5 New Heads into a Financial Services Company
Posted on 16th July 2018 at 14:04
Emerald Starfish was asked to run a short term recruitment project to design and deliver a recruitment strategy to include the recruitment of 2 administrators, 2 paraplanners and a Talent Acquisition Manager.
The company has high growth plans and needed a recruitment piece to help meet these plans. In the past they had engaged with traditional recruitment agencies which had incurred high costs with little understanding in terms of the culture of the company. The client wanted to use this recruitment piece to ensure that their recruitment plans weren't limited by when the new Talent Aquisition Manager could start.
Emerald Starfish was referred into the company and we worked with the client to design and then implement the recruitment strategy to ensure successful recruitment of personnel in line with role profiles, job specification and cultural values of the company. We identified that each of the three different types of roles would require a slightly different approach.
We came up with a fixed price for the whole project. This work included advertising, CV sifting, telephone interviewing as well as some headhunting work for the more technical positions as well as the design and delivery of bespoke assessment centres to ensure that we could assess multiple candidates at any one time ensuring that we would assessing skills specific for each role. For example historically some of the administrators had demonstrated a poor attention to detail once in the role so we assessed this as part of the recruitment process.
The client appointed 2 administrators, 1 trainee paraplanner and 1 fully qualified paraplanner as well as a Talent Acquisition Manager. The costs equated to an equivalent 8.9% placement fee and saved a total of around £18,450.
For a fixed price, Emerald Starfish undertook:
Design of the Recruitment Strategy
Advertising of roles
Screening of all applicants against each job profile
Headhunting for the paraplanner positions
Telephone interviewing of relevant candidates
Design and delivery of assessment centres for each role
Running of the assessment centres
Managing all the candidates throughout the process to ensure an exceptional level of service.
What the Client said
“All of the hard work has paid off!"
