Our Experience

Throughout 2015, Nina and Ben developed a strong working relationship, culminating in the engagement to source a Bid Executive to join Nina’s team on a permanent basis. Due to the consistent dialogue, Ben understood what skills were required, as well as what character would fit in with the team.

Through use of our Salary Survey, Ben provided Nina with guidance on how to attract the best candidates in a traditionally challenging geographical location. Given the specificity of the requirement and desire to find someone at a particular point in their career, Ben delivered a targeted shortlist of prescreened candidates that were both eager to work for The Oxford Group and capable of hitting the ground running.

With a clearly defined interview process and a commitment to hire, it only took eight weeks from the initial brief to the candidate’s first day. Having recruited an experienced and creative Bid Executive, Bid Solutions looks forward to further strengthening the relationship with The Oxford Group, providing support and advice where needed.

Client Testimonial Bid Solutions was very responsive and put forward good quality candidates. They gave me sound advice in terms of where to pitch the role and Ben was a pleasure to work with - thank you.
