The Brief

Our brief was to identify and attract an exceptionally talented Chief People Officer.

Reporting directly to the CEO, this new role would be responsible for professionalising existing systems and implementing a transformational HR structure into an established global digital business going through periods of exponential growth.

The Process

Our team met with several key stakeholders within the organisation to ensure we had a comprehensive understanding of our client’s requirements. We then conducted an extensive search to fully map the candidate landscape and provide our client with sufficient insight to make an informed decision.

Our research team extensively mapped the market, gaining insight into over 120 organisations to build a candidate list of appropriately skilled professionals. Cultural fit was a key aspect of this assignment as the individual would join an established board. Fortune Hill invested significant time to ensure that upon submission of a shortlist, all of the candidates were both professionally and culturally appropriate.

The Result

Fortune Hill enabled the client to appoint a highly impressive Chief People Officer, who demonstrates an impressive track record of HR management at an executive level.

Fortune Hill appointed a seasoned HR executive with extensive experience in managing businesses going through both periods of growth and transformation. The client was, and remains, delighted with the result following a carefully managed search process. The successful candidate is making a significant positive impact on the organisation.

"We were very impressed with Fortune Hill throughout the search, from the initial phone call to the briefing meeting, the management of the process and of course the outcome. Their understanding of our business was excellent, meaning they presented us with a shortlist of truly first class candidates, leading to the exciting appointment of our first Chief People Officer. The search process was hassle-free, Joel and Ben were always clear and professional and they stuck to our ambitious timescales. We are delighted with both the experience and the result and would not hesitate to work with Fortune Hill again." Head of HR
