Rapid, accurate and effective recruitment

University of Cambridge required a contract solution to a Business Analyst vacancy within their busy Change Management Office. The urgent nature of this role necessitated a recruitment response that was rapid, accurate and effective.

Priorities supported:

  • Secure a strong, technical Business Analyst who was a match in skills and team fit

  • Expedite the recruitment process of this urgent requirement

  • Partner with a consultancy who could work rapidly and deliver a solution on budget whilst maintaining the reputation of the organisation

Experience applied:

  • Capitalising on our longstanding partnership with the University, we were able to rapidly understand and build a campaign for this position

  • Utilising our team structure, we conducted a full market appraisal through job boards, various online advertising platforms including our own website, and a LinkedIn recruiter search

  • Delivered a shortlist of three candidates within 24 hours of receiving the requisition

Outcomes delivered:

  • Exceeded all the other agencies in the quality of our candidates; the client opted to solely interview two of our shortlisted candidates

  • Supplied two appointable Business Analysts, with the final selection relying on character fit

  • Managed the full on-boarding process with the successful candidate who commenced the contract three weeks after the role was placed with us
