At Hayward Hawk we can't advise on Work from home best practice, how to keep a positive mindset in uncertain times or how the economy might be affected etc. We leave that to the experts in those fields.
We do know a thing or 2 about recruitment though, and we would be happy to advise, assist and chat about all things recruitment. We are open for chats on our softphones, Zoom, MS Teams, Houseparty, Whatsapp, Instagram and every other trendy communication app :)
