Since 2011, CERN have repeatedly come on record singing Sonru’s praises and advocating for the use of Video Interviewing in the recruitment process. Both James Purvis, CERN’s Head of Talent Acquisition, and Anna Cook, CERN’s Recruitment mananger have been sharing their Sonru success story with journalists and broadcasters so we were delighted to faciliate a depth interview between Anna and The Financial Times yesterday.
A deviation from the typical ‘how we recruit’ and ‘why we use video interviewing’, Tim Smedley’s article gave us an insight into the person behind CERN’s recruitment machine as we learned of her early days as an immunologist and the journey she took to a $1bn a year (£700m) funded research centre at the foot of the Alps.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Anna Cook and although she says in the article: “I feel so enriched and nurtured by meeting these people. It’s a noble profession”, I can confirm that the recruitment profession is better for inviting such a noble servant to its senior ranks. Read the full article here.
