“We have worked with Maxwell Drummond on two key appointments. Both of which we had previously tried to fill using other agencies. We all found Craig and Phil a joy to work with – they are diligent in their approach and the key success factors works really well for us as a business” – HR Director
At Maxwell Drummond we were working alongside a market leading national construction business who reached out for support in finding a head of health, safety and Environment. This was a critical role of the company which they had been unsuccessful filling using other agencies. Maxwell Drummond used their new approach which guarantees to find someone who could influence their business. It was important for us to get to know the DNA of the company so that we could understand their cultures and values. The search began using a ‘blank canvas’ approach opposed to the ‘black book approach’ which had been used time and time again. We have the ability to reach talent that wouldn’t ordinarily be reached from using this approach and the success criteria which is what differentiates us from the competition.
There was repeat business for a General Manager role. This was undertaken using the same process and gaining the same results. The only difference was that this role was filled by a candidate who had used one of the other business streams called Talent Development. The individual worked with Andrew here at Maxwell Drummond where they believe that business success and personal development go hand in hand.
We also found the DISC profiles very helpful and Andrew’s input and analysis very insightful. Overall, a great team who helped us significantly and we hope to have opportunities to work with them again in the future.” – HR Director
Using Talent Development gives people the chance to utilize their own success criteria to help develop other behaviours in leadership roles. This company made the most of our business by using the Executive Search and Talent Development business streams gaining as much as they could from the service. It is believed the client would not have filled the role if it wasn’t for the Talent Development system.
“I would strongly commend this coaching approach as it was instrumental in my recent appointment with the company” – Director and General Manager
