Mallory Partners was engaged by HR Director Lorraine Nicholls to source an interim IT Director to support the business during a time of change.
The team worked to understand the challenges faced by the business and both the technical skills and adaptability required in the right candidates. They also focused on creating a compelling enough brief and package to attract premium talent from across the sector in the UK to the role, which is based in Burton on Trent. Within a matter of days they placed a candidate, who continues to flourish some nine months on.
HR Director Lorraine Nicholls added: “Sourcing talented interim leaders requires a particular ability to read the needs of and culture within a business, in a short space of time and translate that into a shortlist of candidates that are not only a technical match for the role but will also be able to step into the business, build relationships and lead from day one.
“Mallory Partners more than delivered on that challenge through their tenacity, attention to detail and pragmatic approach. They always make themselves available and are great to deal with; relaxed and friendly, but always professional.”
“Indeed such was the strength of the shortlist, secured by Mallory Partners for us, a second candidate was also taken on in another role within the business.”
Gary Long, the candidate placed as interim IT Director, added: “From first engagement to contract start date Mallory Partners showed true professionalism and an excellent balance in facilitating dialogue between myself and Healthcare at Home.
“I was always kept well briefed and whilst in role receive regular checkpoint discussions to ensure the engagement is running well for both myself and Healthcare at Home.
“At our first meeting I was given a full brief of the client’s expectations and contract duration expectation. Pre & post interview I spoke regularly to provide & receive feed-back. Mallory Partners are a no nonsense Executive Search firm who I would highly recommend.”
Mallory Partners was subsequently retained to help secure a Commercial Director for the business and Head of Procurement. The successful candidate for the role of Commercial Director said of her experience:
“Mallory Partners provided a highly responsive and professional service right from contact initiation and subsequently during my induction. The process was complex and so took longer than anticipated, but Mallory Partners demonstrated a real tenacity and communicated well throughout the journey leading to a very positive outcome.”
"On my first meeting with Mallory they took time to understand what I was looking for as well as interviewing me and afterwards gave me useful feedback. Sometime later a suitable role came up and they had understood my experience, strengths and desires well to match me with the opportunity (which I have not found common). After I started they kept in touch with me and the employer giving me useful feedback."
