As you’re probably already aware, it’s not typically the “done” thing in recruitment to be discussing your clients, roles you’ve worked on and positions you’ve filled and we’re not sure why that is. We’re passionate about our client and candidate services and we want to exemplify those more commonly, sharing some of our candidate and client experiences with you.
When we partnered with Kowa a few years ago, they were looking for a Sales Representative in the Ophthalmology space to join their growing team in Germany. We interviewed and screened several candidates and put them forward for the position in a timely manner. After their several in-house interview stages, we were successful in placing Sales Rep Camilla Wirthel in the role.
Since then, Camilla has been a great asset to the business. She’s been promoted three times since she joined them just three years ago and has since been looking to grow her own team. We have stayed in touch on a regular basis and when the time came for her to hire someone into her team, we were delighted to be able to assist her with the position. Several interview stages later, we placed her now colleague into the position.
Here's the review Camilla left us:
“I first spoke with James several years ago as I had just relocated to Germany and needed some support in my job search, so I could continue working in the ophthalmic industry. James specialised in international eyecare recruitment, so he utilised his network and was able to match me with my perfect position, at an exciting company. Fast forward a few years and I have earned three promotions, in as many years and Vision Executives have already placed a top performing sales executive in my team who is thriving and helping us grow to new levels. I would highly recommend the Vision Executives team if you are looking for a new position or hiring for your business!”
