Tabitha's winning entry
Tabitha won this year’s award for her work with to find a suitable candidate for a senior role which had our client had been unable to fill for 18 months. She delivered a mix of market mapping, approach and candidate qualification to help our client identify the key challenges in filling the role with a top class candidate.
After sharing market insight, Tabitha advised the client that the role would be better suited to a more senior profile than initially thought. This gave access to a broader talent pool, overcame many of the challenges by increasing the role’s appeal to candidates and reflected the opportunity to make a difference to an organisation undertaking a global transformation.
Tabitha also widened the target list and then approached candidates to showcase the role in a different light. From six initial candidates, four were interviewed and a successful offer was made. We have since worked with our client on numerous other assignments as a direct result of the success of this key project.
A fantastic achievement
Commenting on her award, Tabitha said, “I was surprised, but delighted, to win such a prestigious award. It’s wonderful to be recognised for the work we do that makes a real difference to our clients.”
