Precision recruitment for a highly technical role

Posted on October 2023

Data wave
Iconic brand Virgin Media O2 are reimagining connectivity, and their commitment to upgrading the UK requires the best expertise in the country. Following their team expansion in Technology infrastructure, they required a Senior Full-Stack Developer to join this highly skilled department.

Priorities supported:

  • By contacting all agencies on the PSL, the client hoped to saturate the tech market in order to reach the highly skilled individuals required

  • An expert in GCP and NodeJS was needed with no room for compromise

  • Retain an individual with the experience and confident ability to add value to the organisation

Experience applied:

  • Our consultant’s in-depth market knowledge and experience meant they immediately knew the individual he wanted to contact about the role

  • Following a successful briefing and confirmation of commitment from the first-choice candidate, our consultant continued shortlisting to maintain due diligence in securing the best applicant

  • A final shortlist of three candidates was presented to the client within a day

Outcomes achieved:

  • Our primary applicant was exclusively chosen for interview out of all the CV’s presented by the PSL agencies

  • Appreciating the importance of a rehearsed interview to convey confidence and expertise, our consultant coached the candidate on pre-interview best practice to ensure he was clear-minded and relaxed

  • The candidate was offered the role after the final interview, following a one-month long recruitment process; the trust engendered between our consultant and candidate provided peace of mind to the applicant that this was a credible opportunity and the delay did not reflect the client’s interest
