We started working with SBFM in 2023 when they urgently needed the support of a specialist bid recruitment agency. It was crucial that they hired a new Bid Manager quickly into their team, so they chose to work with our recruitment consultants on the search.
The business urgently required a new Bid Manager to replace headcount in the team. As the person was leaving the team shortly, it was crucial that they hired quickly to ensure a smooth transition.
3Search was best positioned to support SBFM in this search. Not only do we have specialist bid recruiters, but our team also specialises by industry. Hayley Jones focuses on hiring bid management professionals in the business services industry, and so was the most-suitable recruiter for this talent search.
SBFM were looking for a Bid Manager who would be able to travel into their office based in Leeds 5-days a week. This is a tricky requirement to manage, with many candidates looking for more flexibility in their roles. Plus, due to the time constraints, they needed someone with just one-month notice period.
Both requirements limited the talent pool for this search, but Hayley was able to leverage her deep network of Bid Managers to identify an excellent candidate for the role. She was also able to negotiate a contract that both parties were happy to accept, agreeing on 4-days a week in the office.
After several weeks of searching by other means, we engaged with 3Search, who quickly helped to find a suitable candidate for a Bid Manager role. We subsequently offered the role, which was accepted. Hayley, at 3Search, was very professional throughout, and rose to the specific challenges we had around location and other limiting factors. All the CVs I was asked to look at were from plausible candidates, and 3Search did not waste my time with completely unsuitable candidates. I was very happy with their service.
Hayley Jones - incredible recruiter! Exceptional! Hayley taught me not to undersell myself and to keep aiming high. As a result, and with her help, I have secured a new and exciting role which I am over the moon with. From initial discussions and CV submission through to interview preparation and onboarding, Hayley was always there to help and support throughout. She could not have been more helpful. Thank you, Hayley!
