VHR is being selected by one of the top notch European based leading-edge technology providers as their recruitment partner
Our client is an European-based company that develops, manufactures, and markets products for the construction, building maintenance, and mining industries, primarily to the professional end-user. Our Client’s subsidiary in Malaysia had grown steadily for the past few years and they have also ventured into the Oil & Gas industry.
VHR has been selected to be one of the recruitment partners to our client back in April 2014 after competing with other giant multi-national headhunting firms to recruit for their “+2” candidates aiming for the succession planning for the Head of Department.
There are certain prerequisites for a +2 candidate:
- Minimum academic qualification is to obtain i.e. at least a Master’s Degree and a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering
- Regional cross country exposures
- Multiple promotions within an organization
- Good business acumen combined with excellent communication and presentation skills
Many candidates have been eliminated along the interview process by our Client due to the shortlisted candidates were not able to pass through the stringent interview process.
Solutions / Discovery
VHR used the headhunting approach to comb the relevant market and shortlisted candidates who were matched with the criteria. VHR then conducted interviews based on the stringent criteria and presented suitable candidates to the Company within the time frame given.
Outcome / Impact
VHR has successfully helped the Company to fill up the +2 candidate in their Oil & Gas segment. They were so satisfied with VHR’s outstanding services that hereafter, they decided to give VHR 2 weeks’ exclusive recruitment for some selected assignments.
VHR eventually successfully closed another two more +2 positions i.e. Regional Business Development Manager and Engineering Manager.
