A high net worth individual presented an urgent requirement which involved quick turnaround of a General Manager role following a hotel acquisition. The location was attractive, but unusual, and not perceived 'ideal' by every candidate. There being no local market to search into for this role it was evident it would be 'industry knowledge' that would secure the ideal candidate.
A retained solution was agreed. The PSD
Hospitality and Leisure team brainstormed using their many years'
recruitment and industry knowledge and a target list of 25 individuals
located throughout the UK were identified.
Within five days of
instruction the team were able to feedback that five prime targets were
identified. The client agreed and requested the shortlist, screened and
interviewed within one week. Two candidates were selected and were required
to undertake international travel for interview within seven days.
One of the two candidates who flew to the
interview returned with the contract in their pocket. The client was equally
pleased with the backup candidate.
The client told us this was one of
the best pieces of recruitment they had encountered from their experience
across the wide variety of business sectors they are involved with.
