Company size: 20 staff globally, one in East Africa
Situation to address:
- Need to hire a second person on the ground, though very limited time and recruitment experience in the team (local and global)
- Limited budget available and typical headhunter charge up to 1.5 monthly salaries
edge engagement (3 months):
- Identification of the required profile, including talent mapping of the current local staff member.
- Targeting suitable talent through direct approaching and a variety of promotional channels, leading to over 150 applicants
- Screening of talent, both virtual and physical interview, forwarding 4 final candidates to ANDE
- Support in the final selection decision
- Onbording workshop for the two staff discussing how to leverage their differences to create synergy
- New staff joined 10 weeks after the first conversation
- Truly diverse team on the ground
- One year after: Great performance and team work, with plans to hire a 3rd member!
