​With multi-award-winning academic and social spaces, the directorate of Estates and Campus services required reliable and accurate recruitment support to sustain their state-of-the-art facilities following an estate restructure.

The Solution

Focusing on reaching local talent, our specialist team created new campaigns to fulfil the permanent roles of:

  • Mechanical Team Manager

  • Buildings Team Manager

  • Gas Engineer

Whilst also activating an urgent search for an interim Estates Administrator.

By ensuring we understood the brief and the culture of the department, we were able to provide a shortlist of appointable candidates, and every role was placed from our primary talent search.

The Outcome

As a supplier to this department, we are committed to providing them with a dependable service they can trust and be confident in.

Our solutions were accurate and timely, delivering the talent they needed to implement their restructure and we continue to support this dedicated directorate with their ongoing recruitment needs.

“The team quickly established OBU requirements and found a number of applicants who were taken through to interview. The process from initial request to appointment was completed in weeks.

The successful applicants, having recently completed their six-month probation, are beginning to take their teams forward as the department further looks to improve on service delivery through communication, personalisation and consistency in the maintenance service delivery. Venn Group provided excellent communication throughout this project with regular updates as we've moved through the process.”
