Not long after we had we arrived back from the festivities and celebrations of a fantastic 2018 had we had received a super urgent contract from an End-user in the UK that needed starting ASAP!
Our Consultants at Focus on WD took the call on Thursday afternoon and gathered their requirements. The client needed a Functional Consultant since they had concentrated so heavily on the Payroll side up until now that Core HCM and been neglected and needed urgent attention.
The Focus on WD team managed to qualify, interview and shortlist two candidates almost immediately with several others ready and prepared for the following day. The 2 candidates that had been shortlisted were sent across with client interviews arranged out of hours for the very next day.
The two candidates were both suitable and able to perform the role however one of them was a solutions option and used as a back up in case the first Workday Candidate couldn’t perform the role.
The first candidate was initially interview prepped by Focus on WD and then interviewed by the client.
The interview was a success and both the candidate and client were happy with the process. Subsequently, the client issued and offer 30 minutes after the interview and had sent out the contract paperwork one hour later.
The contractor surprised with the incredible speed of the process was delighted to learn of the successful interview and even more so that they would start the following Monday. From the start of the recruitment process to the start of the contractor was 3 days. – including the weekend.
