Supplier, risk and project service delivery
Telenet Group is the largest provider of cable broadband services in Belgium. Its business comprises the provision of analog and digital cable television, fixed and mobile telephone services, primarily to residential customers in Flanders and Brussels. In addition, Telenet offers services to business customers all across Belgium and in Luxembourg under its brand Telenet Solutions.
Telenet had a challenging requirement for a consultant to lead their project service delivery. This person would be responsible for managing the relationship with their wholesale business unit, dealing closely with third party suppliers, project management and risk management. It was a very difficult role to fill as it was difficult to find someone who had the required experience within a tier-one telecoms operator. The candidate also had to be willing to be based primarily in Brussels.
Three people were identified for the role from our network and presented to the client. All three candidates we shortlisted were put forward for interview. One candidate was eventually successful and offered the role.
The placed candidate has added tremendous value to the programme he was working on. He not only completed that assignment but was moved onto another part of the project as well in which he added further value to the customer.
