Parsing text from email subject

I would like to create a expression that grabs a persons first and last name from an email subject but I can't figure out how to do it. 

 

The subject line would be similar to this "New Hire Notification - FirstName LastName"

Hi @usethegreymatte 

 

You probably just want to use the replace expression

You're missing the final parameter ''.

 

replace(outputs('Compose'),'New Hire Notification -','')

Here is another way to approach your issue.  You can actually stop at my Get Name Compose action - the remaining actions just split out the first and last names.
