A look at how we’re making flexible working work for businesses across the southeast.

Our client Gallus asked us to find two professionals for their team: one to manage Business Development within the Marketing and Communications department, and one to manage Business & Project Support. These were new roles and had potential to be shaped around the right candidate.

We set about finding the right people to fill their roles. We work closely with our candidates (we call them Members), so we often have a good idea of who a client’s potential candidates might be at the outset. It wasn’t long before we had several Members to send for interviews, and Anna and Zoe were recruited.

Finding the right people for the job

Zoe joined Gallus as Business Development, Marketing & Communications Manager. She drives their strategic and operational plans in these areas. Zoe works full time but not in the conventional 9-5 pattern.

Zoe says, “I got in touch with Ten2Two shortly before my son was due to start school. My role in field sales meant that I covered a large geographical area and often worked long hours – difficult to juggle with school. I’d looked at alternative roles, but it was hard to find anything that combined flexibility with a challenging and progressive career. And then I found Ten2Two.

“My Marketing role at Gallus draws on my business skills but also offers a real challenge. I feel that I am an integral part of the team and I’m excited about the future at Gallus. Working flexibly is the perfect solution for me and my family.”

Anna joined just after Zoe, to manage their Business and Project Support. She makes sure their clients receive an amazing service and that their infrastructure is the best it can be. Anna presently works two full days per week and may well increase her hours over time.

Anna says, “Ten2Two gave me confidence they completely understood what I was looking for in my next role. They recognised my skills were transferable and offered encouragement throughout my search for a new position. I am really enjoying my new position at Gallus.”

Our client’s side of the story

Here’s what Gallus had to say about their Ten2Two experience:

“Working with Ten2Two was refreshingly different. We were impressed by their ability to understand our business model and culture. They also cleverly avoided the recruitment trap of just looking for people who had done the job before. They clearly understood our need to recruit for attitude, behaviour and future potential. Ten2Two managed the process seamlessly and with their help we found our two stars.”

Gallus helps organisations to achieve their ambitions, as well as making them great places to work. They build sustainable, high performance environments that everybody can believe in. You can find out more about them here.

Ten2Two is designed to be different

It’s always good to hear how we’re making a difference to organisations like Gallus. We exclusively focus on flexible professional roles, and we understand how companies work. So we can help companies target what they need, whilst balancing this with what they can afford.

If you think we could help your business or if you’re looking to find a role like Zoe or Anna have, please contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you.

It also had a lack of female role models and little […]
