Working with the Global Head of Consulting (based in London), The McLean Partnership was engaged to run a search for a regional Head of Workplace Strategy Consulting for Asia, based in Singapore. The client wanted to explore individuals coming out of competitor consulting firms in the region, those willing to relocate into the region and those in client organisations.
We worked closely with the Global Head to identify a target list both in and out of the region with specific emphasis on those individuals who had previous experience working with or for international blue chip organisations. Approaches were made in the UK leading to a shortlist of candidates who were interviewed face-to-face on a trip to Hong Kong and Singapore.
A UK expat was appointed who was working for a competitor in the region. The initial appointment then led to two additional hires as the incumbent sought to build a team to grow the service line.
