RPO, Recruitment Process Outsourcing

Profile Group supports us by providing a team of 4 senior recruiters who are on-site at John Cockerill. These recruiters are highly skilled in the area of candidate sourcing and able to deal with the very specialised profiles we need. They are here to attract new talents but also to constantly manage our own candidate database. They are in charge of improving our recruitment process and advising us specially during the delicate selection process. 

In this role, they are true ‘sparring partners’ for our managers as they help in the definition of the roles, bring their knowledge of the candidate market and support at each step including the negociation for the final offer that they create in collaboration with our HR team.


  • A team of 4 active recruiters who are fully integrated in the 5 business units within our group (Industry, Defense, Energy, Environment, Services) and who manage all the national and international recruitments. Whatever the market (Belgium, France or the US), they fully manage all the recruitment missions for the group. In 2021, 27% of the recruitments managed by Profile Group were for the talent sourcing for our entities in France and the US.
  • The qualitative recruitment of no less than 380 talents since the beginning of our collaboration70% of these recruitments were due to the development of projects related to the energy and environmental transitionWe have been able to attract talent coming from large international groups which enabled us to position outside our traditional markets.
