Global VP Health and Safety Case Study

Ardlinn Work
After a year of unsuccessful searching, a Global Energy company turned to Ardlinn to assist them in finding a Global VP Health & Safety.

The Challenge

Ardlinn Executive Search was retained by a Global Energy company to find a Global VP of Health & Safety in late October 2015, with the successful candidate to be based in either in the US or Western Europe. The organisation had been seeking the right candidate for over 12 months and had used a number of other recruitment companies without success.

Ardlinn’s Approach

Ardlinn produced a target list of 60 International companies and a longlist of 519 potential candidates. We successfully made contact with 264 candidates. 146 were eliminated due to their location and experience. 118 telephone interviews were conducted with 41 candidates progressing to a face-to-face interview with us. A final shortlist of 8 candidates was submitted to the client in mid-November, all of whom were telephone screened by the client.

The Result

Four candidates were invited to the client’s European office for a final interview, and the successful candidate was offered and accepted the role in December.

Due to the success of this search, the client has retained Ardlinn to find a Global Director of Environmental Sustainability.

Client Testimonial

“Ardlinn were methodical and professional in their approach to filling this particularly challenging role for us and within seven weeks had found us our ideal candidate. We were so impressed by the speed of delivery that we are now working in partnership with Ardlinn on another very strategic role for our organization. I would highly recommend Ardlinn as one of the top International search firms we have ever engaged.”
