How We Worked
The client was looking to hire a number of professionals at the base in mainland Europe and came to Earthstaff for assistance. As the company are one a the major players with the Oil and Gas space, we positioned them as an employer of choice. In order to resource these candidates quickly and ensuring they were what the company were looking for, we undertook a solutions driven approach. We were to deliver professionals with the skill sets that the client was looking for using our vast pool of candidates and with our referral network. After delivering a strong shortlist of candidates, we made our first placement with the business. The following months saw us replicate this success and make six placements in total.
Following on from our success, we were granted exclusively to work on a couple of Geophysics roles for the company. The roles were to be based in a different location to our initial placements.
With such a prestigious client, we wanted to work as close as possible to them. We assigned a single point of contact to the client who acted as account manager. This enabled the client to be able to reach us directly at all times of the day in case they needed to update us with any information. We also held a weekly conference call with their Hiring Manager, who kept us updated with things on their end and to assess our progress.
To ensure we knew the type of candidates the client were looking for we arranged to meet some current international employees. This gave us a detailed insight into the cultural dynamics of the company, allowing us to provide a better, more accurate service to the client. After this, we developed a client specific competency based screening process to guarantee we were supplying the perfect candidates to the client. We also were heavily involved with each of our candidates, guiding them through the whole recruitment process. This also involved helping candidates secure accommodation and educating them on local tax and labour laws.
