I told my client how to hire a Head of Strategy in a third tier city in China.
They refused and tried their own way. 🤷♂️
After 9 months they called and said:
‘You were right Alex. Let’s do it your way.’ 💡
The location wasn’t attractive.
Yet the client wanted top candidates with MBB background.
We took the time to deeply understand the candidate’s motivations and family situation.
We found an innovate solution by thinking outside the box on candidate profile and work setup.
Client was happy, candidate was happy.
If you have a senior hire to make but don’t have 9 months to waste, get in touch.
