We engaged Barclay Simpson’s financial crime team to undertake a search for a new role for us, Head of Fraud. As this function was a new development for the business we had limited prior knowledge of the market. Barclay Simpson took a lot of time to listen to our needs and then brief us on what we could expect from the market, what our competitive position was and what our budget ideally should be. In good time we were provided with a long list that gave us a good insight as to our options and then a detailed short list that provided us with a focused and consistent strategy for the position. This was a long process as the business needed to feel its way with the role, but it was very well managed with excellent communication maintained throughout keeping all parties engaged through to a successful conclusion.
We had struggled to fill this role directly at the right level and with the right experience. Barclay Simpson very quickly presented us with two very good candidates that both made it through to final stage interviews. One of them was successfully hired. The eventual hire was completed within a turnaround of four weeks after we had searched directly for a lot longer than that.
The thing that stood out for me was how incredibly thorough Barclay Simpson were in their approach to this requirement – we were highly impressed by the number of candidates supplied and by the breadth and skill level of the candidates they were able to present to us within the agreed timescales. We hired someone who we know is going to build out a best-in-class sanctions function. The business is delighted.
We received excellent service. Barclay Simpson not only really understood the blend of experience, skills and attitude we were looking for in a candidate but were also in control of the recruitment process throughout which made everything so much easier!
