Resourcing a Programme Manager

We helped a global investment management firm resource a complex global programme demanding specialist understanding

The challenge

Our client, a global investment management company based slightly outside of London, phoned to ask whether we could assist with the sourcing of a very senior Programme Manager to work on a high profile, complex global programme

The programme was the implementation of a number of different systems, to enable better communication between regions. Client reporting was a key area of concern and the ideal candidate would have extensive knowledge of the different platforms available, and would be able to lead the organisation through the supplier selection process

An additional complexity was the difficult, outside-of-London location

Our approach

A former client of ours from a global investment management organization had just taken voluntary redundancy, and having worked with him for upwards of a decade, various members of the PEN team knew that he would fit the bill perfectly. He had all the desired knowledge of client reporting systems, and excellent supplier selection/management skills

Interviews were duly arranged

The outcome

Our candidate was pleased to be offered an initial 12 month contract which was later extended

He then needed to resource contract Business Analysts to work on this programme, and we were pleased to assist him in this recruitment too
