The Brief

Our brief was to identify and attract a thought leader in the SaaS technology space with the ability to double the size of the Engineering team within 12 months and play a leading role in the development of the business' commercial strategy.

Suitable candidates needed to have a balance of technical expertise and outstanding leadership skills. Cultural fit was also a key consideration as the role reported directly to one of the company founders.

The Process

Fortune Hill invested a significant amount of time gaining valuable insight into the business.

The Fortune Hill Research Consultants comprehensively mapped all suitable high-growth technology companies. We were able to identify and engage with a wide range of prospective target candidates. After a thorough qualifying phase, we identified 7 individuals whose outstanding track records in comparable companies stood them out as suitable candidates. Following these meetings, Fortune Hill submitted a shortlist of 3 candidates who matched both the technical and cultural requirements of the brief.

The Result

Fortune Hill enabled the client to identify and attract two individuals who they considered an “exceptional fit."

After consideration the client decided to hire one of the two individuals, a senior manager from a global technology consultancy.

"Fortune Hill has been a key supplier to me for several years and have always been able to provide me with excellent candidates. I am given excellent feedback from his candidates on his approach and representation of the business." Head of Talent Acquisition
