Mitigating the risk to fulfilment for leading utilities provider npower

Following a challenging period for npower, greenbean was engaged to attract and deliver 40 permanent Customer Advisors to manage increased call volumes.  Uncertainty in the utility market combined with a saturated customer service market area and the time of year, which was the festive period, meant that the risk of candidate drop-out would be higher than usual, so our candidate funnels needed to be wider to mitigate the risk of non-fulfilment.

The Scope

  • Permanent recruitment of high-quality Customer Service Advisors x 40

The Solution

  • Deployed on-site account managed model and off-site central resourcing delivery team

  • Branded, targeted attraction campaign design & management by our in-house marketing team

  • Designed & managed bespoke assessment and selection process including pre-screening, testing, interview, assessment centre and offer management

  • Successful on-boarding facilitation and engagement process

The Result

  • 100% Fulfilment of hires across 3 different departments achieved

  • 238 Pre-screens |142 Telephone interviews | 116 Assessments | 40 Offers | 0 drop-out

  • Awarded exclusive recruitment partner status for all UK-wide volume contact centre and administrative recruitment until npower pulled out of the UK market

“We engaged with greenbean to fulfil a set of requirements our incumbent provider was struggling to meet. They quickly understood our needs, built out the assessment process, and provided quality candidates in a really short space of time. This positive can-do approach means we remain engaged with them for our future needs.”
