A retained search solution for an Investment Holding Company

The challenge:

Our client, an investment holding company, needed to hire a new SVP of Legal (Regulation) for their HQ, their key challenge being finding someone with the right level of seniority who would also be a strong culture fit. As a long-time, trusted recruitment partner, we were their first choice to handle the role, due to the confidential nature of the mandate.

Our solution:

Our expertise and deep penetration in the region were key when mapping the market to find and secure candidates who met the unique brief. After our first shortlist of five, one outstanding candidate went all the way through eight rounds of interviews, including a leadership psychometric test and an external party interview. Our strong relationships with the hiring manager and HR Director were critical in securing the hire and we subsequently managed the entire offer process, keeping all parties fully informed throughout.

The outcome:

  • We successfully placed the SVP Legal within a relatively short time, given the client’s thorough hiring process

  • We continue to be a trusted partner that they rely on as a great brand ambassador for them
