Recruiting for a support centre build out

Our client

A global billion dollar networking systems specialist headquartered in the United States with a large presence in Mexico. 

The Challenge

Our client needed to rapidly build a brand new support center in Mexico City. This required filling a significant number of critical positions within a tight time frame (one month), including Line 2 & 3 Optical Support Engineers, Network Management System Support Engineers, and Routing & Switching Certified Engineers (all Lines 2 & 3).

The Solution

Our team based in Mexico City were perfectly placed to help our client, literally from a geographical perspective and from an expertise point of view given our experience recruiting in the telecoms and technology spaces. By leveraging a comprehensive multi-channel recruitment strategy,  our team in Mexico ensured a steady flow of qualified candidates to fulfill everyone one of our clients open positions.

Our Approach

  • Targeted Outreach: Utilized our extensive CRM database to directly reach out to potential candidates residing in Mexico.
  • Amplified Reach: Leveraged our large social media presence, promoting the open positions organically through their LinkedIn page with 300,000 followers (and over 3 million impressions), and through paid advertising targeting a precisely defined audience matching our client's requirements. 
  • Engaging Networks: We extended our reach further by promoting the roles to their active LinkedIn group of 30,000 members and their Facebook audience of over 50,000 followers.
  • Website Optimization: Open positions were strategically posted on our website, which receives approximately 20,000 monthly visitors, with built-in technology on our job application forms qualifying candidates who are based in Mexico, and have a valid right to work. Ensuring only relevant candidates apply. 
  • Referral Program: We actively tapped into their network of pre-vetted candidates, requesting referrals for suitable positions. 

The Results

Our multifaceted approach yielded impressive results:

  • Project Completion Ahead of Schedule: Our client filled all 49 required positions in less time than anticipated, with our team in Mexico City playing a crucial role in achieving this milestone.
  • Client Satisfaction: Our client expressed their sincere gratitude regarding our partnership, highlighting our professionalism, responsiveness, and instrumental role in the successful completion of the project.
