European IT Service Company in Leeds

German Speaking Sales Executive Recruitment Project

Our client are part of a large European group who are a leading provider of IT solutions, working in partnership with major computing companies. They work with business clients all across Europe, from Germany to France and the Nordics.

Our assignment

To recruit 2 German speaking business development executives, and 1 French executive.

Our approach

Firstly myself and candidate manager Karen met with their Head of HR at our Leeds office back in November. We talked about the client’s recruitment process, what he was looking to gain from working with us, and his experience recruiting for their German speaking roles in the past. We hadn’t seen the job spec before the meeting but that wasn’t at all an issue. I was able to spend 45 minutes talking about the positions and building an attractive, custom job description.

The recruitment process

  • Firstly we set an interview date during the meeting for all the positions, ensuring a streamlined, quick process to ensure not losing any strong candidates.
  • We then interviewed candidates face to face at our office in Leeds, sometimes working late to meet candidates out of office hours.
  • I managed the all-important offer stages, making sure offers could be accepted, whilst ensuring both the company and the candidates were perfectly happy.

What results did we help create?

After setting an interview date for 2 weeks ahead we were able to successfully find three very suitable, locally based candidates over a three-month period. We managed to find the right skills at the specified salary budget, guiding the company to make sure there were no rejected offers.
