For this particular assignment, an existing division within this Automotive OEM, who had relocated to a new site in the Midlands, approached Apex Recruitment in December 2015, following a referral from another department manager. They had an urgent need for a contract workforce to support with completion of a delayed project.
The division’s Director required 32 additional staff over and above the existing permanent workforce to enable the department to ensure the delivery of bespoke, personalised vehicles with special paint with high specification finishes that showcase the best of our client’s model range including high performance options, ultra-luxury products and limited-edition collector models to their customers.
As an Engineering Service provider, we are renowned for building and nurturing relationships with clients by staying acutely aware of the client’s business needs and having the unique ability to be flexible with these changes.
In nurturing such a relationship, we have been able to ensure continuity of service with our client, resulting in very little business interruption. Our client has a dedicated team of Apex professionals supporting their account with a full understanding of project deliverables and cost controls. Due to our ability of identifying the highest quality of candidates for the roles our client has maintained low attrition rates of personnel. Furthermore, our ability to uphold the supply of high volumes of staff with exceptional quality against stringent deadlines has further cemented our position as trusted and respected advisor to the client.
As always, this project was treated with the high standards and practices which we set and adhere to. On receiving our objectives and project deadlines for this assignment, we compiled a strategic plan outlining our strengths, network and capability in the niche area of our client. In doing so, we once again successfully met and exceeded all goals and expectations.
How we demonstrated this:
- Our ability to source ‘hard to find’ skill sets in a difficult market, through networking, headhunting and a mix of traditional and innovative sourcing approaches
- Our strong relationships with the business/hiring managers and the in-house onboarding team
- Apex’s existing in-depth knowledge of their business, culture and brand values
- Specific emphasis on the promotion of the client organisation
We also demonstrated our ability to supply the right people, with the right skills, at the right time, by delivering on their requirements throughout the application process. Despite the client’s project requirements increasing mid-way through the programme by nearly 50% for output, our team adapted efficiently to these changes.
Following Apex's successful project delivery, we continue to share an enviable client relationship with workshop teams and both organisations enjoy a mutually beneficial partnership.
- Apex received excellent feedback from the client on meeting their requirements on time
- Our client has requested our support in a new project delivery
- Apex continues to provide support to multiple areas of the business
