Contract Solutions for a Workday® End-User

A Workday® End-User in the UK were in urgent need of talent for their team, so they partnered with Focus on WD to identify exactly which skills were needed, and the length of contracts needed for this particular project.

During the last quarter of 2018 we were approached by an organisation based in London. They had heard of our work and the network we have access to, so reached out regarding the need for several urgent contract requirements.

The Challenge

We had to begin initially by building a full idea of their project so far, the future of the project and their business critical requirements for the project. 

It became apparent that the client would need at least 3 contract individuals immediately, to ensure the project continued its predicted trajectory and prevent any expensive hold ups.

The Solution

We got to work straight away, with our specialist UK team engaging those in their network. They initially shortlisted, screened, and sent over 6 suitable Workday® contract candidates within 48 hours. 

All candidates were suitable for the role, and it just came down to preference for the client. 3 of these candidates were then taken through the process and offered 6 month contracts, with a view to extending further.

The Result

The whole process, including the starting of each contractor, took no more than 10 weeks. This may seem like a long time in the contracting world, however this client was switched on from the beginning, and knew when they would need their contractors to start to ensure the smooth running of their project.

Being able to have an honest conversation regarding the timelines of the project enabled a clear and transparent line of communication between us. This helped us to effectively inform the client and act in more of a consulting manor.
