Securing tech talent for a telecoms giant
Cyber security arm of a global telecoms group
The client is a cyber security service provider that belongs to one of the world's leading telecom groups in emerging markets. The group provides solutions to 146 million subscribers across the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
As a long-term client of our enabling tech team, when the group purchased a new cyber security arm, we were put in touch with their hiring manager to start building a new partnership.
Our new relationship began with a single role. The same day we received our brief, we shared a CV and, by the end of the week, an offer was on the table. After demonstrating our ability to turn things round with rapid precision, our partnership has gone from strength to strength.
Since first partnering with the client, we've now closed positions for roles ranging from professional services and internal pre-sales, to senior commercial positions and a country director in Saudi Arabia.
In fact, our expertise in the Saudi market has been essential. With our regional knowledge, we’ve provided effective strategies for three hires in the area, with many more to come in the future.
We’ve now sourced more than 20 people in less than a year. Our candidates have been found in Eastern Europe, the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) and more locally. And we’ve achieved it all against the challenging backdrop of Covid-19.
