VP of International Benefits

Consumer goods company wanting to centralise and streamline what had been historically a fragmented benefits team operating in silos. High profile role given recent media publicity on benefits compliance issues and financial waste.

Remit challenge - to effect a comprehensive benefits audit across multiple countries (with historically poor MI and systems) with a view to ensuring compliance and identifying any risk; subsequently building a more robust benefits framework to prevent any future issues; to contribute to talent attraction, engagement and retention in a globally niche skill labour market; to make ongoing recommendations for commercial synergies.

Hiring challenges - finding a professional with at least bilingual language skills, with deep audit and statistical analysis expertise, plus strong interpersonal skills with the ability to influence all levels of stakeholders in a relationship driven culture. The local market for potential talent was tiny for professional with the extent of multi country expertise required so relocation was a potential factor.

Solution - Carter Morris utilised their extensive networks across EMEA/APAC countries to find a selection of high calibre professionals. 4 were recommended within 2 weeks of taking the hiring brief, and the successful hire was effected with the relocation of a professional from South Africa to India. The candidate has since been promoted twice within the broader global HR function since commencing.
