Case Study Capgemini

Recruiting
International Java Developers

Challenge

Capgemini is a global leader in the worlds of consulting and technology. So, if you’re known worldwide for innovation, it’s not a surprise when you suddenly have to hire up to twenty smart and educated Java Developers. But that’s a big ask, nonetheless, especially when you only have six months to get it done.

We showed up at the right time:

The moment was obviously there to hire specialists. That said, we figured out that the real search was for skills first and experience second. Senior Technology Recruiters know how to reframe searches in order to find the right fit.

We sat down with our client to get a clear understanding for where we could be more flexible. We’d never sacrifice quality. But what if, for instance, we were no longer bound to a particular location (when looking for candidates)?

Outside of the Netherlands, as usual, we discovered a huge pool of candidates. By thinking outside the box, you get to a solution more quickly. And we like to think in terms of solutions.

Solutions

When you’re ready to scale, it’s pretty convenient to avoid language barriers. Thanks to a team that was able to communicate with ease, market leader Capgemini remained one step ahead of competitors.

How? With 20 candidates, all identified, screened, and placed by us. 18 of them are expats, and our sister company Your Expat Agency organized each of those relocations.

We even took care of a Dutch language course: every expat received three weeks of private lessons. These took place eight weeks ahead of their departure to the Netherlands.

A few of the candidates have already been promoted within their teams.

Results: 20 new hires
