Client: Timber Importer
Job role: Sales Director
A newly set up company breaking into the UK market urgently needed to recruit an experienced candidate within the timber sector.
Essentially, they needed to be able to develop a sales and marketing strategy to gain business from scratch with Builders Merchants, Timber Merchants, and major DIY chains as well as larger end-users and Contractors.
It was essential to put forward candidates specifically with confidence and a background in the required area.
The client committed to giving ARV Solutions exclusivity, enabling us to commit fuller resources and time to the role. Within 24 hours we had commenced resourcing and advertising for the role. We shortlisted 4 candidates and within 9 days 3 had been interviewed.
Both first and second interviews took place over a 2 week period resulting in all candidates maintaining their interest. At the end of the 2 weeks, an offer was made and accepted by the successful candidate. Duration from brief to hire was 6 weeks.
