A small Virginia-area manufacturer with a team of 25 struggled to develop a trusting relationship with recruiters but needed to quickly fill a variety of roles due to growth.
We had three roles running concurrently – given this was a small team and these new hires would represent over 10% of the company, culture and work ethic were important to the client over almost all else. The client needed an assembler, a buyer, and a marketing manager to continue growth momentum.
The true challenge here had been previous rocky relationships the client had with recruiters and the time it took to develop a trusting relationship while simultaneously trying to fill three roles. The client shared our 18-month guarantee and the thoroughness of the intakes were early indicators to them that we might actually approach the partnership in a refreshing manner.
Working closely with the client to develop trust, the straightforward searches were geared towards culture and work ethic rather than granular skills. We conducted both passive outreach (especially for the Marketing Manager role) and aggressive advertising (especially for the Assembler role).
With two hires completed in 30 days and the final search completed by Month 3, the company had grown the team by over 10%, was positioned to continue along its aggressive growth trajectory, and (we like to think) rebuilt its trust in the recruiting industry… just a little.
We help our clients save money and hire better with our custom-built searches, 9.9% fee, and 18-month guarantee. If you need to find a partner to work on your searches, contact us. Or, read more recruiting case studies.
“After strong initial pushback, the client hesitantly accepted a phone interview based on the trust we had established with our previous strong submittals. Having that candidate go from initial interview to the client immediately recognizing the fit to the candidate starting one week later was the really fun part of this search.”
