Jerry Lee and Frank Khotso from First Point Group's Johannesburg office, partnered with their client, a global integrator of communications products and services to recruit a Senior Account Manager who would join immediately and help bring in new business.

The client specified that the recruitment hiring process needed to be fast so that the successful candidate could begin winning new business as soon as possible. Due to the time urgency, Jerry and Frank had to work closely together and ensure that every process form the recruiting through to the onboarding process was as seamless as possible. Jerry Lee commented: "The role wasn’t an easy one to fill, as we had a very limited time in which to fill it to prove to the client that we meant business."

The client gave a specific brief which really helped understand fully what the requirements for the role were and what the client wanted. The team used a direct, targeted approach to search through their telecommunications network and within a week they came across a candidate that who the believed would be a great fit for the position. After introducing the candidate to the client, the interviews happened quickly and thankfully both parties were liked each other. Regular communication with both the client and candidate was vital through the onboarding process to ensure everything was in place.

The communication aspect of the placement was relatively easy as Jerry and Frank had built such good relationships with both the candidate and client. Jerry Lee commented: "We truly showcased the FPG spirit in teamwork and together, not only delivered to the client what we had promised, but won their trust in us in giving us more business to come."
