Global Director of Shared Service IT

Case Study

Leading Consumer Business

We were contacted by a client that we had previously delivered for, on a number of successful IT recruitment campaigns. The client was in need of a Global Director of Shared Service IT to oversee and develop the business’ strategy, budget, and people across both domestic and overseas markets. After discussing the ideal candidate profile with the client, we were able to advise on an international recruitment campaign, targeting a handful of specific countries within Europe, and on the structure of an international relocation package that would be necessary to attract such talent. Once agreed, we began simultaneous marketing and headhunting activities across our network of candidates, the MacGregor Black website and LinkedIn page, as well as other key IT job boards within the pre-agreed target countries. Concluding a thorough search, we presented the shortlist to our client who quickly progressed two candidates through their interview stages, which resulted in a successful offer and acceptance.

Since acceptance, we have supported the candidates international relocation process ensuring they have settled quickly and easily. They are now planning further key hires in their international team, moving into 2023.

Leading Consumer Business

We were contacted by a leading global consumer business, to partner with them on the appointment of a Senior Integration Engineer, responsible for supporting their new global system role out. To begin, we conducted a thorough assessment of the sector, creating a candidate market map of key people within the field. Following this, we designed a robust and collaborative recruitment process, leveraging immediately available, and ‘open to work’, talent in our network, including a comprehensive headhunt within target companies, resulting in a outstanding shortlist of candidates.┬áThe client offered the position within their target timeframe and has since advised the hire has been invaluable to the project, adding the skillset and expertise they were lacking and has ultimately delivered the project within budget and timeframe, greatly exceeding their expectations. Following this project, we have since placed further roles with the client including an additional Senior Integration Engineer, a Global Director of Shared Service IT and a Software Maintenance Engineer.

Appointed to work on the role with the company’s Israeli board, to understand their plans to re-launch the brand in Europe with new key retailers, as well as being confidentially briefed on their launch into new product categories. We initially prioritised working with the client on their candidate engagement and re-positioned the employer brand in-line with their vision for the future. As a result, we were able to add significant value in establishing candidate uptake throughout the process, by developing a deeper understanding of the true employer brand and how they could be a more appealing employer for the future.
