We had to find the right person in a short amount of time. A leading role in a strategic project was in play, a position of tremendous responsibility, and a recruitment error would be risky. But, in just a week,PRIO found the project manager it needed.
Tiago Cachim, Information Systems Director at PRIO, is aware of how demanding his request was, but the situation demanded it: “I tasked Novabase Neotalent with finding someone who had senior experience, was immediately available to come to work in Aveiro, had good adaptation skills and qualities that would allow them to begin working immediately and add value to the company. And I asked them to find that person as quickly as possible”.
A tough process of managing the entire organization was on the cards, and we needed someone to take the reins: “In order to develop that project, one would have to talk to dozens of entities, work weekends, travel to Lisbon a number of times,” according to Tiago Cachim.
When he met the professional Novabase Neotalent suggested, expectations were huge.PRIO`s Systems Director recalls meeting them on a Friday: “They arrived at noon, we introduced ourselves, had lunch, and had a meeting with the people they'd be leading right after that, 14 people they didn't know, at a company they'd just arrived at”. He didn't have to wait until Monday to realize he had just appointed the right person to the right role: “From the very first moment, I saw that they had the skills their job required. I was extremely pleased”. So pleased that, only a month later, he made use of our services to make another recruitment. Now, two people found by Novabase Neotalent are working at PRIO, with more appointments expected soon.
