The sky’s the limit for an innovative recruitment campaign between two leading Scottish businesses
LEADING Scottish recruitment business, Eden Scott, has engaged with Skyscanner on an ambitious recruitment drive to help the fast-growing business attract and secure 20 of the best software developers in the UK and Continental European labour market.
Skyscanner has quickly become a top travel search site, and, as part of its 2013 growth strategy, they have enlisted the expert services of Eden Scott’s Information Technology division to in order to help facilitate their growth.
This partnership stems from a long-standing and proven relationship between the two Scottish brands. Eden Scott’s IT Division will champion the project.
The partnership goes beyond typical arms-length recruitment services.
Eden Scott has two dedicated, highly-skilled consultants working directly out of Skyscanner’s head office in the prestigious Quartermile in Edinburgh.
Eden Scott has been integral to the design and delivery of the recruitment campaign, which has embraced an innovative digital and social media strategy.
On successful completion of the campaign, the new members of the technical team will have the opportunity to make a major impact on the continued development of Skyscanner’s amazing software used by millions of people around the world.
David Hunter, global recruitment and resourcing manager at Skyscanner, is enthusiastic to develop and grow the organisation’s technical team.
He said: “This partnership with Eden Scott will see us using social media and modern recruitment techniques in new ways to reach into technical talent pools to provide candidates with outstanding career opportunities at Skyscanner.”
Director of Eden Scott, Mark Durham, is delighted to be part of this exciting partnership.
He said: “We have been working with the Skyscanner team for several years now and it’s fantastic to see a young Scottish company grow to be such a successful international enterprise.
“Whilst this project will be challenging, we are confident we will be able to reach out and engage with the best talent throughout the world.
“The pooling of our digital expertise will allow both parties to highlight the opportunity and showcase for current job-seekers and passive candidates the combined power of Skyscanner as a superb Employer Brand, along with the added attraction of the move to Edinburgh and Scotland.
About Eden Scott
Eden Scott was established ten years ago and now deploys around seventy people across offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. The business delivers a range of often complex recruitment solutions in both Professional and Technical staffing markets with a close focus on Scotland’s technology start-up and SME sectors.
Despite the more recent backdrop of the credit crunch and depressed Western markets, there exist a number of acute shortages of expertise in certain key talent areas and the business invests much time, money and resource in ensuring we continue to identify, engage and deliver scarce skillsets to a varied client base.
The digital medium offers the business a superb opportunity to engage and communicate with software developers in a variety of countries and we see this channel as becoming critically more important as the ‘War for Talent’ develops.
