Why Strive? Having exhausted normal internal recruitment processes, a market specialist was clearly required for such a pivotal new role within the business unit. Several consultancies competed for the assignment, providing mixed results. The feeling coming back was whilst quantity of applications very high, all lacking in either relevant experience, cultural fit, or with poorly aligned expectations from the role.
Result? Providing a technical match came naturally, the challenge remained identifying a candidate who shared the companies passion, understood the vision of their future and would relish to the opportunity to grow and develop the department in line with their expansion plans.
