Applus+ Velosi has positioned itself perfectly in this kind of activity through its Manpower service
The specialists provide a wide range of services, from simply recruiting and employing somebody who is suitable for a particular job, to supervise their work and to take responsibility for their performance. This means a high added value. In Oman
, for example, Applus+ Velosi has been supplying hundreds of inspectors, technicians, engineers and managers for more than 12 years to PDO (Petroleum Development Oman).
Working in the Middle East can be a challenging task. Almost none of the people supplied in the region are locals –the vast majority of them are Indians, Pakistanis or Filipinos–. So there is always a challenge to get enough work visas because the local government aims to generate employ for their own people, but it is actually very difficult to find Saudis or Omanis who have the right qualifications and experience.
Applus+ Velosi maintains regular contact with them and makes sure that they are working safely, that they are properly cared for and that they get paid on time. It makes all the difference as in the Middle East many manpower companies do not pay their employees on time. Additionally, they help to resolve any dispute between the customer and the contractor. This is helpful in order to attract good candidates and to keep them for many years.
As a long term supplier to their customers, Applus+ Velosi tries to understand the objectives, culture and values of the company to provide staff who fit with them. Once they know what their customer wants, they have access to their own network in the region, and also to the databases that collect a big pool of potential candidates. These databases are the first place that manpower specialists look into, since they contain over 600,000 CVs, including an own product, Velosijobs.
platform, supported by artificial intelligence, allows to automate the registration process for candidates, who can send an e-mail to the system and it will automatically read and populate the database. This database can be searched in 3 ways.
In the basic search, the results are given by putting in the search criteria. With the Boolean search, you can write specific scripts to find very specific wording within a CV. And finally, the smart search calculates key word density within a particular candidate’s record and produces a ranking and gives a scored based on what you are looking for.
Applus+ Velosi posts about 200 vacancies and receives 6,000 applications per month through this platform.
