Feedback summary: 

The team members found by CNA International are excellent, shaping and growing the new office. They communicated well throughout the project, managing the back-and-forth well, and demonstrating their professionalism, integrity, and strong ethics throughout.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

LoveCrafts is an IT firm headquartered in London, UK. I’m a business manager in the Kiev office.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CNA International?

My task was to build the Kiev office from the ground up. There was nothing in place, so I worked with colleagues in London to set up the office, hire staff, and build business processes. A big challenge was to find technical staff for our development processes. We had to hire a lot of programmers and testers, and I didn’t have that much experience sourcing these people.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided them with a list of our openings, then they worked with our CTO to find candidates. They found around 15 technical people for our office, including front- and backend developers, testers, and some senior roles. We sourced all the non-IT positions ourselves, although I’m sure they could’ve handled those as well.

The process was a collective effort, with lots of interviews involved. CNA did the original screening, reached out to possible candidates from their network, and found a lot of developers. They presented us with a list of suitable candidates, to whom our hiring manager talked. If someone fit our profile, they would be put in contact with our CTO or CEO for another interview, of which there would be three or four, with the final one involving a meeting with our team in Kiev.

What is the team composition?

They had different people on their team responsible for certain positions. We preferred email communication, given that our company is split between London and Kiev. Their account managers responded to our requests swiftly, but with well-thought-out and researched messages. We understood why they needed to take a bit more time to respond at times, and we appreciated it.

How did you come to work with CNA International?

My colleague had recommended CNA International to her as a reliable talent agency. I met with them, and they made a good impression on me as a professional company.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in August 2016, and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They focused on the IT positions that were hard to find, and they did a great job. CNA has helped us find two of our lead programmers, who’ve brought an immense amount of value, not only to the Kiev office, but to the whole company. They’re both senior people who are great leaders and have helped build the Kiev office to be as successful as it is.

How did CNA International perform from a project management standpoint?

They never made empty promises and managed our expectations well; they were honest about the whole process. If our budget wasn’t enough for a certain position, they would present us with data from the market and let us know how much other companies were offering. Conversely, they also looked for resources below the budgets we set. They had the integrity to let us know when we didn’t need to pay as much as we were offering. Everyone appreciated this attitude and their values.

They have people on staff who speak really good English, which was important as there was a lot of back-and-forth on any changes in the requirements. They sometimes felt like a part of our company, especially when there were many urgent positions to fill.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their values and professionalism are impressive.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They need to keep up the level of service they provide. It’s not easy to offer that to all clients, and they’ve had their challenges, like any other business. There are many different recruitment agencies in Kiev, which can make it hard to compete at times.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

It’s important to work together. The expectation that a company can give an open remit to the recruitment agency and just wait for a final result, is just wrong. To find the right person, constant collaboration is needed.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

After listening to feedback, the CNA International IT team improved the resources they found and provided good candidates for interview. They were dedicated, professional partners that always kept on top of the project’s progress.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a software company that provides an enterprise solution for restaurant chains of all sizes, primarily in the US. I’m the tech and development manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CNA International IT?

Our company had grown, so we needed more and more people. I was involved in the hiring process back then, but it was taking too much of my time on top of my other responsibilities. We decided to involve a hiring company in the process, and we went to CNA.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided several candidates to us, and we interviewed each one, explained our expectations, and went back to CNA with feedback. They improved their selection based on that. Shortly, we reached a good agreement, and they provided adequate candidates for us to interview.

What is the team composition? 

The process was handled by me and a senior developer on our side using a Skype group with CNA.

How did you come to work with CNA International IT?

I Googled “IT recruitment companies” and found CNA, along with a few others. They had the most appealing presentation.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from June–November 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

After a learning period in the beginning, they provided adequate candidates for our descriptions. We were able to fill all our vacancies within a short timeframe. They’re the first company we’ll go to when we open new positions.

How did CNA International IT perform from a project management standpoint?

Our previous hiring company wasn’t performing well in terms of timing and management, which is why we looked for a new one. CNA was very different; they always made us aware if we’d missed something.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their humanity was the most impressive thing. The team isn’t out just to make money; they also tried to be our friends.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Anyone can improve, and we’ve discussed this with CNA. They heard us and implemented the changes to the search that we wanted.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

It’s important to have an open conversation. We’ve had a good collaboration with CNA in which they answered all our questions and provided more information than requested. There’s nothing specific that another client should know.

Feedback summary: 

The team has fielded numerous successful candidates by optimizing internal staffing workflows. CNA International IT leverages their in-house CRM to meet end customers’ needs and provide timely feedback to all parties. They are selective and transparent in their search process.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the head of research and development at P-Product, an IT company. We’re a software development services provider.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CNA International IT?

We needed help with IT recruitment for outsourced projects. We tried to use an in-house recruitment office, but the technology stack was very difficult to manage on our own.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

CNA International IT recruits senior-level developers for our projects. They give us resumes and CVs of potential candidates; the team also addresses any questions, issues, or concerns. The team conducts the initial interview. They vet candidates’ English language skills and competencies with specific technology stacks. We do the secondary interviews to assess candidates' personal qualities, as well as technical and soft skills. The main account manager specializes in certain technology stacks like .NET, machine learning, computer vision, and mobile development. We currently have two open positions that the team is recruiting for.

What is the team composition?

Each account manager leads a certain branch of software engineering. They have a number of researchers, but we communicate with the main account manager only. We communicate with the head of the company, the business development manager, and the finance manager.

How did you come to work with CNA International IT?

One of our former remote recruiters recommended CNA International IT because they specialized in senior developer positions.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2017 and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The partnership has been great because the team has optimized our internal process and built out missing workflows. The team redeveloped our existing recruitment process and their CRM system to keep track of candidates and provide timely feedback. Most of the candidates have successfully passed our customer interviews.

How did CNA International IT perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re organized and responsive. Every question or request we send gets a reply within 30 minutes. If the team needs more time to research a question, they let us know and estimate the extra time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re effective because they don’t forward candidates that lack skills or reliability. We’re completely satisfied with the results of their work. If certain specialists don’t exist in our market, they’re transparent and tell us that is the case. We can then choose another region to find the right candidate.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The team should give faster feedback because each company conducts interviews on their side. Likewise, if the customer provides fast feedback for each interviewed candidate, it will increase customer satisfaction with CNA International IT.

Feedback summary: 

Professional and responsive, CNA International IT was a collaborative partner that took ownership of the project. They successfully recruited highly-skilled candidates that met specific guidelines. The team’s trustworthiness was a defining feature of the partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a talent acquisition specialist for an IT firm. We are an open-source database and performance solutions organization.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CNA International IT?

We wanted to staff our company with skilled resources from Eastern Europe.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

CNA International IT made full-time direct hires for our company’s technical openings. We put specific and robust requirements in place for ideal candidates. These positions included engineering and database administration. As a global remote organization, we held lengthy interview processes to ensure the candidates would fit with our collaborative approach and work-from-home environment. Several internal stakeholders were involved in the interview process.

What is the team composition?

I worked with one of the owners and a business development representative.

How did you come to work with CNA International IT?

My company hired them before I joined the organization. They knew our founders and I continued that relationship.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $10,000–$15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in May 2016 and the partnership ended in February 2018. We’ve since handed over European staffing to our in-house team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

CNA International IT was completely engaged and ensured that candidates’ skill sets matched our requirements. They had a close relationship with their candidates, which helped us assess each potential hire. What’s more, the team delivered for the Eastern European market; I would hire them again for that region. They maintained our trusting relationship with open communication, no matter how the process unfolded. That strong bond between teams was important for a staffing partnership.

How did CNA International IT perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated via Skype, phone, and messaging to offset the volume of email in my inbox. The team was professional, prompt, and responsive. They used email only as a secondary point of contact.

What did you find most impressive about them?

CNA International IT took pride in their work and ownership over the process. Their staffing approach included recruitment events across Europe. The team didn’t just find candidates; they created a whole culture around the tech space.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. We are in a niche field with a small market of talent and expertise. There’s nothing the team could have done to increase that pool because we expect candidates’ skill sets to be exceptionally deep and wide.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Set up a video chat with CNA International IT to understand their process and the relevant talent pool. That interaction will create a great foundation for the rest of the relationship. They work hard for all of their clients.

Feedback summary: 

The team consistently provides high-quality candidates, by far exceeding the services of the other companies also engaged by the client. They are an excellent team to work with a friendly, informal communication style and quick response times, though it would be good if the team could grow.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the operations manager for an audio system manufacturer. Our main product is an audio plugin for producers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CNA International IT?

We needed digital signal processing (DSP) engineers, who are difficult to find in our country.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They recruited DSP engineers and C++ developers for us. They developed the profiles by asking us questions to ensure that we got the best results.

What is the team composition?

They have a project manager and several recruiters on the team. They assigned a recruiter for me to work with.

How did you come to work with CNA International IT?

I Googled a few companies and started work with five companies, including CNA. Most of the companies weren’t as active or good as CNA, which is the company I’m the most comfortable with. They’re professional and know how to communicate. 99% of the candidates that we started to work with were from CNA, so I realized that I was wasting my time with the other companies.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $30,000 - $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in May 2014 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

All of their candidates were good; the best of all the companies we worked with. They provided us with 10–15, most of whom stayed with us for at least two to three years, and some of them are still with us.

How did CNA International IT perform from a project management standpoint?

I had a very good experience with the candidate from this year—she’s very understanding, accurate, and has great attention to detail. With the other companies, there’s a lot of time wasted, but with CNA we communicate effectively by phone and Telegram. They’re very responsible and responsive, and are generally nice, pleasant people.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The quality of candidates is the most impressive. They have good communication skills and are very professional yet friendly and informal. They’re very comfortable to work with.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It’d be good if they were bigger, then I would recommend them to someone. I’d like them to grow and keep their level of professionalism so that they can offer more services. They will be honest if they can’t fill a position.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

No.
