Time is of the Essence

75% of procurement placement were made from the Value Match network

Challenge

Our customer required facilities management, professional services, and IT category management capability to support several forthcoming major projects with EU Directive experience and had been unsuccessful in attracting permanent resources with the desired capability and experience.

Solution

Due to the urgency of requirements Value Match used a combination of approaches to meet the challenge:

  • Ensured the customer requirements and job description more accurately reflected the customers operational needs and ensuring a better match with potential candidate experience
  • Using the extensive Value Match network of accredited procurement specialists to reduce time to fill roles and to access a broader and higher quality of potential candidates
  • Used the Value Match network to pro-actively identify other suitable candidates
  • Directly targeted interim resource we felt may be looking for permanent roles in the future to provide customer continuity and meet the project timescales
Results
  1. 75% of placements were made from the Value Match network within 2 months of receiving the customer brief
  2. Provided short term interim solution to ensure customer operational requirements were met, with several interims converted to permanent during the project
  3. Client saved over £50k in a 12-month period when compared to prior rates paid to other agencies
