Wigan & Leigh Hospice, like many organisations in the hospice sector, faced the challenge of future funding constraints and limitations to income generation. To address this and ensure long-term sustainability, they looked to appoint a Business Development Director.
After an unsuccessful attempt to recruit suitable candidates directly, Jo Carby, CEO of Wigan & Leigh Hospice and the HR Team, turned to Executive Recruit.
“Executive Recruit's ability to understand our requirements and their commitment to providing us with a diverse range of high-quality candidates was impressive.”
- Wigan & Leigh Hospice successfully recruited Clare Cooke as their new Director of Business Development through Executive Recruit, after an attempt to find suitable candidates directly.
- Executive Recruit’s extensive network and expertise in the charitable sector provided a diverse selection of candidates, resulting in the successful appointment of Clare Cooke.
- Despite limited availability, Executive Recruit and the in-house team managed to schedule a comprehensive assessment day for the candidates, including site visits, a case study assessment, a presentation, and a panel interview.
- Clare has seamlessly integrated into the senior management team and is already impressing, recruiting a new team and demonstrating potential for success in her role.
