The need arose for two positions; a permanent Head of Finance role and an interim Finance Systems Consultant. They reached out to us following their long-standing relationship with us and were keen to utilise us for our expertise in the Finance candidate market.
They met with the key consultants who were managing the recruitment process, to understand who they were, how they operated, and what our experience was in recruiting for this role. We visited their offices to get and understanding of what they were looking for in terms of sector experience and to get a feel for their working environment and culture.
After the meeting, we began to provide CPSL Mind with a shortlist of candidates. CPSL Mind then conducted interviews with the selected candidates and some of those were taken through to the next stage. CPSL Mind were happy with the quality of the candidates they received.
We ensured continuous communication throughout the whole recruitment process to make sure it ran smoothly. The candidates presented to CPSL Mind met the agreed brief. And the chosen candidate was the right cultural fit for the role and CPSL Mind.
"We worked with The One Group towards the end of 2022 to secure us a short-term Finance Consultant, alongside a permanent Head of Finance position.
The benefits to working exclusively with The ONE Group on these opportunities were massive – we were very time-pressured, and exclusivity meant I only had to deal with one agency, saving me loads of time. We felt The ONE Group were really invested in us and helping us find what we needed to move forward – the team really took the opportunity to get to know us, and we benefitted from additional marketing support in the form of a video advert filmed at our premises in a format that suited us. Additionally, exclusivity meant any potential awkwardness was removed, meaning we could have direct conversations and make decisions quickly.
All of this undoubtedly helped us to fill our positions quickly and effectively, and we were very pleased with the outcome. Many thanks to The ONE Group, we would definitely recommend them! "
