The business needed to appoint a new Financial Controller, an important strategic position for them, but were struggling to find and attract the right calibre of candidate with their standard finance recruitment partner. Following on from the successful delivery of several senior leadership placements during a significant growth period for group subsidiary LPA Connection Systems, Allan Binstead, Managing Director of LPACS approached Jonathan Lee Search & Selection to see if we could help with this critical appointment..
The role itself required a real leader for their finance team that could also contribute to the wider leadership team and who had a combined skillset encompassing both management accounting and delivering improvements to process controls and systems, equally strong in BAU finance as in finance change management. After a detailed briefing, we decided on a market strategy to deliver the right candidates for the role.
- Embarked on a salary benchmarking exercise of local talent that matched the brief, which enabled us to quickly establish the correct salary and benefits package for the skills required and provided evidence of this to LPACS.
- An extensive campaign of targeted, anonymised advertising and search, presentation of shortlist including detailed candidate reports and reasons for suitability of each candidate from our screening process.
- Support of video and face-to-face interviews, working with internal hiring stakeholders as a neutral party to assess candidates against requirements.
- Support of offer management process and negotiation
