Amrop Turkey was assigned to an executive search assignment by a European-based multinational Real Estate Development company to find a Technical Director who would manage all of the organisation’s construction projects in Turkey. This executive was required to hold experience in construction and project management under FIDIC contract conditions in addition to strong site experience in order to coordinate site operations.
Amrop focused on project managers and technical coordinators of local large-scale contractors who had worked in an international joint venture project, especially in the Middle East, the Turkic Republics and Eastern Europe. Amrop also targeted Turkish technical managers and project coordinators of Middle East and Eastern Europe operations in the USA and European based large contractors.
During the search, more than 200 professionals were contacted and more than 40 people were interviewed in order to determine the right professional in a very short space of time. At the end of the 6 week period, four candidates were presented after all the interviews were completed, although several candidates were working at overseas projects or travelling frequently.
