An exclusive search project for a German multinational company

The challenge:

Our client, a German multinational, urgently needed to appoint a Head of Finance in Egypt within a very short timeframe. After suffering communication difficulties with candidates and local recruitment agencies in Egypt, they appointed us to be a single, trusted point of contact.

Our solution:

Our regional expertise meant that we not only knew their competitors very well but were also able to leverage our referral network from the Middle East to access a pool of top FMCG Egyptian talent. Considering all the senior Finance professionals in all MNC’s within FMCG too, we had the market mapped within 48 hours. Our flexible pricing structure meant that we were able to complete the project for a flat fee based on role seniority and location.

The outcome:

  • We presented five CV’s within the first 48 hours that all went to interview as they were from competitors

  • Interviews were arranged within a week; the process was fast, and the candidate was placed within a month

  • The hiring manager was very happy with the experience and the candidate we placed has since provided a testimonial
