How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

They reached out to us right away for our specialized industry expertise.

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

No, they do not.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client had parted ways with a long-time employee who ran the ship. This created the need for them to engage us and find some new leadership for the site. They needed someone to add some polish to the facility in terms of operational excellence, the develop of SOP’s and protocols, along with maintaining a very engaging work culture.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate that we placed was recently on the market due to a position elimination, which is you frequently see in the industry. He had relocated many times throughout his career and the opportunity we presented his way was a local one. He was ready to lay down some roots in the area and this allowed him to maintain his household and keep his kids in their current school system. They made a competitive offer plus bonus potential and upside.
