A global investment bank have recently established a software development centre in Guangzhou to support their global banking & market (investment bank) business. They envisage hiring 700+ new employees across 2017 and are planning to transfer most of their global GBM IT functions to China and India.
PageGroup was selected to partner on the initial stage of the project in May 2016, which focused on a prioritised list of 80+ positions, ranging from junior software engineers through to senior architect/project managers. We assisted our client in structuring their new project recruitment methodology, where our dedicated team, which includes an account director, account manager, a senior consultant and three specialist consultants, would take the lead in the hiring process up until offer stage. Our project team provides weekly reporting, regular calls with HR in the UK, Hong Kong and China and dedicates two half days onsite for meetings with line managers.
It has been a very successful project so far, with our team placing 130 candidates across China from May to December 2016.
