Case Study: Executive Search Firm - Chemicals Sector (Sole Trader)


Amidst a quiet 2020, a sole trader in the Chemicals Executive Search sector faced a sudden surge in mandates, creating an overwhelming workload that threatened project timelines.



Solution: To navigate this surge effectively, the headhunter sought my support and engaged in a collaboration for passive candidate mapping, outreach, candidate first interviews, and administrative assistance.


Implementation: The collaboration resulted in the mapping of 304 candidates, achieving a remarkable 79% outreach response rate, conducting 94 first interviews, shortlisting 11 candidates, and successfully placing one. The entire process, including a 10-hour free trial, spanned 72 hours and 4 minutes.


Outcome: The strategic partnership ensured the timely and successful delivery of all search mandates, maintaining a flawless 100% placement record. Additionally, 94 new candidates were registered, all of whom expressed high satisfaction with their experience.


By leveraging my expertise in passive candidate mapping and comprehensive recruitment support, the sole trader not only met but exceeded client expectations, turning a challenging scenario into a resounding success story.
