Technology client case study

Dell

"GCS understands the technical market to an extremely high level and work in a professional manner whilst maintaining a warm approach to communication"


The company

A multinational computer technology company with a sizeable physical presence in Ireland, Dell is one of the most successful and recognisable IT brands in the world.

The challenge

Whilst recruitment activity was high in the Dublin branch of Dell, it was proving more difficult to obtain both the quantity and the quality of candidates to staff a substantial SharePoint project based out of Dell's Limerick office


The solution

With Dell's original recruitment partners mainly comprising of regional businesses unable to source more than a limited number of local candidates, GCS was able to offer a solution by drawing on its extensive and exhaustive network of European candidates.

Locating SharePoint experts from assorted EU countries, GCS promoted the benefits of contracting in Ireland to candidates who had previously never considered this possibility. Through this, GCS was able to combine this untapped international resource with the very best home-grown talent located in or willing to commute to Limerick in order to rapidly and dramatically increase the headcount on this vital project.


They said

"A key quality we look for in our recruitment partners is that they are flexible and open to change; GCS definitely fulfil this criteria. The nature of our business is such that we are often in a competitive bid situation so can only offer limited information to a recruiter but GCS always provide us with a variety of options, helping us hone in on what the customer actually needs and working proactively with us as the overall end requirement becomes clearer.

GCS understands the technical market to an extremely high level and work in a professional manner whilst maintaining a warm approach to communication, offering a personable service that delivers great value to our business."
