When an ambitious global fintech told us they were having trouble attracting niche skills to their Czech Republic base we knew we had the capabilities to help them.
4Finance are Europe’s fastest growing online and mobile consumer lending group and they operate across the globe. However, to meet their growth targets they had a pressing requirement to bring in Java software developers.
With local competition fierce this was proving to be a problem. But we found a way to deliver the skills that would ensure 4F met their expansion goals.
"BPS World came across as an open-minded company who always managed to stick to their commitments. It was a real pleasure to be their client."
Vadim Lysenko - Head of Software Development, 4Finance
Even huge businesses with bright futures and clear pathways need to adapt and refine their people strategies periodically in order to gain a competitive advantage.
Despite being the UK’s largest water-only supplier Affinity Water fell into that category.
Threats were being posed by great change within their industry. However, our skill and expertise ensured Affinity didn’t lose their edge.
"During a time of great business change, BPS offered a professional, punctual and friendly recruitment service.
As well as sourcing a large number of candidates BPS introduced several best practices to recruitment, including the structure of interviews and a robust scoring mechanism of candidates. This allowed for a fair and in-depth assessment of candidates as well as making Affinity Water seem more professional to prospective employees."
Andrew McIlwraith, Programme Manager - Affinity Water
Huge organisations remain at the top of their game by constantly evaluating their processes to ensure they're always one step ahead of the competition.
That’s certainly the case with the M+W Group. They enjoy heritage relationships dating back over 100 years and have demonstrated their engineering excellence with project wins including a £150m Waste to Energy facility, major Nuclear Decommissioning projects and a £26m Cell Therapy Facility to name a few. However, while M+W are a thriving construction specialist, we still found ways to increase their attraction and onboarding processes and make their recruitment strategy more effective.
"BPS' multi-pronged approach to talent management has not only delivered positive results, it's also helped us further enhance our position in a competitive marketplace."
Jacquie Burgess, Head of UK HR – M+W Group
A global market leader will always have to juggle a number of spinning plates.
And when your primary business is global mobility it’s essential to have the right processes in place to ensure a smooth service for your customers. Improving those was the key objective of one of our clients. Santa Fe Relocation Services manage over 60,000 international moves annually, specialising in areas such as local and international moving, work permits and corporate relocation.
But they needed skilled experts in project recruitment and talent attraction to align their hiring practices and enable successful delivery.
"Working with Santa Fe is a true partnership. We’re extremely proud of the quality of candidate and results we’ve delivered while the introduction of the Accelerate Graduate Programme has really helped to enhance the Santa Fe employer brand."
Tim Ward – Group Account Director
Attracting and retaining the right talent to grow your business can be difficult enough. But as our client found out, when your recruitment processes aren’t aligned and your desired targets are being hoovered up by competitors, the challenge can seem even more daunting.
4Finance are Europe’s fastest growing online and mobile consumer lending group and they operate across the globe. However, this ambitious organisation needed to refine some of their processes to maintain an upward trajectory. Their aims were simple: consolidate their position, further international expansion and launch a consistent product line across each location.
"BPS World are great recruiters, not only in terms of the calibre of candidates they find but also in the amount of work they put into finding them. I was particularly impressed at the range of candidates presented for our more complex roles created due to this ever-evolving industry. BPS World presented high-quality candidates for every single role, many of whom are still with us now."
Lisa Pimlett. HR Business Partner - 4Finance
We’ve been working with Infosys Consulting (formerly Lodestone Management Consultants) since 2013. Infosys is a global leader in technology, outsourcing and next generation services.
Against a backdrop of global skills shortages, uncovering niche talent has become an art form. It requires a well-connected network, speed of thought and the ability to act decisively.
But most importantly you need a great understanding of the brief and your client. When Infosys have needed to find technical expertise, we’ve provided them with rare skills in different locations on a global scale.
"BPS have worked efficiently and expertly to deliver both permanent and contract candidates to our projects throughout Asia. They have been quick to react when we have urgent, ‘hard to find’ requirements and they have been successful in providing creative solutions to local talent shortages."
