Our Approach to Solve the Search
This was a new client for SCM Talent Group (SCM) and a new role for our Client so establishing trust at the beginning of the search was critical. The client was a dream to work with and gave SCM the autonomy to discuss the role with multiple stakeholders in order to develop the agreed upon role requirements and sourcing strategy. Because of the work put in on the front end, SCM was able to identify a slate of qualified candidates within 2 weeks of kicking off the search. The client was highly engaged throughout the process and was quick with feedback and next steps while providing an outstanding candidate experience to all candidates that interviewed.
The Hire & Results
32 days after kicking off the search we had a signed offer letter from a highly qualified candidate. Ultimately, SCM lived up to our promise of having a qualified slate of candidates within 2-3 weeks. What set this search apart from some others was the client’s engagement, ability to make quick decisions and willingness to approach this search as “One Team.” While this was our first interaction with this client, we suspect that this will be a long-term partnership, which is what we strive for with all of our clients.
