Our client is a large scale, global manufacturing business, with multiple sites. In this highly competitive international climate as with every Chemical and manufacturing business it is considering ways to reduce its energy costs, carbon emissions and to ensure long term sustainability, jobs and competitiveness.
We were involved in recruiting a Biomass Project Manager. This senior role sat within a ‘strategic, blue sky thinking’ Business Development team. The company was developing a new waste to energy plant, and this was at early development planning stage.
The role was to have a wide ranging remit and involved early planning considerations, supporting external third party consultations, project engineering and operational needs. There was also internal debate about the weight and style of experience required for the role, and therefore the salary pitch. We performed a very thorough benchmarking search of the market for the business, for experienced Project Managers.
We successfully sourced a high calibre candidate that matched our client’s various requirements and was recruited into their team at the early stages of their development plans.
