Allison Homes: Case Study

Allison Homes

Company Background

Allison Homes builds homes to create great communities and form great relationships. Their focus is always on the customer, teamwork, pride, trust, sustainability, and biodiversity as well as creating great places to live.

The Brief

Through changes in the business, they found a need to hire a Head of HR. They met us through a networking event and were keen to utilise us for our expertise in the senior HR candidate market.

Allison Homes met with the key consultants who were managing the recruitment process, to understand who they were, how they operated, and what their experience was for recruiting for this role. We listened to them in terms of what they believed was required in terms of sector experience and culture. 

The Process

We provided Allion Homes with a shortlist of five candidates, three of which were interviewed thoroughly and taken through to a second interview stage. Throughout the process, two more exceptional candidates were added to the recruitment activity.

The Result

The process ran smoothly and communication was clear and concise. The selection of pre-interviewed candidates presented to Allison Homes fully met the agreed brief. This allowed them to select two high quality candidates for final selection, either one of which they would have been happy to appoint.
