International beverage company

Background

An international beverage company in the wine and spirits industry, which was in the process of setting up operations in the Australian market, invited PageGroup to help support their recruitment needs.

We were selected as the company’s exclusive partner based on factors including our specialism and expertise across all core business functions and levels, track record of success at managing complex, national campaigns and the depth of our candidate network within the fast-moving consumer goods market. 

Approach

A dedicated account management team, which included 10 recruiters and an account director, was put in charge of the project.

Strategies included:

  • Writing job descriptions, candidate profiles and benchmarking salary packages for all positions
  • Developing a project timeline which focused on three recruitment cycles and the coordination of all candidate interviews and flights for candidates in and out of Sydney for the regional positions as the hiring managers were unable to travel due to time restraints
  • Sourcing of candidates through database and targeted (for senior roles) searches as well as online and press advertisements

Results

All 14 positions were successfully recruited for within the given timeframe of three months, with every candidate commencing their role five months into the start of local operations. The 14 roles included eight roles in sales, two in marketing, two in customer service, one in office support and one in supply chain/logistics.

Geographically, placements were made in NSW (head office), VIC, QLD, SA and WA. All placed candidates were still employed after their probation periods.
