Continuous Improvement | Strategic Planning | Value Driven

The rapid advancement of technology, automation, robotics and smarter software has allowed organisations to be more innovative, efficient and cost effective in the manufacturing and engineering sectors strongly focusing on substantial cost savings through more efficient materials sourcing, production and supply chain.

Plum Jobs partners with industrial manufacturing organizations in headhunting and recruitment of leadership and technical roles where our candidates can demonstrate that they have created new business, operating models and structures and are leading initiatives to create continuous improvement environments.

Our candidates are focused on leveraging business opportunities in mature markets, improving productivity and supply chains in a lean environment with lower costs and less resources.

Our senior candidates improve strategic relevance through linking specialisms and corporate strategies. Their strong capabilities in emergency management and business continuity planning, statutory compliance, sustainability and environmental stewardship enable them to overcome inadequate funding, rapid changes in technology, shortages in labor resources.

Strong engineering and technical leadership requires vital competencies like decision making, networking, financial and business skills.

Increasingly we are advising our clients to recruit leadership and managerial candidates who are well-versed not only in technical or engineering skills but also in soft skills such as entrepreneurial thinking, coaching and people development.

By focusing on shortlisting candidates who can demonstrated business and professional skills as well as technical expertise, we are enabling our clients to hire future leaders.

When hiring for leadership and managerial roles, we look for high potential capabilities such as identifying new business opportunities, leading innovation and managing teams and projects effectively.

We recognize that businesses in the engineering and construction value chain  lack the urgency to adopt new technologies and many of them are operating non-profitable business models.

Whether a result of low productivity, poor policies for cost effective and value driven procurement and supply chain and commoditization of products and services with reduced margins, we are working with business leaders to redesign their organization structure, identify critical leadership and specialist roles and hire the right talent to enable them to kick start their transformation to increase productivity and customer value. Many organizations are starting to turn a corner and have started thriving rather than just surviving.

Asset & Facilities Management

The real estate industry is experiencing dramatic changes in land acquisition, new project launches and asset price fluctuations and this is affecting the asset and facilities management sector which must build a more sustainable platform.

With more of a necessity for FM companies to deliver end-to-end integrated FM services, monitor and management energy and sustainability and ensure regulatory compliance, we recruit facilities management managers who are people centric who know how to add value in all stages of the user interaction process.

We believe that facilities management professionals need to evolve beyond engineering and administration skills and focus more on delivering more environmentally friendly sustainable living and working spaces. They need to recognize and demonstrate the value and ROI of effective integrated facility management.

When shortlisting our candidates, we focus on business and soft skills ranging from strategy, design thinking, people, change readiness and technology capabilities. Naturally, we do not consider these to a replacement of the engineering competence they need to have but more as a requirement for today’s integrated FM business models.

As FM operating models become more integrated to address changes in building and safety regulations and green buildings, organizations are focused on cost reduction and service efficiency. Increasingly we are working with more FM companies, as the demand for experienced facility managers who can manage the complexity of multiple services through higher calibre FM teams.

Our executive search and recruitment expertise extends to construction, hard, soft and integrated FM service providers, real estate developers, contractors and STRATA property management.

As today’s commercial and residential landscape has changed dramatically we partner with facilities and asset management companies to build an environment and workforce that integrates their services to reflect their brand through their strategy and culture.

Leadership competencies and behaviours result in high performing teams and increased business performance.

We know that effective employee development is achieved through practical application and work and real-life scenarios. We specialize in experiential learning to propel leadership and business skills development.

Our interactive action learning programs enable you to shape your leadership style and capabilities to foster innovation, problem solving and engaging and developing your teams.

Recognizing that high-potential employees have the ability, aspiration and engagement to progress and succeed in more senior and critical roles, we deliver tailormade programs for individuals to gain a deeper insight into themselves, learn how to manage others and develop business skills.

By the end of our leadership and business skills programs, you will be equipped to make a high-impact contribution to your organization and these skills can be applied in any industry.
