Turnkey submarine network solutions provider: Two-decades of success

The firm is the world’s only fully integrated provider of turnkey submarine network solutions.  The Greenwich-based company designs and manufactures submerged oceanic Fibre Optic cable amplifier systems which requires a range of highly skilled professionals.

Historically the company had struggled to source test development engineers, a niche expertise that was in short supply and high demand. As a business that has developed a competitive employer brand and places huge value on cultural fit, knowing that it was working with an agency that is dedicated to developing high value and long-standing relationships with candidates was crucial. The fact that Mane has been working with the provider for over 20 years now is testament to its positive contractor experience.

Throughout the course of the relationship, Mane has worked with the provider across the entire manufacturing life cycle providing project managers, buyers, production engineers, test development engineers and electro-mechanical assemblers. Currently the recruitment company has in excessive of 20 white collar and shop floor contractors with firm.

The success of this account is undoubtedly due to Mane’s focus on getting to know the company inside out. On top of its extensive knowledge of the manufacturing and engineering arena, it has become an extension of the team. The consultants are regularly on-site, getting to know the managers involved with each assignment, what their individual needs are, how these tie in with the overall business strategy and what the company is like to work for.  In addition, Mane introduced trade tests for all potential recruits to ensure they not only have the required skill sets, but also have a smooth interview process.

There’s no doubt that Mane’s focus on getting to know the business and deliver a top-notch candidate experience has had a crucial role to play in this long-standing relationship which continues to go from strength-to-strength.
