After noticing a talent gap within a mid-tier regulatory consultancy based in London, FourthLine reached out to help them establish and grow their FS regulatory consulting division by providing a talent solution.
With the previous employee who held this position having moved on, there was a lack of senior leadership talent to enable the business to grow. Although they had good junior staff in the team, the firm needed someone to lead.
After having worked with the firm previously, FourthLine saw this as a great opportunity to solve their operational issue and clear a pathway for future growth.
Due to the nature of the business, we knew that the right candidate would have not only a “sales mindset” that is good at winning business, but also have the technical expertise to talk to the right people and understand their needs.
As is common in most senior level appointments, the right person for the job had to be a fee earner, adept at developing strategy and be able to manage the delivery of the work they win.
Due to our deep understanding of the market, we already were proactive in creating talent pools of candidates that we knew would meet the client’s criteria.
Furthermore, because of our strong relationship with the client, we cultivated a deep sense of the culture of the business as well as their specific needs. This allowed us to provide an exceptional service and match the client with a Regulatory Consulting Partner that we knew would be the perfect fit.
Since making the placement, the firm has continued to use our services to help grow their business.
