Engineering Case Study

Posted on 15th May, 2015

A large scale Engineering firm in Lancashire approach us with the remit of delivering eight new permanent placements in a four week period.

Our client is one of the world’s leading companies supplying products and services in the environmental technology sector. They came to us looking for regional sales executives, engineers, CAD designers a project manager and a health and safety manager.

The ideal candidates would need proven previous experience in their fields, particularly within the clients background. Cultural fit was also going to be important– candidates with a professional attitude, commercially aware and able to build rapport would do well.

We proposed an exclusive permanent recruitment project, with a clearly outlined candidate attraction policy to feed our client’s talent pool.

We set about reviewing CV’s, screening candidates and interviewing a number face-to-face. After assessing their abilities and determining cultural fit, we presented a shortlist to the client. After a series of interviews and deliberations the client found all their new member of staff leaving a very happy client.

The Results:

  • All eight roles were filled
  • Investment of time by our client’s hiring managers reduced from 85 hours to 25 to make eight placements
  • Costs managed through a clear rewards-based agreement
  • All candidates received feedback on the day of the interview


Essential Employment accurately listened and understood our requirements and were true to their word of not sending a pile of CV’s. On paper all of the candidates they put forward had something to offer and were worth considering. My experience of other agencies is sadly quite the opposite. Your help was much appreciated and for once I felt that a recruitment consultant was an additional resource to our HR operation – Managing Director
