The Scenario:

A Swedish company expands into Australia
A company based in Sweden with operations in Indonesia and China was looking to expand into Australia.

The Action:

Company approaches a local Indonesian recruiter
The firm approached was an NPAworldwide member based in Indonesia and shared the job opening with other NPAworldwide members in search of support. The job was in Brisbane and with the help of a Brisbane-based NPAworldwide partner, two candidates were identified.

The process was complex, drawn-out and at times difficult. It involved an Indonesia member firm with the job, Swedish client with HR managers in China and Singapore, a job in Brisbane and candidates from Iran and the UK, working with a Brisbane-based NPAworldwide placement partner firm. Managers flew in from Europe and Asia for the interviews.

The Result:

NPAworldwide Works!
There was one job, but the client was delighted with the quality of candidates presented that two candidates were hired! The Brisbane member is now starting work on a 3rd vacancy in Australia.
