SAP themselves, Boehringer Ingelheim the global pharmaceutical giant, ES2P the award winning Ariba SAP Partner and Deloitte all come to us to fill their SAP Ariba vacancies, here is a snapshot of their bluewaveSELECT customer journeys:  

SAP set the bar very high for their SAP Ariba Consultants and were struggling to find the volume of suitable Ariba Guided Buying professionals through their existing recruitment channels. This had a direct impact on their ability to support customers. bluewaveSELECT were engaged with a brief to source the ‘best’ Guided Buying professionals in the region. After going to our network, we introduced our first candidate within 3 days of the assignment, this candidate was successfully hired 2 weeks later. bluewaveSELECT is now an approved supplier to SAP Benelux and SAP UK, continuing to support their SAP Ariba requirements

Boehringer Ingelheim, an €18bn global pharmaceutical organisation, required a global team of highly experienced SAP Ariba professionals to design and implement a full S2P solution across all geographies as part of a worldwide business transformation programme.

bluewaveSELECT worked in partnership with Boehringer Ingelheim’s PMO partner and sourced a full team of SAP Ariba professionals throughout EMEA, APAC and North and South America to enable the on-time delivery of programme.

ES2P, a niche SAP procurement consultancy and the 2018 SAP Ariba EMEA North Partner of the Year, specifically sought to partner with a SAP Ariba focused recruitment business to help fuel its growth ambitions in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. bluewaveSELECT became that partner. To date we have placed multiple permanent and contract SAP Ariba professionals into ExceleratedS2P throughout the UK, and have provided resources to drive expansion in to the Czech Republic and Dubai.

Deloitte have an SAP Pinnacle Award winning Ariba team and began working with bluewaveSELECT in 2017 due to our growing reputation for recruiting great SAP Ariba consultants where other recruitment businesses failed.

Working with Deloitte’s US-based global MD for Ariba, our first challenge was to recruit a senior German-speaking SAP Ariba Consultant for the German practice on a permanent basis.

A challenge for some, we immediately went to our closed network of SAP Ariba professionals and introduced the successful candidate within two days; someone who we had met at an AribaLIVE conference earlier that year who was not on any agency databases, LinkedIn or responding to job adverts. 

Deloitte were impressed with our ability to go beyond the usual agency reach and introduce a truly high-performing ‘passive’ candidate. 

This success has led to us partnering with Deloitte’s SAP Ariba practice to supply consultants across the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Czech Republic, USA and APAC.
