Unlike many agencies that swamp inboxes with every CV they have, you pre-selected, and this allowed me to interview only the best candidates.

Project Manager | Merlin Entertainments

The Client

Merlin Entertainments are an international, FTSE 100 company most commonly known for their ownership of beloved theme parks, Alton Towers and LEGOLAND, not to mention national institution, Madame Tussauds! The group has almost 26,000 employees working at attractions in counties all over the world attracting over 40 million guests each year.

The Challenge

Having worked with Merlin previously to hire three Business Intelligence / SQL Developers, the team at Merlin tasked us with sourcing an additional Contract Data Migration Developer to work on a project with their London team.

The Result

As this was a new project team we hadn’t worked with previously, we felt it important to take the time to meet with the client to gain a better understanding of their needs for the project. We were then able to consult our niche talent pool of BI specialists to be able to supply them with candidates who really matched their needs. The client was impressed with the standard of talent we provided them resulting in a further two contract placements to the team.

Hear from the candidate…

“I have been contracting for over twenty years and I have to say that I have had good and not so good experiences of recruitment staff. However you have been very easy to communicate with and you have delivered what you said you would in a timely manner. Thus enhancing my initial interaction with the client and making my introduction to Consortia a smooth one.” SQL Developer | Merlin

“I’ve found working with you a very positive experience. You partnered Merlin, listening to our requirements and presented a number of suitable candidates. Unlike many agencies that swamp inboxes with every CV they have, you pre-selected and this allowed me to interview the best candidates. I’d happily recommend Consortia again should I be recruiting for a similar position.” Project Manager | Merlin
