The Challenge
Our client, a leading Tier 1 automotive supplier, was working on several innovative technology projects for two prominent German OEMs. These projects included incorporating LiDAR technology into the OEM’s products. Since our client had not previously incorporated these technologies into the OEM’s product line, they did not have the internal knowledge nor the resources needed to meet tight project deadlines. In an effort to maintain their competitive advantage within the market, our client required a partner to mitigate these resource gaps.

The Solution
Oxford Global Resources’ dedicated account management team and subject matter experts met with the client onsite to fully understand the requirements and develop a customized recruiting plan. We deployed our European-based recruiters who specialize in the automotive industry, and they were able to quickly source quality resources to support the projects. We deployed over 20 mid to senior-level consultants to the client’s two German locations. The skills included:

  • Project Managers
  • Requirements Engineers
  • Software Developers
  • Software Testers
  • Cybersecurity Engineers

The Result

By mitigating the resource gaps and saving the client time on reviewing, screening, and interviewing candidates, Oxford enabled the project to progress on time and within the budget, despite the tight monthly and quarterly deadlines from the OEMs. Our ability to rapidly source consultants meant that the client was able to ramp up their project with minimal delays. Because the candidates were well suited to support the initiative, the client retained 98% of all consultants deployed throughout the initial duration of the project. The client also selected us to continue placing resources throughout the new phase of this multi-million dollar project, as well as to support additional projects within the client’s IT department.
