Success Story in Production & Operations Recruitment
One challenging search was for a manufacturer of hand-cast concrete products, specifically interior and exterior architectural accents such as for fireplace surrounds, tiling and outdoor fire pits. Our client was a growing progressive business with a great reputation and a high profile market. They were seeking a Production Coordinator to bring science to their processes: to lead a group of craftsmen and work closely with the sales team to support the growing demand.
With the company staffed with talented and creative tradesmen, the client was lacking a production manager to bring discipline to the craft. Since the business was in a very niche market, the client was open to candidates coming from different industries. This was a new position with an undefined profile therefore numerous candidates could have been considered. The challenge was to narrow down the options and find an individual with the best combination of experience and skill.
Kevin Leh, Operations Recruiter, found a candidate who had the perfect mix of science and craft in his experience. The individual was a carpenter by trade with project management experience in a large construction company. He also had direct experience with production and quality control of pre-cast concrete products. The client hired our candidate almost immediately.
