Our client had a key member of the design staff, with a very long record of continuous service, due to retire within two months. His extensive skills and knowledge base had been built up over many years and it was proving difficult for them to find the right person to step into his shoes.
Upon becoming aware of the upcoming vacancy, our MD, Antony Cox and one of our senior recruiters visited the client’s site the very same day and met with the Engineering Manager to get a full technical brief on the requirement. Our client provided an in-depth brief on the technical abilities needed and prioritised those that were essential for the role. We were able to offer advice as to the availability of skills in the market, as well as current salary expectations.
Alongside this visit, considerable time was also spent examining their substantial product portfolio, as well as looking around the entire factory to get the full picture.
Our experience, combined with the knowledge gained on-site, enabled us to substantially revise and improve the client’s job specification. This ensured that we could search for and attract the right candidates, rapidly and accurately.
Armed with a brief we knew to be both accurate and realistic, we were able to search our range of databases and networks to work-up a short-list of potential candidates. Two CVs were submitted and both were selected for interview.
Without even seeing the second candidate, the first candidate that attended was offered the position, as the match attained was so close to the requirement.
“We had not used ProTech before but they soon found suitable candidates for the position we had. We were given a single point of contact, who throughout, took the time to discuss and understand our needs.
ProTech obviously filters through the candidates which means we get to see the right people. This meant that within a short period we had filled our position.
I would be more than happy to deal with ProTech again as they are a pleasure to deal with.”
Sean, the successful candidate:
“I have just finished my third day at work and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for such a smooth and professional operation. I have come across many agencies in the last 12 years, and I have to say, it has been a real pleasure to deal with yourself and ProTech.
From the very first telephone conversation, the real care about whether I would be happy in the position or whether it was the right position for me was apparent. I could see that you clearly were trying to match the right person to the right job and that is a real quality in any agent or agency these days when most just try to close the deal whether right or wrong.
So thank you again for making this move a very smooth transition for me. I will not hesitate to recommend you or ProTech in the future.”
