“If people can imagine their signatures on the form, it’s the first step to being able to see themselves as part of our team,” said Carlos Anuncibay, the new ECD of Saatchi & Saatchi Sri Lanka.

“A lot of recruitment today is done online, and though it is a great way to reach potential candidates, we wanted to attract creative people who really understand and appreciate the art of a beautifully executed idea,” he said.
