Patrick White
Head of Innovation & Mapped Product Manager

Patrick is the Product Manager for Mapped – A new aptitude testing platform jointly developed by Freshminds & Applied.

Patrick joined Freshminds in 2013 and has an in-depth range of experience across the recruiting landscape. Starting as a Strategy and Data Science Specialist on the Experienced Hire team, he then moved across to the Graduate & Early Careers team. Here, he was responsible for running a number of graduate schemes on behalf of clients and supporting a broad variety of well-known retail & consumer businesses develop their junior talent pipelines.

After being involved with graduate recruitment and understanding the various challenges that accompanied large-scale hiring for both candidate and client, it became apparent that there was a need for change to the way talent was tested and assessed. In 2016 Patrick began shaping the idea for a new aptitude testing platform to provide a positive candidate experience, deliver powerful analytics, and ultimately eliminate harmful effects on diversity. This is now Mapped, a jointly developed product from Freshminds & Applied, which Patrick manages end-to-end.  

Patrick has a BA(Hons) in Philosophy from Warwick University and, prior to Freshminds, co-ran an independent recruitment boutique for the offshore wind industry.
