Talent Acquisition Director

Consumer goods company in double digit growth mode needing support to hire now and for the short-mid term to be able to effect global market expansion plans; but with a poor track record for delivering on hiring promises both internally and externally.

Remit challenges- to provide internal consultancy support on a range of talent acquisition factors inclusive of employer branding, consistency of positive candidate experience, creation of graduate/entry level hiring schemes, support for D&I initiatives, provision of data to support with MI and market trends, cost containment with multiple agency and RPO's in place, and input in broader HR initiatives inclusive of R&B to enable better attraction and retention of globally scarce talent.

Hiring challenges - finding a technically proficient TA specialist who could balance operational delivery with strategic interventions for TA functions around the world, each at varying stages of delivery and framework maturity; to provide strategy, policy and tools to support extreme business growth; to influence via a recently effected CofE model. High need for a professional with a regulatory and cultural awareness across vastly different countries; with advanced technical ability and a consulting mindset; with at least fluent English and Spanish language skills; to be based from Mexico City; with the career runway to be a high performer now and a likely successor to their HR leader within a short timeframe; and global mobility for further career progression within the corporation. Role had already been open for over 5 months with the internal talent acquisition team - the TA community were understandably thus sceptical of the role and the employer given it was well known that the role had already been “live” for so long.

Solution - 5 professionals were recommended after a global search by Carter Morris, and a successful transfer was made of a professional from Europe into Mexico City.
