Case Studies

Challenge – An English-based company moving into Ireland territory found us on Google and wanted to know if we could help them fill a very highly niche sales role, dealing with children with learning difficulties. It was complex; the sales person had to display consultative and empathetic qualities but also assertiveness and determination to promote their products to public bodies in the middle of the deepest recession and period of austerity.

Solution – Rather than bring the client over, we used online video and asked candidates deliver a presentation about the company, the products, the buyer and market. The most suited candidate was so well matched that the client was hesitant to offer the role on the belief that the person knew so much that “he must have been from a competitor”. We assured them and 7 years later, he is bringing great success to the firm and supporting thousands of families throughout Ireland. Well done Stephen.

Challenge – Large global legal firm in Belfast was committed to the appointment of a new Head of Social Marketing but local efforts to recruit directly were failing to generate suitable candidate.

Solution – Abacus provided technical assessments for all shortlisted candidates then each person selected for interview completed a psychometric assessment profile. This helped the company focus on people who matched culture, environment and focus of their business.

Challenge - An International manufacturing company were looking to recruit for someone to join their Sales team (a new role within the company).  We met with the client to fully understand the nature of the role and explored how this person would fit into the culture and comprehend the level of resources available to present the brand globally. From the original list of candidate CVs sent, our favourite wasn’t selected for interview!

Solution – We took the risk and challenged this decision, strongly suggesting they interview the applicant.  In short, the skills matched perfectly and after two interviews in two days, our recommendation was welcomed. The person won two promotions within 18 months.
