platform provides a range of internal communications tools that integrate seamlessly with office applications, helping improve productivity. There’s a key focus on wellbeing and engagement, which is more crucial than ever before with people working remotely due to the pandemic.
The Intranet Software experts work with some of the world's biggest brands including Aldi, Halfords, ITV, Boohoo and most recently, Five Guys. Their app was launched to the entire Five Guy’s workforce in the middle of a pandemic and “was a game-changer in the way we communicate and engage with our people” helping everyone to stay connected and informed.
Will Murray, CEO at Oak said: “Oak is a fast growing company and we’re scaling rapidly. It’s been an exciting journey so far and this is only the beginning. Our investment in technology provides an innovative solution, making our model more efficient and agile, resulting in a better experience for businesses and their people, connecting them at a time when they need it most.
“We’re expanding our team and have a wide range of roles available. We’re proud of our roots and committed to creating opportunities in the region in order to enhance our capabilities for the future. Oak Engage has a brilliant culture and we are eager to take advantage of the talent on our doorstep.
“People who are looking for exciting career options – whether that’s young people or more experienced professionals - no longer need to move out of the region to find them.”
