DXC Technology was created by the merger of CSC and HPE in early 2017 and has 130,000 employees across more than 70 countries. Chandler Macleod has been engaged with DXC since its formation to deliver each annual graduate intake in Australia and New Zealand. Our multiple end to end graduate recruitment processes included discovery and analysis via hiring manager surveys to pinpoint unique graduate requirements and skillsets. From this data, a comprehensive advertising strategy across all locations was employed, targeting over 150 unique roles for each intake.
Chandler Macleod Consultant Psychologists designed a suitable assessment process to encompass all Graduate role types, ranging from Corporate roles to Software Engineering. Online psychometric assessments, including game-based assessments in recent years, and video interviews were utilised to reduce a large candidate pool to a shortlist matched to role requirements.
Assessor training was provided so that DXC could develop and utilise their own staff in the assessment process due to the widespread facilitation of assessment centres, each with a new DXC assessor team due to individual managers interviewing candidates shortlisted for their specific roles. Chandler Macleod facilitators enhanced the outcomes of assessment centre by maintaining consistent presences across each location and bringing knowledge of specific candidate requirements sought at various locations for distinct DXC teams.
For each graduate intake, Chandler Macleod have partnered with DXC to deliver between 28 to 36 assessment centres across Australia and New Zealand. Collectively, we have administered over 5,000 online assessments, 2,200 video interviews and invited over 1,500 candidates to assessment centres.
The outcome of these processes has been a talent boost of high calibre graduates to complete the Graduate Program and help address the responsibilities of DXC whilst building organisational capabilities in preparation for future challenges.
With 60 years of experience in Human Resources services, Chandler Macleod’s specialist Graduate and Volume recruitment team relies on efficient processes and well-established systems to ensure a consistent application, screening, interview, assessment, and selection experience.
