After struggling to fill an urgent vacancy, a leading online grocer approached Proco Associates to find a Quality Manager. As it was a business-critical role and had been vacant for two months, so needed filling immediately.
The role required a combination of quality management experience in a fresh ingredients environment and high-level business acumen. A highly technical background, leadership capabilities, and an entrepreneurial drive were also core requirements for the chosen candidate.
After the initial client brief, we quickly reacted to the urgency of the assignment and mapped all potential candidates within the local market.
A longlist of 13 candidates was identified and screened. Five were then interviewed in person by Proco Associates and three candidates were shortlisted for the client.
All three candidates progressed to a physical interview with a group of client stakeholders and the chosen candidate was offered the role within 11 days of the initial brief, demonstrating our ability to deliver with speed and efficiency against a challenging brief.
