The Client and Challenge:
A retail AI
platform provider who leverage computer vision, adapting to in-store formats to
provide advanced tracking algorithms to support shopper journeys.
As a fast-growth start-up, the business identified the need for a new Deployment Director role to catalyze their expansion. Without an established internal talent function, and because they had previously worked with us and seen our results first-hand, the business enlisted Gillespie Manners to support their search.
This hire was a priority for the business, and they needed somebody ready to start within 7 weeks from the commencement of the search.
Through continuous engagement and communication with the client, the Gillespie Manners team were able to share and gather feedback on candidates in real time, enabling quick-turnarounds on feedback and search criteria to effectively qualify candidates.
The successful candidate was taking part in multiple interview processes, which raised the stakes for our client who were eager to secure them. By managing the candidate relationship with great care, and advising the client, the team were able to expedite the offer process in order to secure the candidate.
