A few examples of international recruitment procedures we have guided for our clients recently.
Axxor – Product- and processtechnologist
Axxor is an international company with a large market share in Europe. They produce paper honeycomb in Zwolle, Poland and the USA. Their honeycomb is used as core material in the automotive- and furniture industries. Axxor was looking for fresh talent as a Product- and Processtechnologist, who would be working on several projects involving product development and -improvement. Because we didn’t want to limit our search to just Dutch candidates, but also wanted to explore available international candidates for this position, we decided together to also publish the vacancy in Spain and Romania. An extensive procedure followed, starting with several rounds of videoconferencing. A selected few candidates was invited to Zwolle for a varied programme in which they got to know the company and the people working at Axxor. The procedure was successfully concluded by hiring an enthusiastic professional from Spain, who is emigrating to the Netherlands for this role.
HiTec Food Systems – Field Service Engineer
HiTec Food Systems BV in Zwolle invents, develops and produces custom made stainless steel solutions for the food industry. The company was in search of engineers to build and maintain these machines. Because of the current shortage of this specific knowledge and experience on the Dutch labor market, we decided together to also publish this vacancy in Romania. By searching in this broader manner our client gets a better overview of the available candidates in the current job market.
Mefiag – Senior Area Manager Southern Europe
Mefiag® Filters & Pumps in Heerenveen is part of the global CECO Environmental corporation. Mefiag® Filters & Pumps is a world leader in the development, manufacturing and supply of corrosion-resistant filters and pumps used primarily in the plating, anodizing and metal finishing industries. Mefiag needed a senior area manager to analyze the southern European markets for them and establish robust distribution channels in the area. They were looking for a real relations manager, capable of laying down the right groundwork, building on this in a focused and structured way and translating technically complex subject matter into plain language. Obviously, the candidate had to have an excellent command of both English and Spanish. The vacancy was posted both in the Netherlands and in Spain and after a successful process (starting with video conferences, followed by live interviews in the Netherlands) a Spanish candidate was hired.
