The challenge:

After centralising its entire supply chain function to Switzerland, this multinational approached Proco Global to find eight candidates across Procurement, Supply Chain Systems & Process Management, Forecast to Schedule and Business Information, Trade Compliance, Domestic Transportation and EHS. 

With new headquarters in Berne, the client sought candidates who were ambitious, entrepreneurial and adventurous. They needed candidates to be absolute experts in their field, with specialist skillsets including in-depth knowledge of the Swiss principle tax structure.

The solution:
Our Process & Chemicals team, working with a dedicated research function across EMEA, was able to provide the client’s recruitment team (made up of three Senior Managers and three HR/Talent Managers) with weekly search reports to share feedback from candidates, provide valuable market information and offer insights into individuals, market trends and competitor benchmarking.

Our results:

With a large internal recruitment team, it was important that information relating to the search was carefully communicated to everyone involved. 

Proco Global performed all first-stage interviews on behalf of the client via Skype, tailoring them to ensure both technical and personal aspects of potential candidates were correctly evaluated.

The client was presented with a formal report of shortlisted candidates, assessing their suitability, affordability, and summarising strengths, weaknesses, motivation and management style. All positions were successfully filled
