​Client: An international construction & engineering business with operations across Europe and projects typically valued in excess of €500m

Industry: Advanced Facility Construction

Roles: Project team including Project Manager, Engineers, Planners, and Commercial staff

Core Talent Specialist Team: International Construction

Situation/Challenge

To provide a tailored solution to their recruitment challenges in Scandinavia at very short notice

This business had not actively recruited in the region previously and approached Core Talent about scaling up a key project for them

This included providing a core project team including Project Manager, Engineers, Planners, and Commercial staff with experience on similar projects and a willingness to work overseas

Solution/Process

A meeting was set up between the Clients’ Directors and the Core Talent International Construction team, to assess scope of works and understand the most important aspects and overcome challenges facing the recruitment process.

A full scope of work, including job specs and person profiles, was taken and a bespoke Recruitment Plan was put in place to provide the transparency and cooperative approach needed to work in-country and source the quality personnel needed to deliver this project 

Candidates were sourced, screened and met. Interviews were set up within 3 working days with the first hire taking place in less than 7 working days

Outcome/Results

The most important and urgent positions on the project (including Project Manager and Lead Engineer) were sourced within 2 weeks and the remaining team was on-site within 6 weeks

The project was resourced successfully with quality personnel across the board and to the end-client’s timeline

The client has since offered Core Talent exclusivity on future projects in the region
