Group Financial Controller Case Study

“Always well briefed and
represents GfK well”

GfK is a leading Technology & Consumer Insight business that partners with & advises clients globally to maximise performance from their data. They are a German-listed business with offices across Europe, Asia & US. We have exclusively partnered with GfK on several projects across their finance team & successfully placed permanent, contract & interim staff over this 5-year relationship.

In a recent project, we worked closely with the Group Talent Director & FD to support a replacement for the Group FC, who was leaving on a six-month secondment. Whilst the skill set & availability for someone to start at short notice was vital, the role also had broader management responsibility. We needed to ensure the individual also fitted well into the wider business.

Within ten days of taking the initial brief, we supplied a comprehensive shortlist, arranged 1st & 2nd stage interviews & managed the offer & acceptance for the chosen candidate. Using a blend of referrals from our existing network and technology to benchmark the current market, we secured someone to start at short notice and begin the handover process.

We have partnered with The Consulting Group numerous times over the last five years, and they have provided GfK UK with quality candidates in a timely manner. TCG’s candidates meet the vacancy requirements but also have the persona we seek; they are always well briefed and understand the role, relevant projects/challenges, our UK business and GfK company culture. Dan Brown, in particular, has provided us with a high level of service for mid-senior level finance hires, both permanent and interim. Dan provides candidates with a thorough understanding of the vacancy, represents GFK UK well and guides us through an open & transparent offer process with his candidates.
