A retained search project for a Global Technology Company

The challenge:

A global technology company was looking for an experienced Head of HR to drive HR change management and expansion. They had engaged an agency for this mandate already, but the original hire had not proven to be a good cultural fit, so they retained Argyll Scott confidentially to map the market for available talent and find a replacement.

Our solution:

We fully mapped the market to uncover candidates that met the specific criteria, using all the tools at our disposal including our internal integrated global database, LinkedIn Recruiter, candidate referrals, and digital advertising platforms.

The outcome:

  • We screened 36 candidates, shortlisted 10 CVs, received 7 interviews and 1 offer

  • We recruited the Head of HR role within the required timeline, while maintaining full confidentiality

  • We consulted the client on their employer branding to attract top talent, despite the confidential nature of the mandate

  • The client was so happy with the outcome that they engaged us for a newly created role on a retained search
