Internal reviews of existing and new businesses identified the need to leverage higher calibre and quality staff for head office, regions and Contracts / Projects accounting & finance staff amongst other functions including Procurement, HR and Contract Management. The Group MD and the CFO sought to make step changes in the level and capability of these teams and at the same time reduce the number of temporary staff within the whole business community in London and the rest of the UK.

Several key objectives were highlighted, including:

    - Development & replenishment of the existing teams and the increase in depth of capability & calibre of individuals within the organisation which has under gone rapid growth and business transformation
    - Identifying commercially and technically focused individuals to evolve best practice in Accounting & Finance, Procurement, HR and Contract Management specifically in planning & analysis, forecasting, reporting commercial financial control

Harcourt Matthews has established several recruitment campaigns and range of candidate sourcing processes to attract a wide range of candidate types encompassing:

    - Accessing our network & extensive CV database, existing contacts and gaining new referrals / recommendations
    - Accessing several jobsite CV databases covering the active UK candidate market
    - Advertising on several job boards
    - Using our internal and several 3rd party outsourced research businesses contracted to identify and to supply scarce candidate resource (passive & non active people)
    - Specific sector headhunting campaigns complementing the above approach
    - Direct mail-shot programmes to specific accounting & finance trained CIMA, ACCA and ACA individuals who fulfilled the Accounting & Finance brief

This has resulted in the successful recruitment of several qualified accountants & part qualified accountants and Procurement, HR and Contract Managers and inclusion as a preferred supplier list for the UK business.
