Over our 15-year history, Spotlight Recruitment has worked with many innovative agencies, recruiting on their behalf across areas including advertising, digital, design, media, and events. One client we have partnered with is a global digital agency which operates on a fully remote basis in multiple countries. Due to rapid growth, they approached our team with the goal of hiring approximately twenty roles to massively expand their team, across various areas including strategy, social media, design, account management and planning.
Although this was our first time working with this particular client, we were confident that our vast experience working with digital agencies would lead to successful recruitment for all roles. Due to the high volume of roles this client was hiring for, we devoted a dedicated team for this project in order to focus on finding ideal candidates for every role. The various roles were allocated to consultants with specialist recruitment experience in that area, such as social media or design. We followed our usual process of generating a dedicated recruitment campaign for each type of role, then conducting extensive executive search. As a result of the initial search, our team then conducted a thorough interviewing and shortlisting stage to ensure that only the most suitable candidates are presented to the client.
From each first round of candidates presented for each individual role, a minimum of two to three highly relevant individuals were selected to interview via Zoom. For this client, a fully remote company, the interview process consisted of two online video interviews, with the second stage typically involving a task.
After some dedicated, hard work from Spotlight Recruitment team to assist many successful interviews, our client onboarded many of our candidates and expanded their global team. With such a mammoth recruitment task at hand, this is a prime example of the ease and efficiency our team can introduce into the recruitment process. We were pleased to have successfully recruited for all of these roles, and it’s been wonderful to watch the whole teams’ careers flourish within the agency. We were honoured to be involved with such a monumental stage of the agency’s growth, and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
