Driving foreign investment for the province
In support of economic development and global competitiveness, the provincial ministry responsible for business development retained Mandrake’s executive search services to find ideal candidates for the role of in-market business consultant. This consultant represents the province of Ontario abroad, in their home country, promoting foreign investment, supporting development, and cultivating leading-edge initiatives while ensuring stability, prosperity, and global competitiveness. Drawing on experience recruiting international candidates on behalf of the Ontario government, we had proven strategies at our disposal.
Contracted by the Trade and Investment Division of the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, Mandrake was asked to recruit 20 international candidates for the role of in-market business development consultant and in-market trade development consultant.
Our search strategy was extremely efficient given the complexity of the assignment and less than 30 days to accomplish our goal. Mandrake targeted foreign business consultants with expertise in automotive, advanced technologies, health sciences, and natural resources. Organized by country and industry focus, Mandrake maintained full transparency to the client during recruitment, leveraging leading-edge technology to connect all parties to the process.
The executive search spanned seven countries and four continents. Mandrake managed the entire end-to-end process, screening candidates in eleven cities in 21 days. Proudly, we presented a shortlist of exceptional people for each project, on time and on budget.
