The client

A major aerospace company based in the north of England.

The challenge

To manage an extensive recruitment drive, helping our client find 17 permanent Stress and Design engineers. The assignment meant that we had to present a number of credible candidates, delivering on both quality and quantity.

In addition, our client was in a hurry. They had been disappointed when another headhunter had made an unsuccessful attempt to tackle the task. The delay in finding suitable candidates had created a serious risk to the client’s project.

Our market intelligence flagged up that many capable Stress and Design engineers tended to seek contract work, so identifying promising candidates willing to switch to permanent positions would also be a challenge. We were also aware that the job location might act as a barrier for some potential candidates.

The solution

Capital International were engaged as the sole recruitment agency. We were able to approach the market discreetly, taking care to uphold the client’s reputation. The first placement was made within three months and ten positions have been filled on time and in budget.

The approach

We worked long and hard to ensure success. Networking produced solid leads and discreet targeted headhunting secured several employees for the aerospace company. Not content with tried and tested methods, we launched a new referral scheme, tailored to this specific requirement.

The outcomes

  • Our client recruited 10 engineers into permanent specialised roles within their aerospace company via Capital.
  • We were able to restore this client’s faith in the recruitment process by fulfilling their brief whilst saving them time and money.
  • We targeted candidates intelligently, focusing on those who would consider transferring from contract work to permanent posts.
  • We introduced a referral system, which produced impressive results, enabling us to present numbers of highly-skilled professionals for selection.
