Chief Operations Officer, Nano-Nouvelle

Challenge

Nano-Nouvelle’s recruitment had been attracting large numbers of unsuitable applicants and they had been struggling to find a suitable recruiter for a COO position as their demands of exclusivity, up-front fees, and high overall commission were unacceptable.

How TalentVine Helped

TalentVine’s network included recruitment agencies specialising in technology and science. By selecting agencies that had experience in dealing with similar candidates, the consultants reached out to their networks across Australia for this very niche role that required experience in nanotechnology and a willingness to relocate to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

Results and Return on Investement

Of the six candidates presented, Nano-Nouvelle interviewed four and were pleased to offer the position to Greg. After 16 months Greg is still an integral part of the team and has helped Nano-Nouvelle win multiple awards whilst become a global leader in 3D nano-porous conductive membranes.

Nano-Nouvelle also saved $12,000 in recruitment fees based on what they had been quoted before using TalentVine’s platform.
