We boosted Wincor Nixdorf’s capability when they needed it most. By understanding the finer points of their specialist needs, we were able to pinpoint then screen likely candidates, leading to successful placements. Ensuring that present and consequently future projects were a success!
Wincor Nixdorf needed bespoke product trained resources and they needed them fast! Their project delivery deadline for a tier 1 global bank was rapidly approaching and many other projects were dependent on its completion. With limited access to such talent - Wincor Nixdorf asked RDF to help them find the IT specialists that they required.
We began with a meeting. It was essential that we fully understood Wincor Nixdorf’s products and very specific requirements in order to source the right candidates. As with all of our IT recruitment, our industry knowledge helps us to fully understand the roles we fill – in many cases writing bespoke screen tests to help us screen candidates and quickly eliminate unsuitable applicants. From our meeting and previous associations we would then be able to select candidates based on a personal fit (company ethos and culture) as well as technical suitability.
With such a big demand for scarce talent, we knew our search would need to be exhaustive and imaginative. We pursued referrals from every avenue, used social media tools like LinkedIn, employed headhunting techniques and tapped up our internal technical teams for leads. Upon selecting potential candidates our screening process provided an efficient system for identifying the most suitable people. In addition, we invested in the partnership by fully training recruits in using Wincor Nixdorf’s products.
We provided a unique solution to Wincor Nixdorf, they can tap into our flexible resource pool or request for us to go to market and recruit permanent or contract staff on their behalf; either way Wincor Nixdorf is able to call on us at anytime knowing that we will provide fully trained resources whenever and wherever they need it.
“The project was implemented on-time and without disruption to others. Time, effort and costs were reduced as a result of outsourcing this work to RDF. Wincor Nixdorf appreciates RDF Group’s services, as it enables us to focus on our time critical customer’s projects. We look forward to working with the RDF Group on our up and coming projects.”
