Job Title

Mill Manager

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

Several months

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, given their footprint in the industry, they have many resources at their disposal including job ads, internal recruiting, external recruiting and internal employee referrals.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client had recently announced an expansion at one of their flagship locations to the tune of $600 million dollars.  This meant that they had to consolidate one of their other sites over time. We identified the candidate initially for the project but they soon realized he would be a better fit for the decommissioning of the other mill given his current employment situation and the stage he was at in his career.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate we identified was on the market and seeking other job opportunities. He had successfully retired from his former employer after a fulfilling career and was also waiting out a non-compete he had. The role we placed him in is to last 3 years which matches up perfectly with his eventual plans to retire.
