Case Studies

Buyer - Fast-paced Chemical Manufacturer


Overview

Our client, a fast-paced Chemicals manufacturer, had been looking for over six months to find the ‘right’ person for their business and considered this a difficult recruit when we were invited to work on their brief. They had tried recruiting through various non-specialist database agencies and were not able to find the calibre of candidate with the specialist Chemical skills needed; the company had also attempted a limited networking search independently using their own industry contacts with no success.

Strategy

We were requested to take over their recruitment on a retained basis to provide a specialist solution as their exclusive recruitment partner. We worked closely with both the HR Manager and the Supply Chain Manager, understanding their complex, overall business needs and through a combined search utilising direct search - headhunting, internet advertising and networking with our vast industry contacts in the relevant Chemicals sector, we sourced, attracted and secured an ideal candidate for their role in a fast timetable from assignment commencement to our short list presentation and offer.
