Pickle Robot – Vice President of AI

The Client

A robotic arm solution provider for truck loading required a VP of AI to advance the autonomy of their solution and grow the business’s AI division.

The Challenge:

The business enlisted Gillespie Manners following obstacles in their own recruitment process. They had put offers out to candidates which had been rejected due to counter-offers, and needed a partner to help bring candidates over the line successfully and manage potential objections. Through their internal recruitment channel, the business had an acceptance rate of circa 50%.

The Solution:

Consultants from the Gillespie Manners specialist robotics automation practice leveraged an expansive network of passive talent, and unique headhunting methodology to identify a shortlist of high-caliber candidates who weren’t previously known to the client’s internal talent acquisition team. The Gillespie Manners team were involved throughout the interview, offer and negotiation process to ensure that no candidates were lost or dropped out. An offer was made and accepted successfully first time.
