Global pharmaceutical and healthcare company

Background

A global pharmaceutical and healthcare company was looking to expand their team in the Asia Pacific region across a three-year period. As part of this expansion plan, our client decided to establish an Asia Pacific Business Service Centre (BSC) in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. They wanted to work closely with an international recruiter who could assist them not just with the implementation, but also as an on-going partner.

Approach

We established a dedicated team of consultants to support the campaign. Our strategy included:  

  • Online advertising across the Malaysian job boards and PageGroup’s Asian websites
  • Conducting a thorough database search
  • Proactive networking and candidate referrals

Feedback was given to clients and candidates within 24 hours of any interview. We also made it a point to work very closely with the company’s hiring managers to ensure that candidates were a strong cultural fit.

Results

As a premium recruiter, we were able to assist our client in filling over 35 roles at the BSC. Of particular note, when our client’s consumer healthcare division went through a significant structural change, we were asked to recruit for several supply chain professionals with very short notice and handled this request successfully. This very positive relationship with our client still continues in Malaysia and across the globe.
