A well-known kids holiday, adventure and activities company were looking to grow their head office change team by 3 to help capitalise on continued success and improve internal processes and systems.
The hiring manager wanted to see experienced Business Analysts and Project Managers with great attention to detail, experience working on specific IT systems and a proactive attitude to solving problems through technology.
The company location provided the biggest challenge, along with finding candidates who had specific industry experience.
Our Approach & Solutions
Visited the offices and met with multiple managers across the business to not only see the culture and working environment first hand but get a much better understanding of the opportunity on offer, the business as a whole, the commute, the office environment and the type of person that would fit in
Due to the location and requirements of the search, an extensive search of both passive and active candidates within the local area was needed - utilising our networks, our database, job advertising and marketing campaigns, recommendations, LinkedIn and specific job boards
Due to the lack of active candidates within the area - Targeted headhunting was essential, where we reached out to people working at specific companies within the same industry within commuting distance
Compiled a longlist of suitable candidates, met and interviewed everyone interested in proceeding and produced a shortlist of the best candidates in the market.
Provided feedback and market updates throughout the process to the hiring manager, working closely with her to make interviews, offers and salary negotiations all went seamlessly
We were able to find 3 experienced, local candidates, who really bought into the company ethos within 4 weeks of our initial meeting.
