Company Description

Job Title

Plant Manager

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

3 Weeks

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, Job ads and internal recruiting sources/referrals

Why was this a real problem for the client?

The existing plant manager had recently put in his resignation because he had to relocate closer to home for family reasons.  Given their geography, it was tough to find people that wanted move there.  This candidate was only 1 state away and they moved very quickly because they knew his skillset was in high demand.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate was on the market as of 3/2020 due to some changes in leadership philosophy. Soon after, COVID 19 was here and it stalled his job search for several months. We had him interview at 5 different places until we introduced him to this client where they scooped him up quickly.
