Challenge

Ex-Mil Recruitment was approached by the company who had been trying to source a candidate to join their team through other recruitment companies but with no success. Although they were getting CVs and interviewing candidates on a ad hoc basis, it quickly became clear that other agencies simply didn’t fully understand what they were looking for.

The company finally came across Ex-Mil Recruitment and within a very short period of time, we were able to understand exactly the type of candidates they needed for this role.

Solution

Once we understood the needs of the client in regard to this particular role, we initiated a search of our database, as well as advertising the role online and were quickly able to create a shortlist of potential and interested candidates.

Results

We submitted three candidates to the client and they chose to interview two of them. After this, there was one clear stand-out candidate and the company were happy to progress to making an offer.

Client testimonial

Feed back from the client was very positive. They wished they found us earlier, as it could have saved three months of very frustrating and fruitless searching with the other companies, who told them that these sort of candidates were very few and far between. With two more roles to recruit for later in the year, we have already been asked to keep an eye out for potential candidates for them in advance.

Candidate testimonial

The successful candidate was over the moon with the new role as it allows her to join a progressive and forward-thinking company that will give her the opportunity to use all of her skills and abilities as well as continued career development.

Consultant testimonial

It was a very quick turnaround from taking the job requirements to setting up interviews and the candidate starting the role. The biggest hurdle was trying to correct the impression that all recruitment companies are the same, and that all we did was send out CVs hoping something would stick. That’s just not how we work and hopefully this success proves that!
