How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

2 weeks

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, they have a robust Human Resources team and an endless job marketing budget.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client’s location was located in a very rural area in the south where there were only 4 direct competitors. No one wanted to relocate to the area for this job so we had to find someone local. The role was open due to a promotion so that internal candidate couldn’t move up until we found their replacement.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate we placed spent his entire 30-year career in the same market as my client but at a different company. His organization was going through some manufacturing and cultural challenges that were not going away. He felt that if he didn’t see this out, he would regret at least not trying. We got him a substantial bump in pay plus bonus potential and the opportunity to potentially end his career somewhere new.
