Challenge

RIM were looking to continue their drive to broaden their proposition into new segments including the Consumer marketplace, as well as defining programs that would see their ecosystem / platform further develop.

Solution

As one of our major clients, BigPond Recruitment were appointed to deliver against the above and other key assignments for RIM's Asia-Pacific and European organisations. With an existing, credible track record of delivery into RIM's business at search level, we adopted a specific, discreet approach towards these assignments.

After developing individual briefs, we outlined a targeted approach, mapping all relevant companies and their organisational structures. Utilising GSMA in Barcelona as a venue to conduct all first round screening interviews, we identified and delivered each shortlist within 4 weeks of assignment confirmation.
