How can we help you?

You know you need the best professional but here’s the problem:

  • You need them fast. The project is not waiting and operations can’t stop.
  • You’re just not getting the quality of candidates you need. Surely there are better people out there that are available? Have you covered the market?
  • Will the person fit and stay? That is a very serious risk since the cost of hiring the wrong person costs so much in terms of lost time, retraining, demobilizing… never mind the cost of fixing mistakes!
  • The recruitment process takes so long and is inconsistent. Suppliers don’t seem to understand our needs. Internal processes cause unnecessary delays and then you may have to start all over again since the candidate was lost to a competitor.

If you are a direct hiring manager, internal recruiter or HR Manager you will be well aware of the above challenges for Project, IT, Engineering & Operational roles.

Imagine you solved those challenges. What would that mean to you personally, your stress levels, sense of satisfaction and your career? What would that mean to your business?

  • What if you could significantly increase speed to hire for these key professionals for the business-critical roles in projects, maintenance and solution sales?
  • What if you could access the top 15% of Project, Engineering, Construction or Operational talent that you need?
  • What if you could mitigate the risk of the wrong hire? What if the cost of hiring became irrelevant because the value your new hire brought gave incredible return on investment?
  • What if your star players and solution sales executives not only exceeded their objectives but attracted other like-minded star players to your company.
  • What if you had a hiring partnership and trust relationship with experts in your filed that understood you and your company? What if you could trust them to deal with senior managers in your business and facilitated a speedy, consistent and high quality delivery of talent?
