Case Study - Onshore Wind

Fast Hiring Through International Collaboration

Our client is headquartered in Paris, and was working on a major onshore wind energy project in Ukraine. They needed to recruit candidates to join their management and support teams.

Our client wanted to hire locally in Ukraine. They faced considerable pressure to find a Project Director, Head of Asset Management, Site Manager, Finance Manager and Electrical Dispatcher quickly, to avoid project delays.

  • Their entire recruitment team was based in Paris and they did not have an in-country presence in Ukraine, meaning they had little knowledge of the local market or the talent environment, with no benchmark for local market rates.
  • There was a significant language barrier as they had no staff who could speak Ukrainian, yet needed candidates who could speak both Ukrainian and English to effectively communicate with the upper management teams based in Paris. This requirement considerably narrowed the eligible talent pool.

We submitted top-quality candidates within just one week of initiating our search and filled all of the roles within just a month, thus avoiding any delays to our client’s project. As a result of our rapid support we have become the client’s sole provider in Ukraine, and they have tasked us with filling three more key positions for the same project.
