Perfect Fit for a Close-knit Senior Team

01 May, 2018


The objective was to find and recruit a Non-Executive Director with both a rare and specific set of skills for a UK SME, specializing in the development of solutions for the Nuclear industry.  It was imperative that the candidate had the drive and personality to enhance a high-achieving and well-established management team.

The Challenge:

What made this assignment particularly challenging, was the  difficulty in finding a person with the right skills combined with the right personality to fit into a niche executive team.  The candidate needed both experience with regulatory and compliance issues in nuclear decommissioning, along with a Legal background or profile.

Managing the Task:

We began by producing extensive insights through industry and regulatory bodies, along with focusing our search on current professionals within the sector across the whole of the UK.  This produced a much wider pool of talent.


After careful interviewing and in-depth research around prospective candidates, we were able to shortlist three people within three months.  Our client was left with a tough but desirable problem of choosing the candidate from the 3 shortlisted who could effectively deliver within their niche management team.
