Case Study: Ex-Mil Recruitment places candidate with major road resurfacing client
October 3, 2018 Case Studies
We were approached to source 5 Roadmaster pothole repair operators
Job title: Roadmaster Operator
Location: UK Wide
Sector: Road Maintenance
Duration of search: One month
Consultant name: Lee Spiers
The client had been looking to find new Roadmaster operators to be employed on their newly acquired contracts in the UK. This client had used us before and our candidate’s willingness to work away was a major factor here, as they needed candidates who were willing to be away from home Monday- Friday.
We were contacted to secure Ex Military candidates with the relevant driving skills and technical background quickly, as the client had won contracts throughout the UK. We quickly established the closest military leavers profile that matched this role, and ensured they shared the clients vision and values.
The client then met with our recommended candidate and found that his skills aligned well with the job spec, and he enjoyed the diversity of working away during the week. This was refreshing to the client.
We have used Ex-Mil in the past, with good results. We are based overseas, and needed to fulfil personnel to new contracts. They provided a number of excellent candidates that we put through our training, and took up the role.
I found searching for a specialist driving role difficult, but Ex Mil opened up the door to a new and interesting career. At the same time, they offered longer term promotion prospects within this sector.
It was very important to my client, that any candidates were happy to be based away during the week as to avoid any premature turnover. Being the prime qualifying factor for the role, I found candidates who actively looked for such roles. I based other criteria around this, giving the client a solid candidate to train, with this concern deleted.
