Hewitt Stone was drafted in to help them source a suitable candidate for a highly specialised pricing requirement.
There was a clear need to find a highly technical actuary with specific software skills. However, due to structural changes, the business was unable to consolidate on the plans to make this hire.
There were positive structural changes underway, which coincided with the timing for the required additional head-count.
Having already worked to generate a shortlist of candidates that would be a strong fit for the business, we had to put the process on hold until the internal transformations were complete.
Our dedication to the client meant that our attention never deviated; regular communication was maintained and we kept abreast of developments. We also ensured that we kept the shortlisted candidates receptive through regular, open and honest communication, and ensured time-line expectations were properly managed.
Upon completing the aforementioned transformations which lasted a few months, we were able to reactivate the suitable candidates for the role and successfully filled the vacancy.
