Understand how we helped Leidos with their recruitment needs

Becoming a strategic recruitment partner to a global logistics and supply chain organisation, for their first contract in the UK.

The Recruitment Challenge

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.

The g2 Solution

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.

The Result

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 have 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, an exceptional quality of service and was received by our client and the client was able to focus on delivering the contract for the MOD.
