Kostas - Chief Technical Officer

“I have been impressed by the recruitment services provided by Oscar Technology as they made an effort to understand the organisations needs, find the right candidates who had the skills but also ‘fit’ the culture of the business which is very important especially in a fast growing companies.”

Kostas, Chief Technology Officer

Consultant: Matthew Southworth

The Challenge

Kostas was initially contacted by Oscar in 2008 at a time when his employer was recruiting IT staff and we were invited to support him on that hire.

However, Oscar was in competition with other recruitment agencies who came recommended by his colleagues.

As Oscar had no history with Kostas, it was essential that we quickly made the right impression by delivering an effective service including the services he required:

  • Top industry talent
  • Candidate control
  • Positive candidate experiences
  • Market feedback
  • Regular communication
  • Recruitment solutions

What We Did

We met with Kostas and established twin lines of communication.

Firstly, we provided him with an Account Manager as a central recruitment contact. This ensured all key information was retained within Oscar and could be communicated to all our team members clearly without any repetition.

For Kostas, this meant that core information, relevant to all recruitment projects, was known and understood by Oscar for each individual hire.

Secondly, once we confirmed that Kostas was happy to work with multiple Consultant contacts, we set up communication channels between Kostas and our Consultants who work in vertical markets.

The Results

What this has meant for Kostas is that he has enjoyed the benefit of working with IT Recruitment Specialists who are experts in their recruitment fields (determined by geography and technical discipline), so that he has been best placed to capture market information and secure the very best candidates for every hire.

Kostas has been delighted with Oscar’s services and our ability to deliver excellent candidates consistently to the timeframe of his projects.

He has used Oscar’s recruitment solutions at three different companies (ranging from late start-up stage to large multinational) in three different locations and three different industries as his recruitment partner of choice. Kostas has also recommended Oscar across his employers to include HR teams and other hiring managers.

Since 2008, Oscar has placed 26 IT Professionals in his teams, covering a wide range of IT disciplines including:

  • Mobile, Web & Software Development
  • Support & Infrastructure
  • Networking
  • Testing & QA
  • Senior Appointments & Project Office
  • RDBMS, BI & Big Data
