The McLean Partnership was retained to manage the search for a Development Director to lead the development arm of a global construction business. The role would have full accountability for the acquisition of prime land opportunities and the sale of developed sites throughout the UK. The hiring Director was keen to consider a diverse range of candidates with differing levels of experience.
We undertook an extensive, targeted mapping exercise and approached over two hundred candidates with the relevant skills from direct competitors as well as those who sat within the wider development market. McLean ensured that the shortlist met the client’s equality and diversity policy.
We quickly delivered a diverse shortlist of 10 candidates that fulfilled the client’s requirements. Three candidates were taken forward to the final interview stage and despite difficult market conditions and multiple counter offers, McLean secured a first rate candidate for final placement.
