The Brief:

To address global challenges posed by infectious diseases and other major health concerns, our client significantly expanded its operations in recent years. The increased allocation of resources was concentrated primarily across its three major sites in Scotland. However, due to substantial growth, Page Resourcing had to deploy teams and resources globally.

The Solution:

We appointed a dedicated project director as a single point of contact between Page Resourcing and the key stakeholders within the client’s organisation. A 100% dedicated team was deployed locally at the sites to work as an extension of the client’s recruitment function.  Page Resourcing also led all talent attraction including a large scale PR campaign and administration working within our client's ATS. The Page Resourcing project manager chaired weekly steering group calls to update on progress and strategy to source hard to find candidates.

Our project manager and relationship director worked with the client to design and execute services covering candidate generation and attraction strategy, candidate assessment centres interview planning and onboarding. This put our dedicated resourcing team in an excellent position to ensure we attracted top talent and provided a first-rate candidate experience.

  • We designed, organised and implemented a high volume and streamlined candidate journey
  • We built a dedicated client landing page embedded in the client’s careers page to enhance the candidate experience and ensure all applications were captured and then transferred to the clients ATS accordingly
