Background: A Private Equity Fund focused on investments in high-growth technology and business services companies were seeking several hires for their team. They were keen to see candidates from a variety of backgrounds (investment banking, consulting and Big 4) meaning the relevant candidate population was large. They had previously used a variety of strategies to source candidates including advertising on LinkedIn and other recruitment firms.
Outcome: The Hiring Circle platform was able to cast the net wide over the relevant population reaching more candidates than would be possible with traditional search. Given the funds focused on tech-enabled businesses we also added a qualifying question regarding the candidates’ interest in technology which proved very useful as part of our screening process. Three candidates reached the final round (one from a boutique, one from Big 4 and one from a strategy consultancy) with an offer being made.
