Hard to Find Nationalities Key to Vlisco Growth

Background

Vlisco, one of the myriads of African FMCG companies taking advantage of the economic boom, had common difficulties to surmount when entering and growing new regions. When candidates for a given role become harder to find, the impact on time to hire, and ultimately the business can be significant. This was a challenge Vlisco faced, seeking a HR Manager for DR Congo.

Challenge

  • Tough to find DR Congolese HR Managers
  • Need candidates with an international outlook and experience
  • A short time to hire a targeted candidate

Solution

A global search and selection campaign, scouring global talent pool for the right combination of skills, nationality and experience.

Outcome

Success. Happy candidate and happy Vlisco!

“When you know you’ve found the right candidate, this is enormously satisfying work.”

The major additional benefit of a global search, on top of being able to look more widely for the right person, is that bringing in internationally-based candidates provides your company with a global outlook that can be very important for companies with global operations or aspirations. As a recruiter with a tough brief like Vlisco’s, when you know you’ve found the right candidate, this is enormously satisfying work.
