Our client is a market leading, major heavy industrial Chemicals business that manufactures essential bulk commodity chemicals used in diverse daily products, such as Glass manufacture, Food, FMCG, Pharmaceuticals, Dialysis treatments and Water purification. The business utilises large scale capital assets and plant across its major 24-7 manufacturing sites, also generating its own High Voltage power.
Our client was looking for an experienced Engineering Manager with expertise across C, I & E Engineering, to lead the large overall CE engineering team, including the expert High Voltage power generation team.
Such candidates are not readily available on the ‘open recruitment market’, so we worked on an exclusive partnership basis with our client and conducted a targeted head hunt search into relevant heavy industrial manufacturing arenas.
We produced a short list of valid candidates for the company’s final assessment process. This included people that were specifically referred to us through our search and one proved to be the successful candidate.
We were able to appoint this high-calibre manager, who offered future senior management potential and who had the additional people leadership skills to further develop this team and quickly add value to the business through his solid technical expertise.
