Recruiting in Procurement was new for me coming from a Finance background and having previously managed a stable procurement team.
Cedar has helped me to recruit two roles in my new Procurement team: an interim IT Procurement Manager and a permanent Procurement Analyst and on both occasions Louise has made the process as easy and efficient as possible.
For the interim IT Procurement Manager, after discussing my requirements, they sent me the CV of the perfect candidate who was available on short notice and experienced in the area. They organised a meeting with the candidate within days and even the culture matched my organisation. I hired the candidate immediately for a start on the following Monday. The candidate is doing a great job in her role and is an asset to the team.
For the Procurement Analyst, I asked Cedar for help after having a bad experience with another recruitment agency due to the specific nature of the role.
They provided a short list of candidates that were spot on and despite one candidate disappointingly accepting an offer somewhere else, the new recruit is starting this week.
Cedar’s ability to understand requirements both technically and in relation to procurement competencies along with Cedar’s effective processes have delivered success for my team.
