Client Case Studies

CV Bay was chosen as a staffing supplier to a new project that required an increase of headcount of 100 engineers UK wide over a 6 month period.
We already work with this client on a contingent basis, so have an in depth understand of their business due recruiting for a number of roles successfully in the past. We have visited a number of depots visiting the managers and also spent a day out in the field with an engineer on the job.
We were chosen to deliver to this project due to our already excellent track record and our in depth understanding of their needs and culture, which meant we could respond quickly and accurately.
CV Bay discussed at length the specifications for each sites requirement and listened carefully to the managers difficulties about the problems they had faced historically.
We were then able to devise an in-depth recruitment strategy to target only the skilled individuals that client required. With our solid background in recruiting specifically for this industry we set to work interviewing suitable candidates by means of networking and drawing upon our extensive database of candidates within this field.
CV Bay sourced and placed 86 motivated and experienced permanent engineers within 4 months until the project was put on hold due to a change of need by the customer. Our interview-to-placement ratio for this project were of 2:1, with only 2 candidates not starting due to internal delays.
The whole process for each candidate from the initial interview to the Engineers first day of work took an average of 6 weeks.
