This article has been designed to answer all your general questions about Hatch! You can check out our other FAQ docs below:


Q: Why are Hatch roles 2.5 days per week?

A:  We’ve found that 2.5 days per week/20 hours per week allows students to balance work, Uni, and life whilst ensuring they have enough time to contribute meaningful value in their Hatch work placement. Some students are able and willing to do more hours, but we suggest you coordinate this with them during the interview stage.
Q: Are there templates for creating the roles?

A: Yes! Under each section of the role creation there are templates and sample answers to guide you through creating your role. 

Q: What level/degrees are the students?

A: Our Hatch students are any where from first year students to post-graduate students, and are predominantly Bachelor students towards the end of their degree. The degrees the students come from include:

  • Business (37%)

  • STEM (25%)

  • Humanities (21%)

  • Design (9%)

  • Double degrees (36%)

Q: How do you ensure we get a fantastic student?

A: Great question! Essentially, to ensure you get a fantastic student, we assess their:

  • Written responses to the task based questions understand the extent of previous experience completing similar role tasks

  • Video responses for their motivation and verbal communication skills

  • Match to the hiring managers need and role requirements

  • General ability

We then:

  1. Present you with a shortlist of between 2-5 candidates who we believe will thrive in role, from the above analysis. 

  2. You then look through the different profiles and choose which students you would like to interview. 

  3. After interviewing the students, you pick your top choice, and they typically start the following week.

Q: Can I republish my role?

A: Yes, if you would like your role to be republished, please let us know and we can do this for you.

Q: Can we get resources/more details on Hatch that we can use to educate hiring managers internally?

A: Yes! Please let us know if you would like additional resources on Hatch and we can send these to you. You can also access our website and support centre for more details on Hatch.

Q: How can we have visibility into who is coming into the organisation?

A: You can ensure visibility into who is coming into the organisation by setting someone in HR/Talent as a default approver of each role. This will mean that the role will not be launched until it has been approved by HR/Talent.
