Long Term Relationships Pay Off

Posted on January 3rd, by Lougie in Finance & Accounting Case Studies. Comments Off on Long Term Relationships Pay Off

Karen Epp, Recruiter for Finance & Accounting, makes it a point to maintain long-term relationships with both clients and candidates.  With 20+ years of experience as a recruiter, many candidates that Karen has placed in the past have progressed into managerial or executive positions.  They now use Karen to hire for their own teams.

Recently a Director of Finance with an International Company, who Karen has known for many years as he built his career, called her to find an Assistant Controller. He was mandated to work on the search without a recruiter but when the results were not what they needed he consulted with Karen.

Quickly, Karen was able to assess his needs and came up with a candidate that she interviewed three years previously. The candidate was a ‘star’ but not quite ready to make a change at that time. Since then, Karen kept an eye on him, knowing he was a great candidate. When the Director of Finance contacted her, she matched the two together for a very successful fit.
