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.

Leading Chilled Foods Business

We worked exclusively with a leading frozen foods business on the search for a Senior Buyer. We had previously placed the current Senior Buyer, who was promoted to Head of Category, and we’re able to successfully identify and source a replacement. The candidate impressed throughout the process and this was a key hire in building out the new team.

The candidate has been responsible for creating procurement policies and procedures which has increased accountability and compliance.

Multi-Service Event Partners

We were retained by our client on a large number of roles across Finance, Procurement, Marketing, & Sales as they expanded their teams, and grew their revenue streams.

At the beginning of our partnership, we met with the client onsite, discussing their immediate transformation structure and long term goals. With such a large and cross-departmental undertaking, and with roles ranging from Director level to ‘Head of’, we initially spent time understanding the business and its culture. A crucial element in the recruitment process that enables us to identify and attract the right talent, as well as effectively sell both the company and the role to the candidate.

As a result, we have successfully placed 11 candidates with the client, in just the last 6 months.

Case Study

Leading Contract Production & Packaging Company

We were trialled by a new client after previous search agencies had struggled to fill a key role for them. Despite being briefed last and so starting ‘behind the curve’, as industry experts we conducted a comprehensive search, constructively challenging and advising on select requirements of the role such as search location and candidate criteria, which other agencies lacked the specialist knowledge to do. After presenting a shortlist of eight CV’s to the client, six were taken forward, compared to two in total from the other agencies, with three of those progressing through to final interview, and one candidate being offered the role.

Following the successful placement of the role, we quickly became the client’s preferred Operations recruiter as their team grew, with a further fifteen roles following to date.
