Sodexo have an unrivalled reputation for building lasting partnerships with clients through open, transparent relationships based on trust and exceptional performance.
In the UK and Ireland, their 35,000 employees are striving to improve the quality of daily life at over 2,000 client locations across all market sectors.
Sodexo develops, manages and delivers a diverse range of services, designed to improve the quality of life for our clients and customers.
Sodexo began its operations in Paris. By 1995 they had become the world leaders in food services through successful alliances with Gardner Merchant (UK) and Pardena (Sweden). Experiencing extraordinary growth in such a short period of time, the business ventured into the field of facilities management and is one of the few organisations which self delivers all areas of hard and soft FM services.
The Problem / Opportunity
Sodexo was unable to identify and select a suitable candidate through their existing preferred supplier list to manage the HSBC account which had recently been tendered successfully. This resulted in engaging Bridge Recruitment through recommendations from the newly appointed project director.
In order to establish a clear understanding of the client’s needs, Bridge Recruitment was invited to view both the operational environment and provided with a detailed candidate profile specification.
Within seven working days, Bridge Recruitment had provided a selection of suitable candidates, all of which were a close match to the client requirements.
The successful placement was achieved through Bridge Recruitment understanding clearly the detailed candidate specification, working environment and culture. The client had confirmed that despite working previously with a number of other suppliers, they had not met a single candidate who was suitable for the opportunity.
Bridge successfully placed the required position within three weeks of receiving the placement request.
