Placing IT candidates in remote locations for 3 months

Filling IT roles for the salt mining industry 

The story 

New salt mine construction 

A large international IT services corporation needed to supply technical support specialists in multiple, often remote, locations across Canada to support large infrastructure rollouts associated with new salt mine construction projects. 


The challenge 

Placing candidates in remote locations 

Our client needed technical support specialists to help with product rollouts, reimaging and operating system migrations for various remote locations including Isle de la Madeleine (North Atlantic island), Montreal, Saskatoon, Regina. It was extremely difficult finding candidates who were willing to relocate to these locations for a two-to-three month duration. 

The solution 

A commitment to excellence 

Hays was the sole supplier of IT professionals for them where the roles were promoted through social channels and After the success of the first three placements, the client placed trust in Hays to find the remaining candidates independently and complete the compliance requirements on behalf of both them and Hays. We ensured that all candidates were highly skilled and committed to carry out work under minimal supervision. Workers were sourced, placed and fully supported by Hays throughout their entire relocation journey. 


Our client was so pleased with the results that they wanted to continue working with Hays for filling future positions. They were able to complete all projects on schedule in which all of the new hires completed their contracts with superb references, and has seen the following results: 

  • 50+ candidates interviewed 
  • 100% compliance success rate 
  • 15 jobs filled
