Recticel Flexible Foams provide durable solutions for a wide variety of customer needs in areas such as silencing, sealing, filtering and comforting. Recticel needed assistance in hiring an interim Operations Manager for their site in Corby and had already interviewed several candidates to no avail through other recruiters.The position was business-critical, and it was imperative to find the right candidate for the job in a timely manner.
We visited the Recticel site in Alfreton and met with the Operations Director to gain a real understanding of the business and its requirements in a new interim Operations Manager for their Corby site. A tight brief was identified, with the candidate requiring high-volume manufacturing experience amongst several other specific skills and attributes, something other recruitment businesses had been failing to meet.
Beyond just a CV match, we work hard to identify personal attributes and alignment with company values. Using our extensive network of engineers, we identified a great match who was interviewed twice and offered the role within 2 weeks.
In hiring an interim Operations Manager, Recticel were able to ensure smooth running of their Corby site.
We have since gone on to recruit their Head of UK Operations, the Head of Health & Safety as well as Operations Managers for 2 of the UK Converting plants and other members of the Operations Teams. Supporting Recticel in their recruitment of senior management helped them to run the business and operate with minimal disruption to the day-to-day.
