Global Finance Integration Lead
The board of a leading data company had recently agreed to appoint a well-known management consultancy to deliver a global ERP rollout in over 50 countries. In order to ensure a smooth integration, the decision was made to hire a Global Finance Integration Lead. They were seeking an individual to sit between the management consultancy and the finance teams in each country to make sure beneficial processes were agreed upon and implemented, and the benefits of the new system were realised. Effectively, the successful candidate would become the project lead for finance, championing the global finance function and managing the relationship with the third party.
Through the longlisting process, I introduced a candidate who was a known entity to our business. Not only had I demonstrated that operationally and from a budgetary perspective, the candidate was working at the correct level, but I could also effectively reference the candidate throughout their career, further underpinning the client’s confidence in the hire and process. We pride ourselves on building and maintaining long-lasting relationships with our clients and candidates. To this end, we have maintained weekly contact with the candidate and aim to keep in touch with the client on a monthly basis. We have also successfully recruited for additional roles within the business since this placement.
