OnPoint is a specialist logistics company serving some of the leading names within the telecoms and IT industry such as BT, Virgin Media, Fujitsu amongst others.
Recruitment in this field can be challenging due to relevant skill-set required and talent availability.
THE SOLUTION & OUTCOME:
Following a deep-dive into candidate skill-set requirements, we took an alternative approach to the conventional advertising methods; directly approaching candidates with transferrable skills from alternative industries to find the best fit for our client. The first role (Operations Manager) was filled within a two-week period, the second (Assistant Operations Manager) within a four-week period.
** Both candidates promoted to more senior positions (Head of Operations & Operations Manager) within a six-month period.
A word from our client...
“As a business, we wanted to improve the level of experience at managerial level within our General Haulage and Pallet Network. When we approached Bis Henderson to support in placing a couple of new roles, it was clear our Consultant not only had a great understanding of the industry we operate in but also grasped our objectives and requirements as a business.
That level of understanding led to a super quick delivery of a very high-calibre candidate shortlist – which we thought would be a challenge due to the experience the candidates needed to have. Our consultant helped us identify a wider pool of talent, and approached individuals with a transferrable skill-set to help mitigate the challenge we usually face, and as such found candidates that really fitted the bill.
We’re over the moon with the results, we have two excellent individuals who have excelled and improved our business greatly. We would definitely recommend Bis Henderson to other businesses in our sector.”
