Function: Partnership Marketing
Level: Manager to Director
Duration of Search: 1 Month
Consultant Name: Craig Lewis
A London-based global media group had made the decision to bring their partnership marketing in house but were struggling to find the talent necessary to build this vital new team. Recommended to the media group by previous clients in the sector, we were quickly instructed to utilize our database and industry knowledge to fill these crucial roles on a tight schedule…
Craig was invited in to meet with the Media Group’s senior team and took a thorough brief, understanding the plans for the new team, the levels of candidates required and the business’s culture. Using his previous experience in the sector, Craig was quickly able to identify and approach several suitable candidates, holding meetings and initial screenings before drawing up a strong shortlist from a variety of relevant backgrounds (something that was requested by the client).
After a quick but thorough interview process (helped greatly by the flexibility and quick action of the client), Stonor were able to assist in the placement of 75% of the new team and filled 100% of the most crucial senior positions. This not only earned Stonor a place on the Media Group’s list of preferred recruiters but also helped us land some long-standing candidates their ideal role in a highly respected and impressive business.
I found Craig to be interested, professional and highly knowledgeable about the sector in which he was operating. He was always quick to respond and kept us updated at all stages of the process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Craig to other candidates or employers.”
This was a particularly exciting set of roles to work on for me and having been recommended to the client I was absolutely determined deliver the best possible results. I was careful to use my meeting with the senior team to gain the best possible outline of their requirements and fully understand where their recruitment efforts were going wrong. Using what I’d learned I was able to find some truly outstanding people and after guiding them through the interview process (something I take every seriously!) I was delighted with the results!
