Search for an online Sales & Marketing Director
The Morland division of Interior Products Group Ltd. was delivering £26m sales across multiple channels. They needed a new Sales & Marketing Director to lead and inspire the team to even greater heights.
They required someone who understood the niche markets they serviced – caravan and boat interiors, and fire doors – as well as being an ecommerce specialist. Following an exploratory meeting, Seymour John was retained to undertake a bespoke search. This would include advertising, and competency-based interviewing, to supply the client with a considered, fit-scored shortlist.
Seymour John uses industry leading search technologies to proactively scour candidate profiles across LinkedIn, CV Library, Reed and Totaljobs. We combined this approach with targeted advertising to generate a range of suitable candidates. Over 100 candidates were considered. We selected the most suitable 13 to go through a detailed competency-based interview, which carefully aligned our client’s priorities around fit. These were scored and ranked against each other so we could present a considered set of interview recommendations.
Three of our five shortlisted candidates were offered a second interview. An offer was made and accepted, the successful candidate relocating with their family to the area.
