Susanna had recently been made redundant from her previous role and needed to find a new job as soon as possible. After initial comprehensive discussions, it was clear that she was excited at the prospect of a new challenge, and understandably nervous about searching for a new role.
Andy analysed the situation with Susanna in great detail, listening to her concerns and preferences and highlighted the different options available to her. Once he had gained the necessary information, Andy was able to search for suitable roles and presented Susanna with a vacancy at an agency that required someone with her background.
Susanna was selected for the position after a face-to-face interview, which she gladly accepted. Furthermore, Susanna was offered more than the amount she was looking for, along with extra perks to ensure she was comfortable and happy to commit long term, all of which was managed by Andy to ensure a smooth transition process.
"This was very rewarding for me as a consultant, Susanna contacted us looking for help. I found an agency that was willing to create a position for her. She got a pay rise and her ideal role."
