Communication is key


It’s no secret that communication is key during the recruitment process, both for the client and consultant, and working collaboratively is necessary to attain top talent on the market.               

Having recently completed an assignment for one of the largest FMCG companies worldwide, this statement couldn’t be more accurate as it was clear from the beginning that you would not find this individual with ease!

1.         1. The Challenge

One of our most long standing clients came to us seeking a Technical Services Engineer. The requirement, on the face it, seemed to imply they were looking for a Technical or Quality Engineer… however under further review it was clear they were seeking an individual with specific qualities; not only technically but one who also demonstrated the personal skills that fitted within the competencies of the company..


2.         2. Our Approach…

Through dedication, we partnered closely with the client throughout the whole process giving them detailed information regarding market knowledge to ensure that the remuneration package would be attractive enough to attract top talent.

Due to the challenge of the role, not only did we scour our internal database but a headhunting approach was initiated and through our consultative approach and specialist knowledge, we were able to deliver a shortlist within 2 weeks despite the high volume recruitment requirements and challenging location…

The screening methods were strengthened as we met with each candidate face to face to ensure that they fit within our client’s requirements. It is clear that collaboration, partnering and listening is vital and our client appreciated the efforts we put in to make sure they secured the right incumbent!


3.         3. The Outcome…

Ripe4 successfully placed the role within the time frame and the candidate chosen matched the salary requirements and the skills and experience necessary.


4.         4. What about now?

The client continues to use us as their preferred supplier and not only this, they have expanded our relationship further afield to Western Europe due to our continued success we have had here in the UK!
