Our Client’s Challenge

Our client, a wholly-owned Sarawak State Government company formed to spearhead the State’s participation in the oil and gas sector, had experienced difficulties when searching for a Chief Finance Officer (CFO) in a candidate-short market. The CFO position was critical to the client’s business strategy but the role had remained vacant for more than three months.

Our Solution

Our team in Malaysia liaised with the client’s HR team to gain an in-depth understanding of the role requirements.

Then, using our established networks and connections, we undertook a discreet direct headhunting effort enabling us to map out the market and target our search to the active and passive market. A pre-qualified shortlist was then generated within tight timescales.

The Outcome

A successful placement was made in a quick timeframe. The client was impressed with our short-listed candidates and our rapid execution of the scope. We are continuing to collaborate as their preferred supplier to assist in driving their business forward and securing further key hires.

The spread of COVID-19 is affecting all of us. But as a global staffing company, NES would like to reassure our customers that we are fully operational across all our locations and are working closely with clients to ensure essential projects stay on track at this difficult time.
