How did we do?

At the time of TechNET’s engagement to the client we were initially involved in sourcing a hybrid mix, which spanned the gap between Actuary’s and technology through the business. TechNET were extremely successful in supporting a small number of initial roles, and when a larger project was released TechNET were well placed to be able to understand the complexity involved, and more importantly to deliver resource.

The project was part of a global IT development change program, designed to build a Wrap platform and replace current software solutions globally.

TechNET was engaged as the sole supplier for all permanent and contract resource required, which was completed over an 8 month period. From the outset TechNET achieved a CV to interview ratio of over 80%, and of those interviewed over 50% went through to offer / acceptance.

TechNET achieved this success through taking the time to fully engage with the individuals driving the change program forward. A number of well-placed meetings allowed us to comprehensively understand the deliverables and key milestones that needed to be achieved, and furthermore enabled us to strategise a recruitment structure to support our client, and more importantly to hit their project deadlines in budget.

What happened next?

Since our initial engagement in 2003, TechNET has established itself as one of the core suppliers across all of the IT divisions. Coupled with a drive as a “project focused” agency, we can be relied upon to take on volume recruitment in extremely tight timeframes, and still maintain the high quality expected.

Over the last 8 years TechNET has opened offices in London (2010) Milton Keynes (2005) and Cheltenham (2010) to further support our customer operations in these core areas.
