How we found a niche technology expert for Hillrom

Our client was struggling to fill a vacancy that required niche medical technology experience. Thanks to our industry knowledge and our specialized network of industry experts, Amoria Bond was able to find three suitable candidates for an interview, of which the right person was hired. Since then, we have helped the customer fill additional positions and have become their preferred supplier.


Sector: Advanced Engineering
Placement: Interim
Location: The Netherlands

Hillrom is a leading provider of medical technologies for the healthcare industry, including hospital beds, patient lifts, and non-invasive therapeutic products. Innovators for more than 100 years, Hillrom’s vision focuses on supporting the people at the heart of the ever-evolving healthcare industry, enhancing the lives of patients and caregivers.

When Hillrom engaged Amoria Bond in February 2018, they were looking to recruit an interim Quality Assurance Manager for their operation in Amsterdam. For Hillrom, this was a unique project, as typically they did not look to source people in temporary positions.

Hillrom had been unable to fill the vacancy due to the niche medical experience required. They’d worked with other recruitment agencies who had failed to supply a single CV. 

Soon after appointing Amoria Bond, Hillrom saw the project quickly grow. Initially only looking to fill one interim role, unexpectedly the requirements changed to find three interim Quality Assurance Manager positions. Amoria Bond stepped in to provide a staffing and consultancy solution to unlock their potential.

Our recruitment experts worked with Hillrom to fully understand the role and candidate requirements, including the project timescales and budget. 

We could then use our extensive network to source the best person for the position. Within a day, we shortlisted three candidates and followed with a further two the next day. We conducted screening interviews and reference checks before submitting CVs to the client as quality assurance.

Thanks to the quality and speed of our delivery, Hillrom assigned us to work on the vacancy exclusively. They interviewed three candidates within a week, from which they hired their ideal candidate. 

Hillrom was so impressed with our candidates' quality and delivery speed that they later engaged us as their preferred supplier for all interim quality jobs. We've since placed an additional two candidates with Hillrom, at 5:1 CV to placement ratio, all of whom have been successful in their posts.

A Hillrom manager commented our consultant is: "the best he has worked within his 25 years at the company".
