This Financial Services provider approached us as they were looking for External Audit Managers. They were also looking for a recruitment partner to support them in working multiple roles within Finance & IT. They had used other agencies before, but had found that their point of contacts were constantly changing and this affected the level of service they received.
We had a series of meetings to gain understanding of their needs and employer brand, to agree the process and to put into place a Service Level Agreement. This helped to set the expectation for both parties. Our strategy was an executive search campaign, focused on networking and referrals.
They were very specific about their requirements from the individual they needed. They wanted Chinese speaking professionals and purely people with experience within the Big 4. However they were unable to pay as much as the Big 5 firms. This presented difficulties in persuading candidates to consider the roles on offer.
We therefore extended our search to wider areas of the APAC region. By sourcing key candidates from Malaysia we were in a better position to fit in with the budget limitations.
We shortlisted around 9 candidates and had 3 interviews and 2 offers
We placed 2 candidates out of the 3 interviews we scheduled on the first role we were given. The role had been open for more than 3 months.
