Urgent seed specialist recruitment
Dutch grass and seed specialists Barenbrug Holland BV needed a new plant manager for a key logistics position in Denmark. It had to be someone with an unusual set of skills – and Barenbrug needed the vacancy filled fast.
Crucial position requires swift action
Marcel Wolbrink, Barenbrug’s Head of Supply Chain Management, had previously used JobAdvice recruitment services and been “very satisfied”, so he called in JobAdvice again.
As he explained, “We have no Barenbrug personnel management staff in Denmark, and we don’t know the Danish employment market well enough to do it ourselves.” With a vacancy in such a pivotal logistics position, Barenbrug also needed to act fast.
Knowing the market
According to Marcel Wolbrink, one of the big advantages of working with JobAdvice is that it’s a company well known for its in-depth experience with top-level international agricultural headhunting and recruitment, and the unique demands associated with decision-maker jobs in this field.
JobAdvice’s familiarity with this specialist market, along with deadline-bending flexibility and quick reaction times, enabled Barenbrug to find exactly the kind of person they were after for this pivotal job – and in double-quick time.
