The Requirement:

Our client was mid-tier main contractor with a significant presence in the Canadian construction market.

They had a specific requirement for an Irish/UK Project Manager with significant experience in medical/hospital construction. It was a fixed term contract position for a 36 month project delivery.

The Method:

This assignment was personally handled by one our Directors who has extensive recruitment experience on hospital projects and excellent contacts in the Irish/UK markets. Upon discussing the assignment with our client we informed them of the approximate level of salary required to entice a high calibre candidate to Canada during a booming construction market in Ireland and the UK at that time.

Three potential candidates were identified and interviewed. Two were put forward to our client for review. Our client interviewed the two candidates via video conference arranged by KCM and both candidates were invited to Canada to carry out a final interview with the client.

The Result:

The successful candidate was offered a position and accepted. Upon starting this project it was delivered within a time frame of 34 months.
