This great company had an exciting opportunity for a Radio System Maintenance Engineer (RSME). The person successful in this role was to be responsible for providing radio system maintenance of the company’s systems and 3rd party related systems throughout the UK, Europe, Middle East, South America and Asia Pacific regions.

Solution

Looking at the requirements of our client, the focus was clear and the task would involve looking for a trained technician with a wide range of systems and engineering knowledge and qualifications with some Operator skills of RF, Sat Comms fiber / WIFI and field engineering as well as some knowledge of CCTV and PMR and DMR Radio knowledge

With this in mind, I looked at Ex Royal Signals and on our data base for Engineers and operators and also on LinkedIn and through making contact with my network.

Results

After sending six CVs to the client, three candidates were selected for interview, and one of our candidates – an Ex Royal Signals operator – was offered the role due to his excellent skills and experience.

Client testimonial

All went well, Warren (Ex-Mil Recruitment) covered all the bases with the Job Description and then sent me the relevant candidates, after talking to Warren and going through the CV’s, I picked 3 candidates out 6 sent for interview, one was done by Telephone and the others face to face in London.

At each stage from start to finish, Warren kept me informed and the candidates were given the correct information -Timings, Location, Companies information and point of contact. Happy with the outcome and the candidates interviewed. Ex-Mil Recruitment had the 2 Top candidates, it was just a shame we only had one role available at the time.

I am continuing to be flexible with my approach and adapt to the role requirements and the candidates. I’ve also got a solid process to follow and check with candidates that they have received the information each time and review the job role and make sure they are happy. This was a great result.
