In 2010, a major technology transformation programme was initiated at BBC Worldwide, creating a need for significant additional resourcing with positions for up to 40 permanent heads and additional staff in other functions. ReThink Recruitment was chosen as a first tier supplier for both permanent and contract staffing, having won the tender process and also worked with the BBC since 2005.
We recruited both permanent and contract IT staff across all parts of BBC Worldwide using a variety of resourcing methods, including online advertising, branded online campaigns, database searches, networking and headhunting.
We ran a specific campaign for six permanent staff which involved building an online campaign, with BBC Worldwide branded banners on major job boards and technical forums aimed at senior technical staff. These pages directed visitors to dedicated employer-branded landing pages for the campaign with details of the client, the benefits and details for each role.
Since we were retained as a supplier we successfully placed ten contractors, ranging from Agile .NET Developers to Programme Managers and twelve permanent staff including Development Managers, Business Analysts, Technical Support and Technical Architects.
Our permanent recruitment campaign successfully delivered five people in a variety of niche roles such as iPhone Developers, Architects, QA Manager and Head of Project Delivery.
"We greatly appreciate the efforts that ReThink have made and continue to make on our behalf. We are consistently impressed with the end results in terms of the overall recruitment process, which demonstrates dedication and intelligence surpassing other services. The fact we have very little turnover is a testament to BBC Worldwide being a great place to work but also to the attitude and spirit we have been able to foster through intelligent, targeted recruitment. This has been down to ReThink in no small part.”
