What was the brief?
Gerber Technology were looking to hire a UK based International Sales Director. They were looking for someone with an Engineering background, with a high energy and experience of managing people. Gerber Technology did not have a list of donor companies, and instead utilised the expertise of our internal specialists within the Engineering sector to align companies for this role, and find candidates.
What was our process?
After our internal specialists had drawn up a list of suitable companies to use as a source, they began shortlisting candidates. Five candidates were interviewed by Gerber Technology and three were selected as favourites. Of the three potential candidates one was ruled out by Gerber Technology, and it was narrowed down to a final two candidates.
What was the outcome?
Both candidates were flown out to Gerber’s Canadian office to meet members of the team and the stronger candidate was selected. However, Gerber Technology noted that both candidates were viable options to hire. The candidate has now been with the company for a number of months and has successfully integrated into the business.
