Swindale Parks Recruitment
Swindale Parks (Sales & Marketing) Recruitment Agency based in Birmingham, West Midlands - Sales & Marketing candidates and Sales & Marketing job vacancies throughout the Midlands and UK.
Swindale Parks (www.swindaleparks.co.uk) was created in 1991 by Peter Cash and Carl Booth, both of whom still work within the business on a day to day basis inspiring the team around them to achieve the same high levels of customer service that has served the company so well over the last 24 years.
As a recruitment agency based in modern offices in the heart of the UK, and serving clients on a Global basis, we specialise in 4 key, business critical areas, namely Sales, Marketing, Procurement & Supply Chain, the latter two disciplines being marketed under our Redimo brand (www.redimo.co.uk).
Through our team of highly experienced recruitment professionals, who between them have approaching 100 years’ recruitment experience, we continuously strive to deliver upon our company ethos, namely “helping organisations grow and prosper through the introduction of outstanding people”. The recruitment team is supported by a marketing specialist who handles all marketing campaigns, recruitment advertising and social media networks.
Whilst it is the organisations that we recruit for who pay our bills, the real life-blood of our business are the candidates that we place into the vacancies that our clients entrust us with. We therefore invest considerable amounts of money into candidate generation activities, and we believe this is one of the key factors that gives us a competitive edge over our peers in the recruitment sector. Because of this, we are often called upon to work on ‘hard to fill’ recruitment projects which our competitors have been unable to deliver upon. Finding ‘needles in haystacks’ has always been a major strength of ours.
If you’re looking to partner with an agency that has substance, history & an undying passion for all things recruitment then look no further than Swindale Parks – we would be delighted to work with you.
Client: UK subsidiary of one of Europe’s leading steel mills, one of the most profitable in the world.
Brief: To recruit an Automotive Sales Manager, c£50,000 + car + benefits, reporting into the Chief Executive, with responsibility for negotiating multi million £ supply agreements with established and new Automotive OEM accounts. Candidates of graduate calibre were sought, with particular interest in those with a metallurgical or materials processing background and a proven track record of sales achievement within the Automotive sector.
Solution: As this was a senior level appointment a visit to the client’s premises to meet the Chief Executive, and discuss in greater depth his needs, was a pre-requisite at the outset. Due to the importance and urgency of the project it was agreed that Swindale Parks would undertake, on a sole agency basis, an exclusive advertising approach to sourcing candidates, utilising The Daily Telegraph and a number of specifically targeted recruitment job boards.
All aspects of the recruitment project, upto short-list stage, were out-sourced to Swindale Parks, thereby freeing the Chief Executive to focus into other business matters. In total over 200 responses were processed by the Managing Consultant, from which in excess of 20 were invited for interview and 5 short listed for a meeting with the Chief Executive, from which one was offered (and duly accepted) the role. The project was successfully concluded within the agreed time-scale and to budget.
