Podcast fan? Your ears are in for a treat! This blog is dedicated to the five best podcasts you should be listening to - featuring everything from industry insights and daily motivation to gripping crime series. If you’re looking to reinvigorate your podcast playlist, keep reading.

Ted Talks

Ted Talks are world famous for a very good reason: they’re fascinating.  Featuring a wealth of inspirational speakers, and topics spanning everything from how to harness your potential, insights on tech and science, explorations into psychology and human behaviour and much more, you’re guaranteed to discover something new and inspirational.

If you’re looking for some recruitment related Ted Talks, we recommend Richard St John’s eight secrets of success, Amy Cuddy’s Your body language shapes who you are, and Regina Hartley’s Why the best hire might not have the perfect resume.

The 5 AM Miracle

Supercharge your day before most people have even clambered out of bed with Jeff Sanders’ weekly 5 AM Miracle podcast. Topics include personal development, healthy habits and productivity, and how to overcome obstacles to your life and professional goals. With over five million downloads and ranked number one in iTunes business categories, it’s fair to assume that Jeff is onto a good thing with his 5 AM Miracle podcast.


Ideal for getting your head out of ‘office mode’, Missing is one of the best new podcasts for anyone who loves mysteries. Delve into the fascinating topic of how people disappear and what life’s like if you’re on the run with this podcast hosted by bestselling author Tim Weever. Ideal for switching off after a long day at the office, we guarantee you’ll be gripped from the first episode of this eight-part series.

Recruiting Future

Recruitment marketing expert Matt Adler is renowned for his skills in helping companies get to grips with the rapidly transforming recruitment and HR arena through sharing his insight on strategic innovation. The weekly Recruiting Future podcast is your go-to source of forward thinking information and inspiration, featuring interviews with industry thought leaders and leading practitioners driving the industry forward.

REC Scale Up

Last but not least, a bit of cheeky self-promotion. The REC’s Scale Up podcast of interviews with industry leaders and innovators is a great source of recruitment insight. Recent podcasts have featured the inspirational DP Connect founder and chairwoman Toni Cocozza, Impellam CEO and 2016's winner of the Lifetime Achievement IRP Award, Julia Robertson, and nGage group CEO Tim Cook. Rich in insight, advice and entertaining stories from the inside of the industry, the Scale Up podcast is a must for anyone and everyone working in recruitment.
