Division: Human Resources

The client brief

A Group Head of Compensation was required for an international brand based in Poole. The current employee had been promoted so the new post needed to take on a team of three who worked on rewards and benefits.

The successful candidate needed a proven track-record of dealing with compensation and share plans. Ideally, knowledge of general HR practices and procedures was desirable as well as knowledge of legislative requirements in respect to compensation and share plans in multiple countries.

The Bond Williams Approach

We used traditional recruitment roots such as job boards, but knew there would be a limited talent pool within this sector who had specific experience, so widened the net. As well as searching LinkedIn, we created a headhunting project. However, it became clear that the candidates we approached had much higher salary expectations that the client was willing to pay. We fed back to the client and had an honest conversation while continuing the search.

The Result

A very suitable candidate was found via LinkedIn and approached. After a few conversations and a lot of perseverance with both the candidate and client, we were able to facilitate an interview and subsequent job offer at a higher salary than the original brief.

Division: Engineering, Science & Space
Location: Oxford
Recruitment Consultant: Peter Knibbs

The client brief

A specialist manufacturing business going through a period of significant expansion and change needed to find a production manager to start ASAP to replace a retiring employee, who also needed to manage the handover. They were conscious that putting their own advert out could take too much time and that they wouldn’t yield the right result. Time and industry expertise was very much of the essence.

The Bond Williams Approach

Our engineering recruitment division quickly got to work to gain a detailed understanding of the business, deliverables of the role, experience required and company culture. They then performed a robust search and selection exercise focusing on local candidates with the right background who could start quickly to alleviate the pressure on the client. Within 24 hours we had produced four quality CVs.

The Result

Two of these candidates were invited for an interview that took place the following day, and one was selected for a follow up interview two days later which resulted in a job offer. Within a week of initial instruction, we’d found the client the perfect candidate for this business-critical role. They started shortly after we successfully negotiated the job offer and acceptance.
