1. Business situation

The company works closely with Microsoft, helping clients with their software solutions. Projects typically include SharePoint and Outlook integrations. As the business grew, workload for the company rapidly increased as new Microsoft products were released to an expanding client base.

An experienced Back End Developer was required to help manage the workload. However, the company was experiencing challenges recruiting for the role because of high competition for the technical skills and its non-central location.

2. The solution we offered

After three weeks conducting thorough searches within the local talent pool, Robert Half was able to present four experienced candidates to the client. Interviews were conducted consecutively through video calls which sped up the process and enabled the client to make clear comparisons and informed decisions on who would best meet their business needs. Following the interviews, the company extended an offer to the most suitable candidate within one week.

3. Client's return on investment

The Back End Developer has supported business growth by ensuring new software solutions integrate seamlessly into clients’ back end processes and systems. Specifically, the candidate has taken responsibility for creating, testing and debugging back end processes.
