To demonstrate why we are the UK’s leading procurement and supply chain recruiters, find out below how we helped Kate find her dream role.
Kate had enjoyed a successful career as a management consultant within strategy and was looking to take the next step to a senior level position. Kate had always thrived in roles where her skills and experience would benefit both her and the company, long-term. In short, Kate wanted to work somewhere where her loyalty was appreciated, as well as her specialist skills. For Kate, it was as important to find somewhere with a good cultural fit as well as the right place for her to utilise and develop her technical skills.
Kate had been interested in opportunities within the procurement sector for a while and had spent a considerable amount of time exploring traditional recruitment processes - job boards, social media and generalist recruitment consultants - but found she wasn’t being presented with the right roles to consider, or getting the support and advice that she needed to guide her change of career.
Fortunately, Kate’s search led her to Bramwith Consulting.
How Bramwith Consulting helped
We’re always delighted to be approached by candidates of Kate’s calibre and enthusiasm for our sector. From the very first meeting, Kate knew she had found the right recruiter to help her find the perfect role. She knew we were industry specialists and that our dedicated consultants knew the sector inside and out. She was particularly impressed and reassured by the fact that we fill 100% of retainers with 85% in a 4-12-week period.
Here’s how we helped Kate.
1. Bramwith met with Kate to discuss her specific ambitions and requirements, both short and long-term. We matched her with one of our friendly consultants who would support Kate not only throughout her job search but for the whole lifecycle of her career - as long as she needed us.
2. Using our innovative information gathering processes we gained a comprehensive and accurate understanding of Kate’s technical skills, her logistic requirements, her ambitions and hopes and the kind of company culture she thrived in. Using this data alongside an open and honest discussion about the industry and what success might look like to her within it, we carefully selected a few of our clients that would be a good match for Kate, and vice versa.
As Bramwith work exclusively with our clients and enjoy highly-successful long-term relationships, we are able to offer a great deal of information and insights to our candidates. We put Kate firmly in the picture about how each company operated, the breadth of tasks and projects she would be given, the kind of atmosphere and perks she would enjoy and what sort of opportunities for career progression might be available. We were also able to advise on what the recruitment processes were like for each company.
3. Once Kate had identified an opportunity that fit her requirements, we spent some more time talking her through the next steps in the interview process including what questions she might be asked and made some suggestions on the things she might ask of them. We explained who she would be meeting with and what their responsibilities were in the company. We made sure Kate had plenty of time to ask us everything she needed and that she knew we were just a phone call or email away to clarify anything after her meetings. There’s nothing worse than feeling unsure or ill-informed when you’re making such an exciting career move.
4. Kate met with the client - a highly successful Fortune 500 business - and both parties were absolutely delighted with the match. An offer was soon made and accepted, and Bramwith handled all the contracts and paperwork so Kate was able to relax and concentrate on preparing to start her fabulous new role.
Kate spoke highly of the support she received at Bramwith: “I dare say that I made the right decision to join my new firm, primarily because of Bramwith and the help and support they provided throughout the entire process.”
Bramwith continues to stay in touch with Kate, making sure that the role and company remain aligned with her goals and career trajectory. The client has been incredibly happy with Kate’s performance and how she has fitted into their company culture. Kate’s career is going from strength-to-strength and we couldn’t be more proud or pleased for her.
