Our work with Rider Levett Bucknall

We started working with Rider Levett Bucknall in 2023 when they were looking for a Junior Bid Coordinator job. The role was needed urgently, which is why they decided to engage a specialist bid recruitment agency. 

An urgent hire for the bid team

Hit by the pandemic, the Junior Bid Coordinator job was originally furloughed. Now, Rider Levett Bucknall could re-introduce the position to the business and needed our support with the hire. Initially, the job was a 12-month fixed-term contract with the potential for the candidate to move permanently.  

Speed was key with this hire. The business had already been advertising the role for a couple of months when they engaged us, so they knew a specialist recruiter would be able to turn the search around quickly for them. 

The power of a recruiter’s network 

Specialist bid recruiter, Hayley Jones, was engaged to help Rider Levett Bucknall on this urgent hire. Hayley has a profound network within the built environment and so was best positioned within our bid recruitment team to support on the hire. 

Searching for a contractor can often reduce the candidate pool for any role and result in a lengthy search. However, Hayley was able to schedule interviews the second day of the search.  

Thanks to her comprehensive knowledge of her extensive network, Hayley identified who would be open to this type of position in just one day. She found the perfect candidate by considering their previous experience, career aspirations and availability for the quick start date.
