How our expert market knowledge saved our client 21% of their estimated recruitment spend

Our client

Following a major competitor acquisition, we were approached by a market-leading services business to recruit six new finance staff. Due to their current team underperforming and the level of internal change, the project needed to be treated with the strictest of confidence pending a formal announcement.


Our approach

As a result of previous successes with this client and our in-depth candidate knowledge of the Sussex and Surrey area, we were instructed to manage their recruitment drive on an exclusive basis.

As a result, we rewrote their job descriptions, created an interview questioning document to ensure each manager had continuity in their interview technique and provided bespoke online testing for each candidate to test their accounting skills.  


The result

Our extensive market knowledge provided our client with the confidence to follow our suggested solutions-focused approach, rather than their initial plan. All six roles were successfully filled within two weeks with the client saving 21% of their estimated recruitment spend due to our initial recommendation to downgrade two of the roles.
