Strategy Director - multinational toy company

​One of the largest multinational toy companies in the world was looking for a Strategy Director, APAC.​

The client previously contacted another recruitment agency on this newly created vacancy but they were unsuccessful in filling the role after eight weeks. ​

Through a referral, Argyll Scott was engaged to source for a strong shortlist of candidates and fill this urgent position within a short timeframe. ​

The challenge:​

  • As the opening was previously handled by another agency, a number of suitable candidates had already been approached​

  • There was a pressure to deliver within a short timeframe as the vacancy had been open for a long time​

  • There was a degree of ambiguity in the search mandate as it was a newly created position reporting into someone overseas​

Our approach:​

  • Immediately called the five best relevant candidates and cleared them for the client​

  • Managed both the client’s and candidates’ side to ensure a smooth outcome​

The outcome:​

Offer Accepted: ​Strategy Director, APAC​

Completed Time:​ Four weeks​
