CNA Hardy is a leading specialist commercial insurance provider for their growing global client list within the Lloyd’s and company markets. 

With a manual internal workflow throughout the recruitment process, CNA Hardy were struggling to manage the volume of applications and to track the attribution, leading to disputes with agencies. Whilst cost and time efficiency were key drivers, CNA Hardy wanted to review their entire recruitment process, bringing in an ATS that is intuitive for internal users and ensures that the candidate experience is efficient, effective and reflective of the brand.


As a global, growing business, CNA Hardy collaborated with networx to manage the digital transformation across their end-to-end recruitment process, ensuring an effective, GDPR compliant candidate management system is in place.

A key component of their resourcing strategy is to increase direct hiring and reduce agency spend.  networx facilitates this providing an easy-to-use candidate management system, which enables the recruiter to manage and sift high volumes of applications. The intuitive user interface ensures all users across the organisation can easily access and navigate around the system throughout the recruitment workflow, with additional functionality around reporting insights giving greater visibility of performance data.

Linking with a wide range of job boards and LinkedIn, CNA Hardy’s implementation of networx has strengthened the candidate experience through to application, providing a streamlined and consistently branded experience. With the unique addition of the networx network, CNA Hardy have further sourced 50% of their talent through direct applications. 

Whilst working in partnership, networx have successfully supported CNA Hardy to significantly lower their agency spend, whilst reducing the time from advertising to onboarding.
