Kinetic Solutions

Summary:

Big Red first engaged with Kinetic at a time when they were finding it extremely painful and long winded to find quality Application Support people. The Big Red managed recruitment service that was implemented significantly saved time and improved speed of hire.

About:

Kinetic Solutions are a leading provider of software to the University and Events Management market. They have a team of 60 employees based out of Milton Keynes, a difficult location due to having to compete with the London market.

Challenges:

The core challenge was around the quality of candidates that Kinetic were receiving from recruiters. By working with numerous agencies, they were lacking the sort of focussed engagement and understanding that you get from a trusted partner.

Our Solution:

IT support usually involve a high volume of interest, but it’s often difficult to gauge the quality of a candidate based on their CV. By conducting Big Red interviews on site, we installed an extra level of qualification, ensuring that all candidates met by Kinetic were hitting the right technical and cultural profile. This saved them time and made it easier to hire across the whole company.

Results:

• 12 hires in 18 months across Development, Support, Test, Project Management, Product.
• Between 2 and 3 interviews per hire which was a dramatic improvement.
• A long term exclusive recruitment partnership.

Client's Comment:

“Big Red’s unique desire to understand the detailed characteristics that make great Kinetic employees, combined with their quality recruitment process and connections set them apart from other agents we have experienced.

We repeatedly work with Big Red for our recruitment needs and are able to continue to add fantastic employees to the Kinetic team. Thanks Big Red!.”
