Soliant Health is a leading healthcare HR solutions company in the USA. Wayne Memorial Hospital in Jesup, Georgia, started a trial hospitalist programme, managed by Soliant, in 2008. Hospitalists, a fairly new category of health professional, are physicians who care for patients while they are in hospital, working in partnership with their family doctor. The on-going partnership with Soliant has helped Wayne Memorial train and educate all their staff and recruit full-time hospitalists with the right skills and background. Before joining in 2008, Dr. Frank Cook had a private practice for nearly 30
years. First recruited by Soliant as a part-time hospitalist, he is a strong advocate of this innovative medical role and now works closely with Soliant in recruiting further talents for Wayne Memorial.
"I was looking for a full-time hospitalist position as the right step in my career and I jumped at this opportunity."

GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals is a leading developer of vaccines, handling multiple projects in parallel.
GSK Biologicals urgently needed a clinical development manager for a pneumococcal vaccine development project. It asked XPE Pharma & Science to help select and recruit an experienced physician
with a strong clinical research background – no easy task in Belgium. Managing Director Johan Lauwers took the call. He cast his net wide and discovered Dr. Ana Strezova in Macedonia, who was willing to move to Belgium. She had excellent qualifications and GSK Biologicals hired her for this strategic external contract position, initially
for six months, but potentially for many years.
"I can contribute to a vital area of healthcare and gain professional experience in an international

Travers Smith, a long-established London legal firm, instructed Badenoch & Clark to recruit a banking lawyer. Badenoch & Clark is a UK-based recruitment partner for accounting, finance, banking, financial services, change management, HR, IT, legal, marketing and public sector recruitment. Kate Dickens was the ideal candidate for Travers Smith. The biggest challenge was steering her through the process while she had an offer from a competing law firm and was being invited to interviews by rival recruiters. Travers Smith was the best choice for her given their quality of work, market position and collegiate environment. In the end, Kate was made an offer immediately following three rounds of interviews.
" My recruitment consultant focused on what I valued in a law firm, steering me exactly where I wanted to go."

When leading French food retailer Groupe Casino moved most of its HQ to Paris, it did not include HR. Adecco filled the gap, recruiting candidates for diverse positions. The quality of people Adecco provides is key. Like Véronique Malarmey. Groupe Casino needed an assistant for its management team, someone resourceful with experience - Véronique started work days after the interview.
That was back in 2008. Véronique has been working on assignment with Adecco since then.
"I guess the combination of experience and openness – being willing and quick to learn – is my great asset. Adecco recognised this and opened doors for me."
Véronique Malarmey, Executive Assistant
