We first started working with Tolent in 2022, when the business was looking for a specialist bid recruitment agency to support them in replacing headcount in their proposals team. So far, we have worked with Tolent to find them a Proposals Writer.
Tolent has a work-winning function made up of a bids team and a proposals team. It’s rare that their internal recruitment team have to recruit these roles and needed the support of a specialist bids and proposals recruiter to identify top bids talent for the business.
Bid recruitment consultant, Stuart Watson, specialises in recruiting for construction and infrastructure businesses, meaning that he was best positioned to lead this particular search. Stuart was able to leverage his network and expertise in the industry and skill set to find Tolent’s ideal candidate.
The original brief was for a Proposals Manager but due to the limited talent pool in Gateshead, where the business is located, they were unable to find a candidate with the right amount of experience to take on the role. As a result, Stuart worked with Tolent to refine the brief, which expanded the search to find a niche skill set. The business required a candidate who had strong writing experience, and so the role transitioned into a Proposals Writer.
Stuart approached me directly to assist on a Proposals Writer role that we were looking to fill quite urgently. We hit a wall in the initial search, but Stuart and I were able to rework the approach and ended up finding a great candidate for the position. Stuart kept in constant contact and ran an efficient hiring process. This is the first time using 3Search but I won’t hesitate to use them again if another vacancy comes up.
I had an excellent experience with 3Search. I dealt with Stuart who approached me on LinkedIn with a great opportunity well suited to my skills. I worked with Stuart over the next 2/3 weeks and he helped facilitate communications with my new employer, helped me to prepare for the interview, and kept me up to date through every step. Would recommend to anyone – many thanks to Stuart for helping me find my new job!
