Pull information from email subject

Hi all,

 

I have a flow that sends an email "Title" to a Sharepoint list if the condition is met. I have this part working fine. I would like to then extract a part of the title and update the same record with that data.

 

This is the title:

New Hire Notification - John Doe

 

I would like to extract "John Doe" from the title and update the list item column "New Employee Name" with John Doe.

 

I just don't know how to extract that name from the title. Can I do it with the SharePoint "Get Items filter query"? If so, what would the query look like? 

 

Thanks for any assistance.
