Staffing a new project for Alfen


“One of the great advantages of doing business with Vivid is that they have an international network of specialists, are fast to react to our needs and know exactly what kind of skills are important to us”*


Alfen is both the core and the linking pin of the electricity grid, providing transformer stations, energy storage systems, charging stations for electric vehicles as well as a range of other products and services.

The Challenge

Alfen had a big challenge of staffing a new project that required three temporary
embedded specialists. With a tight deadline in mind, they got in contact with us to support them in the search for skilled personnel.

The Solution

Since we already had a relationship with Alfen, there were a number of suitable profiles readily available to share that matched the job requirements. The day following the initial briefing, Alfen were presented with five resumes, and within 24 hours we were able to schedule the first interview. Within a week, all three vacancies were successfully filled, providing a quick turnaround for the project to get started.
