A unique placement with one of key Engineering clients in the Dorset area!
The position of Project Engineer within their Marine Department had been a live requirement but then placed on hold due to a lack of suitable candidates. Our client informed us they if we find anyone suitable then to let them know…
Our bespoke search and in-depth knowledge of our client allowed us to source a candidate fitting exactly what the client required;
- Project Engineering experience
- Marine and Oil & Gas Industry background
- Degree Qualified with PLC control systems knowledge
- Most importantly a good culture fit!
One major problem, the candidate already had an offer of employment with another company! The glimmer of hope we had was this position would be local and not require relocation unlike the other offer!
We sent the CV across to the client and followed up with a call to give further information on the candidate which our clients were very receptive to. Key message was if we didn’t move quickly then he will have to accept the other offer!
Our HR and recruitment contacts championed this with the Hiring Managers encouraging them to organise an interview straight away & an offer of employment followed within 24 hours..
We credit our client for the pace in which they responded this candidate’s personal circumstances, we see this too often when clients lose out on the ideal candidates because they are unable to flex from their usual process.
We offer a full consultancy service along with sourcing suitable candidates and as a result, our client have secured someone who will be able to give them a significant advantage in the area of Project Engineering.
