Our brief was to identify and attract an exceptionally talented high-flyer with the potential to play an integral part in supporting our client with rapid growth in the UK market.
Our client was ideally looking for world-class talent from within grocery retail or FMCG. Candidates needed to be of the highest academic pedigree with naturally high levels of gravitas and the ability to communicate effectively at every level.
The Fortune Hill project team dedicated a significant amount of time to understanding the business, its key stakeholders and the client's unique culture.
The team built an extensive target list consisting of over 100 companies and 300 candidates, including searching in less obvious places for talent. We also utilised our extensive network of senior contacts to identify the best up and coming talent. All candidates went through a process which balanced dynamic attraction and rigorous assessment, ensuring our client was able to select and hire the very best individual for their requirements.
Fortune Hill enabled our client to appoint an outstanding individual, and based on this result, we were retained to work on an ongoing basis to bring additional talent to their business.
We were able to secure an exceptionally talented individual with the requisiteacademic background, all of the relevant skills and experience for the role and outstanding references. More importantly, they were a perfect cultural fit for our client's business, and equally, our client's business was a perfect match for them.
"I have worked with a large number of Executive Search firms in my career and Fortune Hill's work is of the very highest standard. From my perspective the whole experience was very impressive". HR Director
