The Technical Manager of Waste Management is a professional figure who is in charge of managing the entire waste chain, from the initial phase in which waste is produced to its final life cycle. The separate collection of waste is now a consolidated reality throughout the country, a careful management of this that we could define as a resource allows on the one hand to protect the environment, reducing landfill disposal, and on the other hand to have an economic return with their reuse and conversion of the waste itself. This strategy of reusing sorted waste is also defined as the circular economy of waste in which the production-consumption-disposal pathway is actually overcome. The main activities of the expert are basically two: the planning and organisational phase, where he/she tries to minimise the materials that are not sent for recovery and the second is the technological-plant part where the waste is sorted and finally stored as a second material for the industry.

Ricercamy, a revolutionary and dynamic head hunter, born in March 2012, has, since its inception, been committed to introducing innovative elements into the world of Search and Selection that would improve the redemption of Recruiting activities.

According to a study by Linkedin, 75% of talents are passive and already working, not proactively looking for new professional opportunities. Only 25% of them are more consistently interested in actively searching for new job offers. Therefore, investing the company’s budget in subscriptions and/or offers from job posting platforms cannot be the only effective solution.

It is necessary to adopt a methodology that allows you to reach the best candidates: headhunting calls! (or Head Hunting, as we call it).

This is how our specialised headhunters find qualified staff for our clients.

Our consultants’ anonymous calls are able to intercept any profile with different seniorities.

Through a very thorough pre-screening by telephone, in addition to the personal data, we collect all the specifications on the candidate’s experience necessary to assess its validity and thus allow the candidate to access the next step.

All of the above is carried out and shared in real time via a cloud file with our client company’s HR contact.

Transparency and immediate sharing is a distinctive feature of Ricercamy, which has specialised over the years in the search and selection of technical figures in the mechanical, electrical and electronic fields, thanks to the development of specific skills and knowledge of the profiles sought and the reference market.

Our headhunter’s operating method does not require the client to wait 2-3 weeks to receive the first shortlist of valid profiles. For us, headhunting means sharing in real time and working unfiltered and hand-in-hand with our HR contact.

By searching for staff on a daily basis, our headhunters have acquired know-how and specialisation in their fields, which allows us to be a leader in this market crowded with recruiters.

On the strength of our tools, since its inception, Ricercamy has helped engineering companies in the selection of qualified personnel who are difficult to find and to place. Thanks to Ricercamy’s SMART commercial offer, our clients ask us to carry out selections that they have always tended to do internally, but with certain costs and no complition fees or exclusivity, they feel free to delegate the management of their vacancies to us.
