Global Strategy Consultancy, Germany

The problem

Our client could not find candidates of sufficient experience and calibre to join their high-performing team in one of their German offices.

What the client needed

Strategy Manager or Principal who speaks fluent German and English plus had a focus on a particular industry sector.

The Search - Proactive

We created a longlist of 150 names from various Germany cities targeting the top 7 strategy consultancies in Germany and Austria.  We then had video skypes with 15 candidates and submitted 8 people who were all interviewed.  This type of role is one of the most difficult in the market so we needed to speak to a lot of candidates to find people who were interested, it really was a numbers game!

Results

We hired a Manager from AT Kearney with 8 years’ consulting experience.

The future

We continue to work with this client around the world helping them find those difficult people!
