When Plus One first began working with Volvo Group, we were invited to their UK head office in Warwick. They have a great company culture and there is a great deal of focus put into the engagement and happiness of their employees. As their recruitment partner, it is our job to not only provide high quality candidates for interview, but also to ensure that the candidates we put forward are the right fit for the existing team.
During our visit we were given the opportunity to meet with the relevant line managers from across the Volvo Group brands such as Volvo Financial Service, Renault Trucks, Uptime Solutions and Parts. We were able to develop an in depth understanding of the type of professionals that thrive and progress within those specific brands.
Since then we have been able to successfully introduce our candidates into temporary, contract and permanent roles with the company. Feedback received from these successful candidates since starting their new roles has been fantastic. This is why ensuring the right fit also means that we are helping both our employers and our candidates to reach their goals.
“Plus One were not originally on our tender list however after speaking with Christina she offered to help by sending some sample tender documents, without expecting anything in return. This really stood out to us and since then we have developed a good relationship with everyone at Plus One. They show pride in their work and as local experts they help us to attract people, who aren’t necessarily in the automotive industry, to our roles in administration, finance and other professional office based roles.”
