11 What we achieved and what they said about us 13500 people offered a Games time job either with LOCOG or their sub contractor “We needed to recruit a team of 3,000 people to deliver a large scale catering service and had some reservations as to how many we could source via the host borough network and what the quality of the candidates would be like. The Host Borough network attracted and screened the candidates well and we experienced a very high conversion rate from interview to offer. As a result we recruited a far higher proportion of our team via this route. The support from the various employment agencies was second to none and our experience of recruiting in East London far exceeded our expectations. I would urge any potential employer to consider harnessing the diversity and plethora of experience and expertise which exists within these areas.” - ARAMARK (Neil Shroeder - Executive Director, Special Projects) “Working with the Host Boroughs throughout our recruitment campaign for the Olympics has been a fantastic experience. The candidates put forward to us were of a high quality and eager to work and they displayed the values we were looking for working at games time. Throughout the process the Host Borough candidates have remained engaged and enthusiastic and we are really looking forward to meeting them again at our training sessions in June and working with them and equipping them with skills for the future during games time. I would encourage employers to work with Host Borough Labour Bureaus when looking to recruit personnel as if you are clear on the jobs on offer and the skills you require there are some outstanding candidates through this route.” - SODEXO (Jo Morgan - Senior HR Manager)
