Leadership Executive Search case study
A world-renowned charity contacted Ramsey Hall to lead the executive search for a new CEO. This recruitment followed a period of instability and perceived poor leadership within the charity. Change was essential for the survival of the organisation. This was against the backdrop of austerity and public sector cuts.
The brief was to recruit a candidate who could transform the leadership and governance of the charity. At the same time the role was focussed on leading the team to accelerate growth and charitable outcomes.
THE EXECUTIVE SEARCH SOLUTION
Our Executive Search researchers were instructed to identify potential candidates in similar roles whilst a national advertising campaign in The Sunday Times targeted not-for profit sector candidates.
Colleagues from The Occupational Psychology Group then worked with Ramsey Hall Executive Search to assess candidates and to facilitate client interviews between the candidates, the Nominations Committee and Ramsey Hall’s lead consultant using panel interviews. Our Consultants then advised the Nominations Committee to help them make the appropriate hiring decisions.
The client chose an emerging leader from a national charity which has a similar charitable mission. Restructuring and Leadership development complimented the executive search. These changes acted as a powerful catalyst for change with improved charitable outcomes and internal leadership.
