BAT Searching for High-Calibre Candidates for DRC

Background

For their operations in DR Congo, British American Tobacco were seeking high-level management profiles across diverse areas of the business. It’s the kind of project that is challenging for a specialism-specific provider to take on, leaving BAT with a choice between engaging multiple agencies and finding one company that could handle a variety of recruitment work as part of a single project. They were seeking DR Congo nationals to work in HR, business processes and finance.

Challenge

  • The high-level finance manager position required a skill set that was unavailable locally
  • BAT, a multinational organisation, required new team members able to work across the regions of their business
  • With three unconnected roles to recruit for, there were no synergies or economies of scale to draw on

Solution

A global headhunt for the right profiles, including a particularly detailed search for the financial manager position.

Outcome

100% success rate with placements for all positions

“We worked really closely with BAT to clearly understand what they needed for the role.”
