A multi-million turnover and global professional services provider were in search of a skilled sales person. The business has over 25,000 employees alongside a large internal recruitment division but the role had been vacant for over 4 months. The hiring manager was feeling frustrated as well as the internal recruitment team, both feeling like they had exhausted all avenues.
As the open headcount was becoming costly and affecting business YTD targets, Logical were referred to the business on the back of success previously in niche skilled hires. Within 5 days a shortlist of 2 professionals was submitted of which one was successfully placed into the business within 4 weeks.
The value that Logical added was from understanding the business, it’s culture and it’s vision for the future. Using this detail we were able to identify from our network who was best suited and helped the organisation successfully on-board into the business promptly.
Our candidate talks openly on his experience… ‘’When I was first approached by Logical, it felt as if we were friends that hadn’t talked in a number of years. They took the time to understand where I was in my career, who I was as a person and more importantly what I wanted. I hadn’t considered a move previously as I was content in my role but a few short weeks after, I was presented with a number of options that could get me where I wanted to be sooner. I couldn’t have asked for a more detailed overview of a business, it’s culture or it’s people and I was genuinely excited about the prospect of this new venture. The service Logical offered wasn’t your typical email conversation and they worked around me and my diary. There was detailed conversations about management styles, operations and how I would fit in and add value with me receiving regular updates and honest feedback. Logical gave me multiple tools and were detrimental in helping me secure the role. They helped me to negotiate a suitable package, appropriately submit my notice and have since then checked in regularly to ensure it’s everything I wanted it to be!”
