The client had been struggling for a long time to find the right person for a particular role - in fact the position had been open for over a year!
The job required involved setting up software automations which required someone with exceptional knowledge of both Windows and Ansible - a Unix-based open source application-deployment tool. This unusual combination of skills meant it was very difficult to find the right person and several candidates had been previously turned down.
However our recruiter had managed to source someone for a similar role within the same company - one which required some similar technical skills without being quite as niche. Having successfully filled that position, she asked the candidate if they knew anyone in their own network who might suit the very specific needs of this other position. Having worked in a similar environment in the past, he was able to recommend a former colleague who was open to moving into a freelance position.
The recommendation paid off, the candidate was a good match and the client was finally able to fill the position. The manager was delighted to have two contractors on his team delivering high-quality technical work, both brought in by Amoria Bond, and will be coming to us first for future IT hires.
