  • Client had an open role for over 5 months.
  • Could not identify the right candidate for the role and had engaged several agencies who tried themselves as well.

  • One candidate was successful, and the first interview to offer acceptance took only 10 days.
  • Experis not only obtained 100% interview rate, but closed the role, which had been open for over 6 months, in 10 days.
