Bede Gaming: Recruiting talented tech experts

Bede Gaming is a leading supplier of software to the online gambling and social gaming industries, with ambitious plans for the future.

Bede has built a highly flexible, open architecture-gambling platform designed to meet the demands of customers who want a single wallet solution that operates seamlessly across all platforms, whether mobile, tablet, or web. The platform is fully scalable and is built to handle millions of transactions per day.

The Brief

During a significant period of growth, Bede Gaming needed to increase their workforce to take their business to the next level.

To meet the expanding demand of Bede’s services they required a high volume of skilled and experienced team members in a relatively short period. It was important to Bede to engage with a recruitment partner who could manage the recruitment process from beginning to end, allowing their HR team to focus on growth strategies and engagement with current Bede employees.

The Approach

Bede took the decision to adopt NRG’s Recruitment Partnership Model, securing a proactive and concentrated approach to recruitment.

This model provided a transparent and thorough recruitment solution. As part of the collaboration, Bede received regular updates on activity levels and support to extend the reach and appeal of their employer brand both across the region and nationally.

The Result

NRG took a proactive approach and established the culture and values of the business from the outset. With this knowledge and understanding, NRG were able to identify candidates who matched Bede’s technical requirements whilst ensuring a strong culture fit which in turn enabled successful candidates to make an immediate impact. This truly integrated approach ensured a successful and effective partnership.

Using strong networks in the digital arena, NRG worked to “bank talent” allowing Bede to shortlist and interview the best candidates who could demonstrate experience and knowledge of working with technological start-ups ahead of strategic projects.

NRG helped to source a number of new employees from Customer Service Advisors, Application Support, .Net Developers, Automation Testers to Senior Systems Administrators.

All NRG appointees have made a significant contribution to the business; these proficient, experienced, and capable individuals have helped Bede to move closer to their goals.

Andy Thompson, HR Manager, Bede Gaming comments on the partnership, “NRG twinned effective implementation with an eagerness to learn about our business creating an effective, productive and beneficial way to manage our employee requirements. NRG were embedded into our business, immersing themselves in the culture and embracing our industry. Candidates have been an ideal fit for our business and have brought a significant level of expertise gained in similar organisations just as we requested.

As Bede Gaming continues to grow and develop, we need a recruitment partner that not only understands our core business but also has extensive experience in the wider technology sector. NRG offer the true integrated team approach to recruitment partnerships that Bede feel is vital to ensure a successful and effective collaboration. I would recommend NRG’s Recruitment Partnership Model without hesitation. They are knowledgeable, consultative in their approach, and responsive to challenging recruitment needs.”
