Sourcing a business development manager for Eurotech case study

 

The background

 
Following an internal restructure, a new business development manager role was created in the sales function. Eurotech had attempted to fill the position themselves and used various other agencies, but struggled to find the calibre of candidate they wanted in six months of searching.
 

The role

 
Business development manager
 

The solution

 
We met Eurotech to discuss the process and the recruitment issues. We discovered that they weren’t attracting the calibre of candidate they wanted because the salary level was too low. We convinced Eurotech to increase the advertised salary. We advertised the role online using our Reach Talent product, on michaelpage.co.uk, totaljobs.com, telegraphjobs.co.uk, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google.
 

The outcome

 
Within four weeks of the meeting, Michael Page Sales had successfully found a suitable candidate who was offered the role and accepted.
