Following a lengthy, unsuccessful and expensive advertising campaign this leading European Payment Solutions company contacted MSC with an urgent problem. They had wasted over 4 months sifting through candidate applications for a senior management post and none of the individuals matched their profile as the skills they needed were so specific. The company was planning to launch a brand new service in Germany and urgently needed a new Managing Director (Geschäftsführer) to start up operations in Central Europe and hire a team.
MSC were quickly retained and worked with the client to understand exactly what they needed and wanted as a business. Detailed understanding of the unique technology was required as well as the commercial objectives of the company and personalities of the key management team. We needed to understand how this person should add value and what skills they needed to bring to the clients organisation in order to be successful in the new role.
Our client required a fast solution balanced with top quality results, and so the MSC team responsible for the project worked 7 days a week for the first few months to ensure we sourced the best people for the role. The candidates we approached were working across Europe for other Payment Service Providers, Finance and e-commerce companies. They were attracted to the new role because it provided fantastic career development opportunities in a growing company, and the chance to work with cutting edge technologies and solutions that enabled this brand new service to attract substantial market attention and quick sales success.
In less than 4 weeks MSC provided the client with a varied shortlist of candidates from some of the region’s leading competitors. All the candidates had been interviewed face to face in their respective countries and had undergone a rigorous screening process. Within days of the client interviews an offer was made and the successful candidate secured. This critical hire has enabled our client to further its expansion plan, enter a brand new market and increase revenue through huge growth and prestigious client acquisitions.
“After wasting time on numerous other recruitment methods we realised that headhunting was the only option for us to find the very specific person we needed. MSC found us a perfect match very quickly and they have added a huge amount of value to our business through their headhunting service. Naturally we are using MSC to help us with more of our challenging hires because they understand us, our business and the market.”
