Some of Vantage's recent success stories...

Top 30 UK
Architectural Practice

Sector: Architecture and Design
Market: India, Market Entry Research for Export and Expansion

Challenge: To understand how the brand should be positioned to promote a range of possible services + determine how/whether to enter the frequently challenging area of public sector developments

Results Achieved:

  • Clear data demonstrating the case for building the client’s USP around their masterplanning competencies
  • Case for pitching for both private and public sector major developments, proven
  • Best route to market entry identified: a local partner with  a complementary service offer, with proven connections, to help break into public sector contracts

Major UK Business Services Provider

Sector: Engineering Recruitment
Market: Qatar

Challenge: Market Entry Research for Export and Expansion: To test whether the client’s specialist engineering recruitment practice was commercially viable in a market where major international recruiters were already active.

Results Achieved:

  • Research showed that much engineering recruitment locally had become commoditised with, at best, middling satisfaction amongst the largest local recruiters
  • We identified two specific niches in the temp/interim space, with real demand for added value recruitment services, where the client could both launch and retain current premium fee levels
  • The project suggested innovative ways to promote the UK/European aspects of the brand and ‘get to’ major local recruiters, as well as the practical steps needed to set up local offices, cost-effectively
