Recruiting in a competitive and changing market

The new role of Digital Logistics Operations Director needed a candidate with experience of a fast-paced, consumer sector, as well as a deep understanding of both volume distribution and e-commerce.

The role was strategically important, with a salary in the range of £130k.

In parallel, they also required a recruitment short-cut to this talent. This would save considerable time and effort in the future and the need to engage in a costly recruitment campaign.

Solution

Finding the right individuals to position our client for success

We started by mapping the market, identifying individuals who were established in the space. We identified 53 individuals who were a match for our client’s criteria, and created a report detailing this information for our client to review.

We then engaged with 44 of these individuals. Off the back of these conversations, nine close-fit CVs were generated and our client selected all nine of these candidates for a two-stage interview process. At the end of this, one candidate was offered the role and accepted.

Our approach ensured our client had access to the best talent in the market, as well as generating insights to help guide future talent decisions. All this was achieved at a significantly lower cost than a more traditional approach.
