Chief People Officer
Identify and attract a commercial HR 'thought leader’ who could drive the performance of a leading international organisation through its people.
The Fortune Hill team spent half a day shadowing the CEO, meeting key individuals and 'star performers' within the organisation.
This exercise proved to be extremely valuable in understanding the business' culture and also the necessary experience and behaviours required for success. A list of target companies was compiled and signed-off by the client. 120 possible candidates were identified across the UK and Europe. A shortlist was presented and each candidate was considered suitable following the first and second stages of the client's interview process.
Fortune Hill enabled the client to identify and attract a person they considered to be a ‘perfect fit’.
“Fortune Hill conducted a global search and provided us with a diverse range of well qualiﬁed and culturally suitable candidates. They then ensured we secured our ﬁrst choice. We have worked with FH for more than 6 years and they have made a signiﬁcant contribution to Shop Direct’s transformation towards becoming a world-class digital retailer. The team has invested considerable time and energy to develop a deep understanding of our business and culture. Their expertise and approach have consistently delivered excellent results for us.”
