We started working with McKinsey in October 2021 and it was vital for us to get off to a positive start by making an early placement and build a solid relationship with the Talent Acquisition team.
McKinsey were a brand new client so it took time to understand their exact needs and processes for their requirements.
Initially we scheduled weekly calls with members of McKinsey’s talent team to discuss candidates in the process and where we were going right and wrong. This was vital as it allowed us to understand exactly what we needed to search for and it helped solidify our relationship with the team.
We managed to place a candidate after only 2 months of working together which is a really positive result considering the interview process takes up to 6 weeks.
This placement helped prove our capabilities and opened up other requirements with McKinsey and improved our relationship going forward as they were impressed which what we achieved.
Wipro had to carefully and tactfully replace a Regional Head for Risk and Compliance for UK&I who had resigned. They had tried to fill the role themselves within the 3 months, but were down to 8 weeks, with no candidates in play.
We found a candidate who had the perfect level of experience, but was happily employed within a top tier Consulting firm and had been for 15 years. He had little desire to move.
Disruptive was asked to find a candidate that could not only start at the level to cover a single region, but would then be happy and capable to quickly expand the region for management. This was from the UK&I to EMEA. They could not find anyone and had 8 weeks to onboard.
We worked closely with the Talent Manager tasked with finding the replacement.
Highly detailed spec and regular cadence calls to keep traction. No meetings with the hiring manager were required as the talent manager and the Disruptive Client Partner work efficiently together with a strong understanding of the account.
Disruptive successfully found a candidate who was directly well connected through their network with the internal hiring managers at Wipro. His skills, experience and cultural fit perfectly matched the role. His length of service and achievements meant that he would be able to quickly take over the wider regional role for Europe.
Disruptive stayed close to the candidate and communications were regular and detailed. Once he started, the candidate was engaged with regularly to make sure his first days and weeks were successful. Longer term communications are planned and will be executed over the first 100 days and 6 months of settling in.
