The Question

One of our many lovely clients is a creative agency just outside of Basingstoke who we’ve worked with before to find office support skills. They came back to us again with a different question this time. Could we help them find the senior marketing skills they needed to move them through the next growth phase?

Would we have anyone looking for a 25 hour a week part-time senior marketing role?

The Answer

Yes and Yes were the answers.  With over 2500 candidates registered within 5 miles of Basingstoke, we knew we would certainly have some great skills as well as connections for candidates. And many who would be interested in a part-time senior marketing role.

Successful candidates completed a 10-minute telephone interview and a face-to-face interview with the business owners. They then had a final presentation with the wider team. This allowed the business owners to really hone in on what was important to them for this role going forward.

The Outcome

An offer was made for a very flexible 3 days a week.  Spread over 2 full office days, 1 part home based day and then the remaining hours to be home worked as needed.

Client is very happy. They’ve taken on a very accountable senior marketing professional who will create the stringency and get on with the daily doings.

Candidate is super happy. They can get her teeth into what they love, make a significant difference.  And still wrap their role around their other commitments.  All without commuting to London.

Job done!
