Background

WilliamsLeaTag now re-branded as Tag, a multinational global leader in Marketing Execution and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) with 10,000+ worldwide employees but previously only client service teams based in Korea. Due to business growth and expansion of APAC region, client decided to recruit a full-time BD Director to build out the Korean business and leverage partnerships with global Korean clients.

 

RDI Permanent Hiring Engagement

Our local team has a diverse background which brings different perspectives to hiring unique positions for global companies in Korea. Especially if the role is newly created then there are no obvious direct sources that can be utilised. RDI’s approach was to seek a broad range of candidates possessing the global client experience as well as B2B end-to-end client solutions in a marketing context. We used direct and indirect channels to source suitable candidates.

 

Outcome

We were able to shortlist a strong batch of candidates who met the client’s criteria and as always, almost every one was invited for interview. We believe that providing only the right candidates is best for our clients. After successful interview process by Regional Management a final offer was made to one candidate who accepted and RDI supported both candidate and client until everything was complete.

 

Client Experience Feedback

“RDI Worldwide was a great partner for Tag in sourcing the ideal Director level talent for the Korean market. We used RDI recruiting services to find a Business Development Director and we were satisfied by the professionalism and spirit of partnership they displayed throughout the process. As we were recruiting the role from abroad, RDI’s strong local market knowledge was invaluable, as was their clear and timely communication; keeping us informed at every turn. The candidate shortlist they presented back to us was strong, and the journey through to final selection, offer and closing the chosen candidate was smooth.”
