Within Spotlight Recruitment’s 15 years of recruitment expertise, we have worked with a variety of pharmaceutical clients, recruiting across marketing, events, digital, design and communications. One client, a prestigious professional pharmaceutical membership body recently appointed our team to assist in the recruitment of a Marketing Executive to join their expanding marketing team.
We were briefed that our client was seeking an experienced Marketing Executive to support the Engagement Manager in executing marketing and communications plans. Our team were told that the ideal candidate would be educated to degree level in marketing (or possess a professional marketing qualification), as well as having some prior experience in email marketing, market research, and working with databases. Though we had not worked with this client previously, our team has a large network of over 95,000 followers on LinkedIn, so we were extremely confident that we could source some talented marketers. Our team commenced our stellar process which involved allocating a specialist Account Manager to lead the creation of a tailored recruitment campaign. The Account Manager then searched for relevant candidates, conducting their own interview and shortlisting stage to assess their previous experience and ensure that candidates presented to the client were a great fit.
From the first selection of candidates reviewed by our client, four individuals were selected for interview. The process for this role involved two interviews: the first stage being an online video interview, and the second stage being an in-person meeting in their office. After a successful first stage, two highly relevant candidates were chosen to meet with senior management for the second stage. As a result, our client decided to offer this role to the candidate who seemed like a great cultural fit within the team, to which they swiftly accepted. Our focus is always on a streamlined recruitment process, ensuring a transparent line of communication with candidates and working closely to ensure results are achieved. Spotlight Recruitment were delighted to have filled this Marketing Executive role, and we would be delighted to assist this client with their recruitment needs again in the future.
