Our HR initially set up the relationship after we had difficulty filling a Quality Engineer position in my team. The relationship with Panda was excellent from the beginning.What I like most about Panda and their consultants, more than other companies, is that they actually listen to my feedback and improve results upon it.I really notice that other parties keep sending candidates that are available, but not necessarily the ones that are the best match. Again, the consultants at Panda are very good listeners and adjusts their course accordingly, but they are also not afraid to let me know what is realistic or not. I would strongly recommend Panda.
QA / RA Manager
Within the biopharmaceutical contract industry, you need to act fast. Panda was able to deliver a shortlist of good candidates fast.The interactions with the Panda consultants was very good. We are very pleased with their support and professionality and certainly will consider them for future assignments.
Chief Development Officer
Working with Panda is very positive, they are specialists in their markets and they deliver. They are quick to respond to my queries, knowledgeable about the market and think with us on potential solutions.The profiles that we received were all of a very high standard and included individual rapports on candidate skillset and emotional intelligence. This really helped to make decisions easy on who is the best fit for us, also culturally which is very important to Fonterra. In the end, we’ve made a successful hire through Panda.I highly recommend working with Panda.
Working with Panda is reliable, professional and they are very strong in terms of content. The candidate who Panda quickly sentturned out to be perfect. Panda really excelled in speed.They immediately managed to put the right candidate on the table. What Panda also had on paper in terms of capacities turned out to be possible to determine in practice.That says something about Panda, but it also says something about the quality of the candidates they work with. The candidate has to do it eventually. The flexibility of both candidate and Panda was fantastic.Panda later also helped me with a new project, this time at Bettinehoeve. There I am now working on a very large project such as the Production Manager & Lead Production Excellence.
Randstad Sourceright works at Philips with different levels of suppliers. Panda International has moved up to Gold supplier within 1.5 years, which is one level below the highest level.When I see internally that our Diamond suppliers cannot fill a position, I often see that Panda is the supplier who still knows how to fill in the job, and it is nice to know that we can trust and build on that.The contact with Panda, in general, is very pleasant and they follow up regularly.
I have been working at Amgen for 3 years now and I did not have any reservations about working with Panda because of its quality of service.
The main benefits Amgen has experienced working with Panda are, high quality candidates with the right background for Amgen's positions.
The recruitment consultants are also thinking along with us in terms of processes, market insights and what would be best for our long-term goals. We feel like they understand our industry as well as our requirements extremely well.
After our ongoing collaboration, I would definitely recommend working with Panda.
Santen started working together with Panda International in March 2021 for the recruitment of multiple positions in Regulatory Affairs and others in Global Safety Vigilance, Clinical Data, Analytical Support EMEA & Logistics EMEA position based in the Netherlands.
The recruiter at Panda was a great partner throughout the hiring process due to the following: they were quick in proposing candidates, efficient, available for alignment calls on the roles, worked closely with Santen and knew how to adapt the recruitment process to their needs.
We had an excellent experience and are glad to have worked with Panda International. We will recommend them internally in the future if necessary.”
Since November 2020 I re-joined Sonion as an Interim HR Business Partner as a maternity cover starting with the major recruitment project for the R&D expansion.
Later, in March 2021, I stepped up to take on the Interim HR Manager role. My focus from the start has been on working together to get the right staff members on board.
Working with Ivor has been a great pleasure. He filled the gap between Sonion and finding the right candidates. From the start, it has been a mutual goal and intense and honest collaboration. It saves Sonion a lot of time. Ivor knows what he is talking about and fully understands the recruitment business. Ivor knew what Sonion required, understood our business, thinks along with us and always had (positive) critical questions. Ivor keeps his word and follows up on his actions openly and transparently. Panda International is not an ordinary recruitment agency shifting resumes.
Ivor is eager to finish what he starts and stays committed to. Communication has been very open and honest which supported the speed in the procedures."
