Adopting a Recruitment Business Partner Approach gets Results

Benjamin Edwards were engaged as a recruitment business partner to fill marketing, IT and logistics staff with a well-known and reputable business in Lincoln. We often work in harmony with businesses that need and want to raise their profile locally to attract the best talent.

The problem

Our client is a well-known and reputable business in Lincoln. It was going through an extensive transformation. The company was rebranding, reorganising systems and teams and need several senior people within their management team to realise their ambitions.

The solution

Cultural fit was tantamount to getting the right people for this organisation, so a detailed vetting and interview process needed to be drawn up and agreed.

We spent a day on-site with the incumbent management team to get a real insight into how that culture was manifest. and spending time with the company’s management team allowed us to match successfully.

Our client needed a senior marketing manager, an IT lead, a logistics manager, and several key people in the marketing department.

Acting as a recruitment business partner we drafted job descriptions, agreeing what key skills would be required. Because we had spent time on site, we had a good understanding of the atmosphere and environment which would enable a good match for both the candidates we put forward and the existing team.

We handled all five stages on behalf of our client to build a pool of qualified job applicants:

  1. Planning
  2. Strategy development
  3. Searching
  4. Screening
  5. Evaluation

We provided the hiring team with regular reports, so they were involved in all the stages. By working as a recruitment business partner, representing our client we saved them time and made sure their budget was kept on target.

From the initial meeting through to each successful conclusion Claire has been delightful to work with. She is a great listener, goes to the crux of what is required and seems to have a magic approach to sourcing candidates, even in a really hard to fill position such as law.
