Pause Cat Café in Bournemouth, England is holding a ‘speed-dating’ style recruitment event for the cafe’s cats to select potential employees.
The café hopes that this novel 'Recruitment Catsultancy' will help them find the most suitable human additions to their team. The café is inundated with applicants every time they post new jobs, with over 700 applicants for their last advertised role.
Today, Cat Café will hold a speed-dating style recruitment evening:
Potential candidates will spend a few minutes at stations throughout the cafe to meet each cat, answer questions and complete tasks to assess their suitability.
Each cat in the café has a special bond with one or more members of the team, affectionately named their ‘Mum’ or ‘Dad’. Each cat’s ‘pawrent’ has designed a task fitting their cat’s requirements;
As well as meeting the feline team, candidates will be allocated time with key members of the human crew including staff, volunteers and regular customers. The ethos of the cafe centers around kindness; helping others and connecting with people and animals from diverse backgrounds, so they are seeking individuals who share that vision.
The café hopes to use the event to recruit several staff for the busy holiday period and sees this event as a quirky way to make sure the cats get the purrfect human attendants to keep them in the manner to which they have become accustomed.
