Working with their Head of PMO, we partnered to bolster their PMO function to support on a critical programme.
The Hiring Manager wanted to see candidates who were capable of quickly integrating within the team and could rapidly add value and governance to the programme.
With Rail being such a niche industry, the talent pool of candidates who had previous industry exposure is small.
Our Approach & Solutions
We met with the Hiring Manager to take a detailed brief on the programme they were required for. We made sure to get a detailed understanding of the type of skillset required, but also the type of candidate who could fit into the team
We found an experienced candidate who we used as a benchmark against the additional hires to ensure quality with every submission
We took detailed interview feedback and post placement reviews to understand the qualities that were making the candidates successful in the role, and to ensure they were happy with the level of support required from the agency
We supplied them with 3 candidates initially, all of whom were interviewed and 2 who were offered for the 2 positions required.
Since then, we have worked closely with Transpennine to support other programmes in the business, and have forged strong relationships across the teams.
