The Client

ITG is a Birmingham based specialist marketing services and technology business.

They help major brands and retailers improve the efficiency, speed, cost and control of their marketing operations.

The Problem

ITG were looking to discreetly recruit a new position into the business following an acquisition.

The business that ITG acquired operated in a completely different way so they needed to bring in someone new that could help facilitate change, restructure and harmonise the 2 businesses.

Due to the sensitivity of the role the search needed to be discrete.

The Solution

Before going to market and approaching candidates we visited their head office and determined exactly what the brief was. We ensured that we fully understood the story of ITG and where they were heading and what was so great about their business.

With this information, we were able to advise ITG on the scope and level of the new position. We then mapped out top talent in the market and approached them directly. Having the roadmap of where ITG were heading, really helped with getting people interested and got them emotionally involved from the get go.

We were able to find a number of great candidates to shortlist and kept ITG updated through every stage of the process.

 

What They Said

“Finding that perfect recruitment partner is tough; recruiters are all the same, even though they try to tell you they’re different.  Except re:find.  They are different.

I was provided Carl’s details by a mutual friend, I contacted him and instantly liked him.  No bull, no hard sell and he actually listened and helped me scope and refine my requirements. I needed the search to be discrete.  No adverts, no blanket CV’s, just good quality applicants.

I had plenty of great CVs to shortlist and part-way through the recruitment process Carl threw me a complete curve ball, he found me a candidate that didn’t fit my original brief but told me to trust him.  Said they’d be a great fit for my organisation. I did, and it’s really paid off.  My team member also speaks highly of re:find, Carl in particular, and the support he gave him during the recruitment process.

I highly recommend re:find and look forward to working with them in the future.”
