The Challenge.

We had already established a superb working relationship with The Goodwood Group when they set us the challenge of finding a Senior Marketing Manager for a key interim position. The brief? This person was needed ASAP for six months to manage the launch of their exciting new BMW Ultimate Driving Experience Day, which makes use of the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit and 12,000 acres of ancient woodland. Cue the green light!

The Solution.

The individual needed to be a perfect company fit, highly skilled, and extremely passionate about motorsport. We decided to carry out a headhunt and also use our industry leading ‘Ready List’, and soon found that one of our team was already engaged with an individual with extensive motorsport event experience who could quickly mobilise for an interim opportunity. Race over!

The Result.

A high quality individual with significant motorsport experience, including events, media and automotive broadcast, was appointed in a very quick timeframe. Indeed, our ability to act in a proactive and timely manner, thus significantly reducing time to hire, helped us to further strengthen our relationship with the client and ensure we maintained clear visibility of their future recruitment needs. We continue to work with The Goodwood Group, in particular within marketing, where further key placements have since been made.

They really understand the kind of people we need. They mention a few names straight away and have them on the phone later that day. That's priceless!
