DCC
    Background

    DCC is an international sales, marketing, distribution and business support services group with revenues of £10.6 billion. DCC operates across four separate division; DCC Energy, DCC Technology, DCC Healthcare and DCC Environmental.

    Objectives

    We have supported DCC with their graduate recruitment since 2010 – working closely with them to establish their first ever future leaders programme. Together we recruit graduate talent for marketing, logistics, corporate and business IT roles.

    The DCC Graduate Programme is designed for entrepreneurial graduates who want to make it to the highest levels of the commercial world. The programme can be summed up in just four words; ‘challenge’, ‘responsibility’, ‘exposure’ and ‘growth’.

    Solution

    We created a powerful RPO solution to deliver the entrepreneurial future leaders DCC needed. The solution included: creative branding, attraction marketing, microsite development, campaign and candidate management, an applicant tracking system, interviewing and assessment centres.

    The creative branding we developed for DCC was distinctive and confident – entirely reflective of their business. The branding refused to follow the crowd, doing so with clear, simple descriptions and creating wow factors around DCC’s operations, successes and values.

    Our quality assurance team ensured that recruitment processes from application screening to assessment centres were underpinned by a rigorous QA process.

    Results

    The campaign attracted more than 16,000 visits to the microsite, a 24% increase on the previous year.

    Significantly for diversity, the campaign also delivered an increase in applications from BAME candidates.

    Since the inception of the future leaders programme, we have continued to successfully partner with DCC to evolve and manage recruitment.

    The quality and fit of candidates was once again exceptional – enabling DCC to meet their hiring objectives by recruiting the entrepreneurial graduates they need.

    “Amberjack is our trusted recruitment partner and the level of support they provide us is excellent.”
