Kind Consultancy was approached by the Chief Risk Officer of a challenger bank who was seeking to identify a new Head of Compliance following the previous incumbent moving on from the business. The Kind team had a face-to-face meeting with the CRO, taking a full brief of the role and building an understanding of the expectations for the Head of Compliance as an individual and how they fit into the bank’s wider business plans. We used all of this information to help the client draw up a detailed role profile.
We then set to work utilising a mix of methodologies to map the market and identify a list of relevant individuals who met client specifications and were at the top of their game in Compliance. The Kind team confidentially approached these candidates, and discussed their experienced and skillset but also their individual motivations and long term career aspirations. We submitted a shortlist of 4 candidates who had the relevant skills and expertise, but who we also knew were personally aligned with the values and goals of the bank.
We supported our candidates and the client throughout the interview process, and following a second stage interview an offer was made to and happily accepted by one of our candidates. We continued to check-in with our candidate and client, throughout their probation period to ensure both parties are fully satisfied with the placement.
