THE CHALLENGE

Eggplant entered discussions with Jurupa in November 2016 whilst they were in the process of seeking an agency that were plugged into the software engineering talent pool in the North West of England. The company had acquired a legacy office in Cheshire (30 miles south of Manchester) via a previous acquisition and had plans to grow the existing engineering team in that office.

THE BRIEF

Jurupa were at first contracted to supply a shortlist of candidates under a contingency agreement. The implication during those initial discussions with Eggplant was that provided Jurupa executed the search successfully, there would be an invitation to discuss a long term RPO for the following year. The challenge having been presented and accepted, Jurupa moved swiftly to put plans in place to commence the search.

OUR APPROACH

The task facing Jurupa was to utilise our existing connections into the local software engineering talent pool in order to identify a highly qualified and well educated graduate with 2-3 years of relevant work experience. In addition to launching a full scale advertising campaign aimed at attracting the brightest minds, Jurupa reached out to Manchester University’s renowned Computer Science department and orchestrated a campaign to identify a suitable shortlist of talent to approach.

END RESULT & CONCLUSION

A swift and successful recruitment process resulted in Jurupa supplying a highly coveted candidate to Eggplant who was secured against some tough competition. This early success in turn paved the way for Jurupa to enter discussions around 2017 hiring plans; following a series of positive and constructive discussions with the senior management team, Jurupa were selected as Eggplants exclusive recruitment partner in EMEA and have since gone on to form a highly successful partnership with their US based recruitment team.
