Challenge

We were tasked with seeking out a film set medic role for a leading medical events company. Time
was the difficult factor here as the client required quality applicants available for an immediate start,
living within a reasonable commute of the location and with the particular skillset required for what
has the potential to be a challenging role.

Solution

Our consultant, Sue, had worked in the field herself and had a strong understanding of the
personality traits required for the role. The obvious start was to have a look for potential candidates
from our existing talent pool and then to devise an advert to place on the website and social media.
We then worked closely with our client to ensure we found them the best available candidates to
choose from.

Results

The adverts provided an exceptionally strong candidate pool to work from. Sue contacted each
applicant individually for an informal discussion surrounding the role, and from there fed back to the
client so they could decide which candidates they wanted to meet for a formal interview. Five
candidates were put forward for the role, with two progressing to interview and the successful
candidate starting promptly the following week.

Client testimonial

Sue has worked hard securing us the calibre of candidate we requested and has been in touch
throughout the process to give us regular updates. She has replied to any contact we have made
quickly and has a high level of knowledge within the field. We would not hesitate to use Ex-Mil
again.

Candidate testimonial

When I heard about the role I was immediately intrigued as it is using a skillset I would very much
like to build upon. Sue explained the role, and when I met with the client, I felt confident I could do
the job to the best of my abilities. The role is challenging and interesting, I am really enjoying it so
far.

Consultant testimonial

The challenge with this role was getting the right people in place for the client within a very short
timeframe. Throughout the process the client and their full team have worked well with me, sharing
thoughts on each candidate I wanted to send them, keeping me updated on interview progress and
have made my role in the process easy. When I spoke to the successful candidate I knew she
would be ideal for the role as she has the required skills and experience as well as the personality
traits that a medical role would require. Both client and candidate have been fantastic to work with
and I’m pleased we could fill the role swiftly but without compromising on the quality of candidate.
