The challenge

A newly engaged client had been to market for a newly qualified accountant to join their Fund Control team. The CFO and Head of Talent had initially struggled to attract the right calibre of candidate through a combination of LinkedIn adverts alongside an exclusive arrangement with another agency.

The solution

JSS Financial Services provided a market overview highlighting the conditions impacting the search so the client understood the challenges in the market at this level. We changed the interview process to reflect the dynamic nature of the market and, fortunately, found the right candidate within three weeks of being briefed on the vacancy.c

The impact

“Marianne explained the market very clearly; we found this approach useful as previously we had engaged an agency who was supplying low-quality CV’s in low volume. Once we understood how to position ourselves alongside the factors that were important to candidates at this level, we found the search much easier to navigate” – Head of Finance, PE Fund.
