As a founding client Hunter Campbell has supported this business and their people capability through huge periods of change. Every six to twelve months the business goes through a revolution, IPOs, de listings and takeovers, all while sustaining huge growth.
The commercial reality of this is that the environment is very pressured, understanding this and the complexity of the business has been crucial to the success of Hunter Campbell and its recruitment processes. Candidates were selected for their ability to fill a need during a phase in time, not necessarily the long term. In order to succeed within the organisation candidates need an incredibly high IQ to succeed alongside the senior leadership team, and to be very resilient alongside the necessary skills to do the job.
This level of knowledge of both the organisation and the sector is of huge benefit to the client as it enables them to trust Hunter Campbell to fill in the gaps. In isolation they don’t have to come up with all the answers and regularly approach Hunter Campbell as a sector expert to go through a consultative process to work through the best solution for team structures and role definitions.
An example of Hunter Campbells ability to deliver to this client is on receiving an email stating only ‘we need a Spanish speaking financial professional’ having such a good understanding of the business Hunter Campbell, without any further information, was able to shortlist that day and have a candidate hired into the role within 24 hours.
