Getting to Know Our Client
Network Rail approached us in 2016 to explain they needed to drive greater revenue from their property portfolio. To do so they needed sharp commercial development talent, but previous recruitment campaigns had been unsuccessful.Network Rail is a well known brand, but not in property development and with some associated stigmas. We needed to learn more of this business to quickly nip in the bud any misunderstandings of the role or culture.

“On engaging Macdonald & Company it was obvious straight away that they took getting to know the clients business very seriously and spent a lot of time in our office getting to know the team and the sort of work that we do.
I have not had this sort of interest in what we do from a recruitment consultant previously. That knowledge enabled them to better market our job opportunities which were at multiple levels and as a result we got a very high quality set of CVs of a better standard than I had expected and of a different level to what we had been able to attract prior to using Macdonalds services. I don’t think that there was a single inappropriate CV so I didn’t have to waste time ploughing through unproductive paperwork. The client care was excellent and I was always kept in the loop on progress particularly where we were up against others to land certain candidates. We are pleased with the quality of candidates we have been able to convert and a number are now working with us. I would happily recommend Macdonalds as a professional, effective and easy to use consultant for those recruiting within the Property Development industry.”
