eCommerce and mCommerce Solutions Provider

To source multiple technical and non- technical IT roles.

The Challenge

Rapid growth for any company needs careful management, especially when it involves expanding key departments. When an international commerce specialist decided to open their first UK operation in London, they faced the challenging task of trying to hire for a plethora of business-critical technical and non-technical IT positions. To help them with their search, they sought a technology recruitment company with a proven track record of sourcing and placing talent across a multitude of disciplines – one that can move quickly to both identify and secure the right talent for their clients.

The Solution

Upon receiving the initial brief, Xist4’s director, Gozie Ezulike, met with the relevant line managers to get a better understanding of their requirements and to appreciate the level of skills needed for each role. Since the company needed Software Engineers, DevOps, QA Engineers, Performance Testers, Systems Administrators, Network Engineers, Product Owners, iOS Developers and Android Developers, Xist4 decided to assign dedicated account managers with vertical market expertise. They worked alongside each line manger to determine the recruitment strategy for their available roles.

For many of the vacancies, it was agreed to adopt a traditional recruitment strategy; so, job adverts were written and optimised and placed across the major technology job boards in the UK. Parallel to this approach, Xist4 also used social and business media platforms to engage with passive applicants who would be keen to seize the opportunity to join an industry-leading and major international technology PLC and play a key role in establishing and helping it to grow its presence in the UK.

The Result

The company's headquarters based in the heart of the in the City now houses over 70 employees, many of whom joined the company as a direct result of Xist4’s recruitment process. As with any position in London, the level of interest in each role was extremely high and Xist4’s strategy identified numerous candidates with extremely strong profiles across each area. Before introducing potential candidates, the account managers at Xist4 spent time ensuring those shortlisted matched the full criteria for each role, plus had the right personality to help develop the company’s new operation in London. The success of this hiring project has since led to Xist4 becoming this company’s full time digital and technology recruitment partner.
