Olenex has been providing the world with high-quality edible oils and fats from refineries located around Europe for around a decade, and has been growing from strength to strength. Recently, Olenex partnered with Vivid Resourcing to help with recruitment for a major expansion, and we were able to find some talented contractors for them. We spoke to Rodrigo from Olenex to find out how he thought things went.
Rodrigo was tasked with putting together a project team for the expansion, a €165 million move into specialty oils and fats. As part of this, the organisation had a need for people experienced with 3D modelling who were knowledgeable at operating different programs and tools; something Olenex didn’t have in-house. As a result, Rodrigo reached out to Vivid to see if we could help find the right people for the job.
Rodrigo was put in touch with Grant here at Vivid to find talent for Olenex. After outlining the project and the statement of work, Rodrigo asked Grant to find some CVs of relevant candidates. Within four days, Grant was able to come back with some good options, after which they were able to create a shortlist and arrange interviews.
Grant set up the meetings, introduced the candidates to Rodrigo and then left them to an interview, always following up with a call to see how things had gone. Although there is always a risk that none of the shortlisted candidates will be suitable, in this case the job hunt was successful. Grant and Vivid have now supplied Olenex with four designers to date.
