Procurement & Supply Chain case study

Skyrocketing a leading aerospace workforce

Our client

The world’s leading aerospace provider wanted Ignata to support a major transformation programme and growth plan.


Initial scope

Our client was going through a major transformation programme as well as an aggressive growth plan; so the decision was made to partner with a recruitment business that would drive process efficiency; improve talent attraction and acquisition; and ultimately hire the best in class within supply chain management and procurement within a renowned candidate short market place and locale.

We began with a research deep-dive, building an industry talent map and exploring the client’s employment brand and reputation. This information powered a top-quality EVP and a fully engaged talent pool, which we used to generate a continuous flow of strong and qualified hires.

Our results

100+ hires a year within supply chain, procurement, quality and engineering roles
