We assigned a team to work on the roles, feeding everything back through a single point so that the client didn't need to worry about who was handling each role. We met the client at their ofices and got under the skin of their briefs, their location and their culture, and subsequently and quickly embarked upon a marketing campaign:
We searched our extensive database across all relevant sectors, on both Agency and Clientside, as well as looking externally at passive candidates via LinkedIn
Based in Woolwich, the location of the roles wasn't the most appealing nor accessible. In addition whilst the opportunity to join a growing team was a great one, this wasn't a 'destination' brand, nor was it instantly recognisable. Given the recruitment need was urgent this wasn't our easiest assignment.
We managed to quickly fill 5 of the 7 roles, using our extensive database and rapid search facility to identify a number of candidates for the roles. We quickly re-established contact with the candidates and ensured their interest, before presenting to the client. (The other 2 roles were filled by the client themselves directly.)
Our relationship with the client was enhanced, and we have subsequently become a trusted partner for their Marketing recruitment needs.
We were able to provide candidates with a complete view of the company, from role spec to the culture of their business, which made for a much more efficient client process.
