We worked closely with Proserv to fully understand the requirements for the position. From that point, we mapped out the relevant markets to fully identify potential candidates. Applying our search methodology to access suitable and available individuals we then conducted initial interview screening and a thorough selection process on each of the short listed candidates. As a part of the initial selection we had to determine technical and team fit, soft skills capability including the ability to influence and drive an operational excellence programme with a focus on quality, LEAN processes as a part of a highly precise manufacturing system.
