Why us

Our client needed to recruit for both current and future roles. We not only found them the right candidates but also shared insights that gave them a better understanding of the market and their competitors.

Seeking senior positions with specialist experience and skills

Our client has operations in over 40 countries. They were looking to hire a Commercial Director for its Austria business, while also proactively seeking candidates for a potential General Manager role one to two years down the line. 

Both candidates needed strong English language skills and experience of specialist oncology products.

Both roles were paying in excess of €170k plus executive package.

Solution

Successful recruitment, future talent identified and a wealth of insights to drive business decisions

Our remit was to map the Austrian market (including Austrian nationals who were working elsewhere in Europe), then speak to these individuals to find candidates for both roles. At the same time, we were also gathering real-time market insight.

Insights help guide future business and hiring decisions

We not only successfully found the right people for the roles, we also shared the information we uncovered throughout the process. Our final Search Analysis Report gave insights into:

  • competitor activity
  • role remit, responsibility and title,
  • salary and package,
  • brand perception,
  • diversity and inclusion,
  • geography and other relevant topics.

Ongoing work

Our client was very happy with the outcome and we recently worked with them on a similar exercise for a business unit based in Asia-Pacific.
