Case study

Placing hard-to-find candidates

+ 30 appointments
Retained work
Trilingual requirement

We have been the recruitment partner of choice for Trina Solar globally for a number of years, placing +30 professionals across their offices in EMEA, APAC and LATAM.

We were retained to source and select a trilingual (Spanish, Mandarin and English) CFO for their newly acquired solar tracker systems company, Nclave.

This was a challenging role with a host of requirements – an uncommon languages portfolio, C-level exposure in finance, company acquisitions experience, and team management of both Spanish and Chinese colleagues.

However we successfully delivered a shortlist of 5 candidate profiles and ultimately secured a high calibre candidate to join the management team.
