The Bigger Picture - Recruitment Across the Organisation:
The company has been going through a period of growth. This rapid progress has led to a twofold need for adding numbers to their team including Management. First, an increase in headcount and secondly the team requires stronger skilled employees to help advance the company even further.
The Management level role – How we helped:
We recently recruited a Finance Manager into a newly created role for the company to bridge the gap between the finance team and the Director due to growth. This company always looks for candidates who have leadership qualities – whether they’re being hired for a management role or not.
The company were happy to take their time recruiting for this role since it was a new position and they were pleased that we understood this and that we will move at a pace that suits the situation. Since the role was a blank canvas we found out where the Directors wanted to pitch this role and created a profile for the perfect candidate.
The successful candidate was exactly as briefed – the right background, attitude, work ethic and technical qualification. It’s only been a few weeks, but the Finance Manager has integrated very well and is already a credible leader. She is asking great questions and showing a real desire to listen and learn. She has fitted into the team very easily, is managing relationships well and seems very comfortable. The company are feeling very positive about this hire.
