Border Biscuits

Over the last few months, we’ve helped several companies in Scotland find the right candidates for their interim positions. But there was one brand in particular that we were keen to work with – Border Biscuits.

After sending an introductory email to their team, they were quick to respond and chat to us about their staffing requirements. The business was searching for an interim technical manager to lead their technical department and set the standard for food safety and hygiene.

Read on to discover how we helped Border Biscuits find the most suitable person for the role.


The solution

Following our email conversation, we had an in-depth discussion about their specific recruitment needs and expectations. Once we knew what they were looking for, we got to work sourcing candidates who would be a perfect fit for the job. Later that same day, we’d selected four professionals with varied backgrounds and experience, and sent their CVs over to Border Biscuits.

We were quick to set up interviews with these individuals, and there was one person who instantly clicked with the team. Their initial interview was a huge success. They were eager to work for the business, and our client had nothing but positive feedback. In a matter of days, they began their new role.


The results

It’s been just over a month since the interim candidate we selected joined Border Biscuits, and after visiting the site, it’s clear to see that they’re loving every minute of it. It seems like a fantastic place to work and you can tell they genuinely care about their employees. They’ve settled into the business seamlessly, and we couldn’t be happier with how this project turned out. Overall, we’ve built a great relationship with the team at Border Biscuits and we can’t wait to work with them again in the coming months.

“My experience with Silven has been extremely positive from the initial response through to interview preparation and interview feedback. Steph was extremely supportive through my interview process with clear communication skills. I would work with Silven on future projects.”Suzanne Mackinnon, Interim Technical Manager at Border Biscuits.

“Working with Silven has been nothing but positive so far. Steph really understood the initial brief and provided great candidates first go and promptly. She’s been very flexible with any changes through the process and has always been quick to come back to us and work around us. We’re excited to continue working with Silven moving forwards.”Catriona Meakin, HR Manager at Border Biscuits.
