Case studies & testimonials:
Head of Financial Planning - successful and respected law firm
We were contacted by the firm, as this was a senior appointment, and whilst the client had already met some strong candidates, they hadn’t quite met the brief. The role was very attractive, but as the firm is based outside of London, the available talent pool was smaller than normal.
Fram followed our six-step proven process, which includes the following:
- We arranged a client meeting to understand the firm and culture, to clearly define the role, and to clarify the profile of the ideal candidate
- We started a process of networking, database search, and intensive research to identify qualified candidates
- We approached suitable individuals to engage them in a conversation
- We assessed individuals’ skills ensuring they meet the client’s criteria
- We arranged interviews and advised both parties throughout
We were exclusively appointed by the client, and we shortlisted within four weeks of being briefed. This resulted in a highly qualified candidate being appointed, who has since gone on to be a very successful hire.
Fram's contingent success rate is nearly three times the industry average -
