Case Study – Recruitment

The client

Fast-growing technology business with £5m turnover and 100 staff.

The brief

Our client wanted an amazing HR Director with Fintech experience. They’d been looking for a long time, but hadn’t identified a suitable candidate.

What we did

We discovered that they’d previously engaged a recruiter who didn’t understand the UK recruitment market, the business or the requirements of the role. The CEO needed expert advice and after analysing the business needs, we suggested hiring a heavy- hitting experienced Chief People Officer reporting directly to him. 

The outcome

We quickly found them an experienced CPO who had worked for an online retail and property business. Ironically, they’d applied directly to the company only to be rejected without interview because they didn’t have Fintech experience. We convinced our client that Fintech experience wasn’t a deal breaker – fantastic HR experience was far more important.

The cost

5% of salary – this candidate was identified and brokered via our HR network within a couple of weeks.
