POSITION: Head of Business Transformation (Automotive sector)
LOCATION : Frankfurt, Germany
SKILLS REQUIRED : Previous experience heading up Business Transformation consulting teams with a heavy bias towards the automotive sector. Must have come from a Tier 1 or 2 Management / Technology Consultancy and, allied to this, the successful candidate needed significant soft skills, dealing and advising at C Level.
CLIENT : Global Technology Consulting organisation
CHALLENGE: The major challenge here was not necessarily finding likely candidates – although the skills pool was relatively small. The major challenge was persuading Tier 1 candidates to work for this Tier 2 (albeit fast-growing) Technology Consulting Practice.
RESULT: Again, using Eutopia’s Accelerated Search™ methodology, we compiled a shortlist of target companies and all related individuals. This was produced within 2 weeks, prior to commencing candidate approaches. One candidate (ex-CapGemini) was local to the client and was swiftly interviewed and offered. The client was delighted with the result – and since the appointment, has made significant in-roads note the pun) into the automotive marketplace.
