I have worked with Ryan and Consortia to fill 3 critical positions in my organisation. In all cases he was able to provide good solutions and in a very short period of time, delivering resource solutions in as little as two weeks. Highly recommend Ryan and Consortia for your staffing needs.
Chief Strategy Officer - Arvato Bertelsmann
Arvato Bertelsmann is a global services company, headquartered in Gütersloh, Germany. Its services include customer support, information technology, logistics, and finance.
The history of Arvato goes back to the printing and industry services division of Bertelsmann; the current name was introduced in 1999. With an annual £4 bn. turnover, there are 30,000 employees in nearly 30 countries, who work to develop and implement innovative solutions for business customers.
Arvato were looking for a full eCommerce platform update. They required urgent help to identify and secure user experience resource to ensure the platform had the very best user experience.
They hadn’t previously hired user experience resource into this team and required consulting to help them understand and identify the right type of freelance resource to help deliver the project in the most effective way.
Our expert team provided a detailed market report to help Arvato hone their requirement and utilised our relationship-driven talent pool and availability tracker to identify user experience practitioners who were best suited to the project and also available to start immediately.
Within a single week, we had briefed the position, provided a high-quality shortlist and secured the UX talent for the project.
Head of UX, Ryan Ollerenshaw submitted three candidates, all of whom went through to interview and all progressed to final interview. This resulted in two offers being sent.
The ratios were impressive: 3 candidates: 3 interviews and 2 placements: 2 acceptances.
The contractors proved to be so successful with Arvato that they were extended on numerous occasions and spent over 18 months working on the project, with one of the contractors converting to a permanent position after this time.
