"The client was not receiving the right calibre and type of candidates from direct applications and other agencies"

CASE STUDY

Global Strategy And Analytics Consultancy – London Team

SECTORS: Cross Sector

FUNCTIONS: Data Analytics,Strategy

The Problem

The client is a growing global strategy consultancy looking for an experienced associate consultant to help grow their analytics practice. They needed to have strong technical expertise and coding skills as well as strategy consulting experience.

This was an urgent need with two vacancies and projects to work on straight away. The client was not receiving the right calibre and type of candidates from direct applications and other agencies.


What The Client Needed

Excellent academics, experience in strategy consulting from a reputed consultancy and analytics experience with proficiency in R or Python, as well as a commercial mindset and ability to work in a client facing role. The culture is sociable and a fast paced and challenging environment so the right culture fit was as important as the skill set.


The Search – Proactive

We mapped the market based upon the briefing with the head of analytics and partner. We presented 7 qualified candidates, 5 were invited to interview, 3 reached final round and 1 was hired.


Results

We have successfully filled the two vacancies at this grade, the second through repeating the process. As well as this we introduced a candidate who was outside of their typical brief but through fully understanding the client’s needs and by meeting both the client and the candidate, it was found that this candidate was a strong fit and they were hired after impressing through the process. 


The Future

We have built trust and credibility with the client and have placed a further two people in the team. The relationship continues and we are now engaged in another search for their next two hires.
