IT was the first sector of focus for g2 and still contributes a substantial portion of the company’s turnover to this day. Over the years the IT sector has advanced at a rapid pace, with the skills and job opportunities becoming more diverse and complex than ever before. As a result, we now class IT as Technology. With teams covering everything from traditional infrastructure and networking, right up to the cutting edge of Software Development in AI and Big Data. g2 has kept up with this constant evolution by ensuring each niche is supported by expert consultants.
Spanning the UK and Europe with Tech hubs in Bristol, London, Brussels, Amsterdam and Frankfurt, g2 has an army of bi-lingual staff. Walk into any g2 office and you will hear French, Dutch, German and English being spoken. Flexibility and customer focus have been pivotal in our growth.
Our dedicated Technology teams have a huge array of tools at their disposal to find the permanent and contract workers you need to deliver your projects. However, it is the work above and beyond this traditional job-board recruitment that separates g2 from our competitors. Our consultants attend industry events, carry out strategic headhunting and building exclusive talent pools to help our clients beat their opposition to limited available candidates. Working closely with our clients is key to tailoring a recruitment solution that results in successful placements, whatever language they speak . . . or code in.
Becoming a strategic recruitment partner to a global logistics and supply chain organisation, for their first contract in the UK.
After engaging successfully with g2 at a previous company, the HR Director of a large US client approached g2 to work in partnership on a UK recruitment campaign. The client were in the process of bidding for a major government contract valued at £13 billion and required help to develop a robust talent acquisition plan for the UK market. This plan would require the client hiring over 300 positions over 4 years across a number of disciplines including IT, Finance, Operations, Quality and Senior Appointments.
g2 developed a recruitment plan for 2014-2018 that mapped out the real cost, advised on UK salaries and built a pool of the best candidates in advance of the contract win to ensure our client could deliver immediately if they won the work. A dedicated team of 3 consultants and a resourcer were chosen to work exclusively on the diverse and rare skill sets required to deliver the clients unique IT based solution, looking first for permanent and providing contractors if this was not an option. Pivotal to the solution was the depth and breadth of g2’s database, as well as the considerable advertising campaign to reach additional people, a cost that was built into the fees.
Through a combination of market knowledge, dedicated resource and a strict selection process, g2 placed 60 staff in a short space of time. Only one candidate turned down the offer during this intense spell, highlighting the benefits of rigorous candidate management and the methodical approach employed by g2. This was achieved through well-managed communication between HR, hiring managers and our consultants and ensured excellent staff retention during a critical phase of the contract. As a result, the client has made g2 the recruitment partner of choice, a position held to this day. By quickly getting to grips with the real challenges the client faced, g2 enabled rapid growth and allowed them to focus on delivering the contract for the MOD.
