Executive Search

Case Study

Background

Our client, a major player in the gas plant technology and construction industry, was planning to expand its Project Execution and Construction Leadership capability across key hubs in France, Germany, United States and China. 

Challenge

A total of nine executive hires were planned in Construction, Projects, Business Development and Quality. Our client attempted to hire through a global executive search firm, but had no placements after six months of searching. 

  • Lack of employer brand awareness
  • No coordination of a global search campaign
  • No strong competition for the best candidates
  • No understanding of competitor rewards

Airswift Solution

Airswift was selected to support the project and delivered a suite of workforce solutions, including Talent Acquisition, Global Mobility and Consulting.

Airswift provided a Talent Mapping solution, which provided competitor market intelligence (competitor rewards), as well as locations and capability of the global talent pool. Airswift ensured a clear and consistent communication of our client's employment brand to over 500 candidates and shared all of the research to allow for discounted, subsequent hires.

Results

  • All nine roles were filled within eight weeks of project initiation
  • Six additional hires were made from Airswift's research
  • Airswift was awarded future projects in Europe, Americas and CIS
