Estimated reading time: 2 minutes Attracting and retaining Interim talent on Transformation Programmes: Why expert recruiters work best!

As a director specialising in placing Transformation leaders, I know that in a highly competitive marketplace, there is nothing that damages programmes more than bad hiring. On talking with my network it’s apparent there’s an increasing groundswell of frustration with recruitment supply chains, especially in larger organisations.

Successful, experienced recruiters are successful because we leverage close, long term relationships with specialist candidate networks and senior and executive managers, doing everything necessary to keep those relationships focused on what each individual company needs. The personal relationships with individuals ensures the right team is placed for a transformation project, before, during and after launch.

Quality over quantity

RPO’s have grown over the last 5 to 10 years with a focus on allowing the client to effectively put all their recruitment eggs in one basket which can of course work for certain projects and teams. However, sometimes the direct personal relationship is needed to tell you what isn’t on the CV.

The decision to change your Business Systems or Enterprise Applications is not taken lightly and begins with a lot of research and background work, so shouldn’t the same be applied to the team who will implement it?

That’s why expert, knowledgeable recruiters who are embedded in the niche sectors within the IT and finance industries will provide quality over quantity.

Business change & transformation requirements are typically different and unique compared to the majority of other BAU business functions and in our 19 years’ experience we know that this requires a different, more agile and unique resource buying solution.

Quality recruitment offers a personal, bespoke and advisory service, gaining detailed knowledge of companies needs and offering the right advice and solution. Differentiating by finding quality, trusted and proven resource and providing appropriate solutions not solely bodies, read our case studies here to see how we do this best.
