Since 2008, Spotlight Recruitment have worked with many executive search and recruitment clients, recruiting on their behalf for roles across areas including marketing, communications, design, and digital. One of our valued clients, a leading global executive search organisation, recently approached the Spotlight Recruitment team and tasked us with sourcing a Senior Marketing Executive to join their growing marketing team.
This client was looking to onboard an experienced Senior Marketing Executive to lead on producing global content and engaging campaign plans. Our team were briefed that the ideal candidate would have strong experience in content creation and executing campaign plans in a business-to-business or professional services background. In terms of characteristics, the team were looking for an organised and proactive individual, with the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team. We were assured that our vast experience with this client and in-depth knowledge of their culture would enable us to fill this role promptly. So, we allocated a dedicated Account Manager, who had a strong understanding of this client’s needs, who produced a tailored recruitment campaign that would allow us to reach the ideal candidates. After conducting rigorous executive search, the Account Manager further condensed the pool of candidates via a stringent interviewing and shortlisting process, which ensured that we only put forward the most relevant candidates to the client.
From the initial set of candidates presented to the client, three individuals were shortlisted to interview as a result of their well-matched experience. The interview process involved a first-stage video call, and a second stage in-person meeting to present a campaign planning task. With two of these candidates attending a second-stage interview, one candidate in particular stood out and presented a stellar campaign plan and was offered the role of Senior Marketing Executive. The duration of this process was just over four short weeks from role briefing to an offer, accentuating the speed and ease that Spotlight Recruitment can add to recruitment. We were delighted to fulfil he recruitment of yet another role for this client, and we are eager to continue this enriched, successful relationship.
