Pepsi Co International

"I have worked with Portland since the start of our European SAP Template Program and they have become a valued partner in that period. At the start of our relationship Portland took the time to understand our needs in detail, both from an experience and cultural fit perspective. Their in depth knowledge of SAP, coupled with a far reaching network of SAP Resource with Global Template experience, has led to them successfully placing numerous contract and permanent resources. To add to that Portland were always able to provide people with specific FMCG industry experience which was another important factor for us. I look forward to continuing our successful relationship for years to come."

SAP Program Director

Federal Mogul

"We engaged Portland as we moved into the Blueprint phase of our Global SAP Template Program. After successfully placing contract Functional Leads and an Integration Manager, Portland went on to become our preferred vendor for all contract SAP Resource Globally. What impressed me most was the fact that they could quickly deliver local resource in any country we needed. Portland sourced key contractors for our Chinese deployment in addition to placing local contractors across the whole of Europe. I would recommend Portland to anyone undertaking industrial scale SAP rollouts."

SAP Program Manager

Johnson & Johnson

"Having been a client of Portland Resourcing since July 2007 and recruited 35+ specialist SAP and Change Management contractors in that period I can certainly vouch for their excellence in identifying difficult-to-find candidates and following through with perfect vetting tailored per client. They are also very respectful of the client's time constraints and offer a tremendous, and ongoing, service to their contractors. In allocating a primary contact for the J&J business they provide great comfort in prioritising your business each and every time. I recommend every potential client to afford them the time to learn your business which will allow them to be proactive in building candidate benches best suited to your specialism should you require to reach out to them with a requirement."

"Portland have helped BAT finding people for SAP projects and support. What we liked in the approach in all cases was:
* quick and adequate response
* translation of our needs into the right CV's; flexible to changes in our needs
* honest to the candidate; they came in with the right expectations on type of work, salary and type of company
* NO annoying phone calls at inconvenient times to push things, which is what is NOT appreciated in other agencies."

SAP Project Manager

Tech Data

We have been working with Portland Resourcing for several years by now and are extremely happy with their support. Finding qualified SAP Consultants that are able to work in European projects and speak even other languages besides their mother tongue is not an easy task. Portland Resourcing has helped us finding the right candidates for not only SAP Consultancy or Development but also supported in getting the right candidates for Vendor Management, Product Marketing, Project Management or Finance positions. All projects were handled very quickly with good response rates and good profiles. Sometimes positions could be closed even within 3 days only! Whenever we needed a special support there was always someone helping at Portland and dedicating time to our issues. Also recruiting in different places across Europe was very easy with Portland and they have helped us fill positions in the UK, Germany and Spain. We are looking forward to the next years of partnership with Portland Resourcing!
