Our client was recommended to use Zenopa Recruitment by one of their employees because the service we provided to him when he was our candidate was so efficient that when his company then wanted to up-scale, Zenopa came to mind. Our client is a third-party organisation that buy refurbish and then sell old equipment, including Chromatography instruments, using a mass spec technique. They are 45-50 employees large.
Job Spec provided to Albert Baines
The job spec provided to Albert was an experienced engineer within the industry- Central UK.
The candidate pool fell very short for this role, particularly with the salary being under the average rate.
After one week of no luck, Albert reached out to the client and recommended opening the candidate pool up, perhaps looking at an end-user (based in the lab, more of a chemist), but to then train them up.
In one month, Albert placed a Chemist, who has exceeded the client's expectations in quality.
The reason Albert placed over competitors is that he had the market knowledge to understand the salary wasn’t competitive enough for the candidate pool desired, so was able to open it up and find an equivalent match.
Testimonial from the client
"The whole recruitment process has been an absolute pleasure, especially when dealing with professionals that completely understand our field of engineering in the Analytical Science Sector. Most notably, Albert, I found that on every challenge that he far exceeded my expectations, on many occasions he delivered outstandingly and always put forward candidates that were relevant to the skill sets that we required to fulfil our staff vacancies. Both his professionalism on the phone and in exchange emails is remarkable, he is an exceptional member of your organisation and a promotion should be warranted for his efforts."
