Nokia Case Study


ALLEN & YORK successfully recruit Health & Safety Manager for Nokia

Nokia Networks is a world leader in specialist mobile broadband, large-scale telecommunications infrastructures, technology development and licensing.  Headquartered in Finland, Nokia employ over 60,000 people across 120 countries, and conduct sales in more than 150 countries.

Nokia is a global brand and as such has exacting standards for Health, Safety and Sustainability across their business.

ALLEN & YORK are leading international Health, Safety & Sustainability recruitment consultants, headquartered in the UK.  With operations in the UK and UAE, we have strong international networks and partner leading consultancies and corporate companies to grow their business sustainably and safely.

Having worked with Nokia in the past ALLEN & YORK’s Health & Safety team were delighted to be invited to recruit a Health & Safety Manager, to work closely with their Global Head of Health and Safety.

An urgent requirement based in Egypt, the Nokia team were keen to fill the position as soon as possible.

After taking a detailed brief our H&S Team were able to search across their considerable networks within the MENA region.  Our Lead Consultant, Dana Atalla, having been based in the Middle East for some years, has a great network of active candidates and in conjunction with the popularity of the Nokia brand was able to source an impressive shortlist of great talent for the role.

ALLEN & YORK excel in partnering companies to support their long term recruitment strategies and Dana worked closely with Nokia’s Global Head of Health and Safety to ensure we found candidates with a perfect technical as well as cultural fit for the business.  

Interviews were quickly arranged and subsequent negotiations were all handled by our recruitment team as standard, leaving Nokia to make clear decisions on the suitability of each candidate.

A stand out candidate was identified and both ALLEN & YORK and Nokia were delighted with the results and the fast turnaround.

From the minute that I spoke to Dana Atalla I was immediately reassured that I was in capable hands.  Dana expertly scoped Nokia’s requirement to identify a candidate for a demanding position within our Middle East and Africa operation and set about quickly to identify suitable individuals for the role.

Within a pleasingly short space of time she had identified a number of strong candidates and had provided me with detailed and comprehensive supporting documentation which made the whole process of interviewing the candidates not only very easy, but also a real pleasure.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in going back to ALLEN & YORK and Dana Atalla for future recruitment requirements and I would rate the service that Dana provided at the upper end of Outstanding.”
