In normal practice, NAC advertise internal positions directly. However, gaining suitably qualified candidates for technically niche, commercial roles proved to be a constant struggle.

Although averse to using recruitment agencies due to previous experience, with recommendation we employed Ark Talent to help us.

They took the time to understand our business model and position needs, and found a number of very relevant candidates for us. We were interviewing contenders within a few weeks and the whole process, including several interview stages, and notice period, was really efficient from start to finish

NAC will certainly look to Ark Talent for recruitment help in the future.
