In competition with a long standing retained Search Agency we were given a demanding brief to source a candidate who had experience developing new business / growing membership, and lobbying relevant public sector bodies and government, as well as raising the profile of the Trade Association in challenging times with the key issues of recession and perceived detrimental technical issues to deal with.
Additionally we ideally needed to source from a closely related sector with a good understanding of our clients market, but specifically NOT from the within it to ensure no bias or issues within the membership. There was a further preference not to engage a traditional Trade Association figure.
”Graham was professional and informative throughout the whole process. I never felt that I was not fully informed of the situation throughout. Clearly it is important to Graham that he places candidates in the right roles and takes the time to get to know them and it never feels like you are just the next placement.”Lee
