Consultant Name: Laura Barrett
Job Title: Partner – Interim & Contract
Industry Sector: IT Services
Role: Field Marketing Specialist
Locations: London & Stockholm
When a global professional services company providing IT consulting and services required temporary support to their Nordics marketing team, they approached Marketing Moves’ Partner for Interim & Contract Recruitment, Laura Barrett to deliver this vital project.
Focused on the Microsoft platform with business analytics, business applications, cloud, digital marketing, technology and managed services offerings, a global IT Consulting & Services company required temporary support to their Nordics marketing team to cover the recruitment process for a permanent hire and the subsequent notice period of the new hire.
The role covered event management for both major international and local events, acting as project manager. Additionally, it required aspects of digital, paid, PPC and social campaigns, as well as content creation.
The successful applicant would be a Swedish speaker, based in London, available immediately, with strong comms, content and events experience – not something you come across every day! Not only did the ideal candidate have to have this skill set and language ability – they also had to be able to travel between both London and Stockholm on a regular basis!
With time of the essence, Laura immediately set to contacting her network and database of contractors. At incredibly short notice, she provided a shortlist of candidates with the relevant language skills and immediate availability.
After reviewing the initial shortlist, the client conducted both video calls and face-to-face interviews with a selected number of applicants before selecting the successful candidate. The candidate had experience of planning and executing different kinds of events, digital paid social campaigns and managing agencies. She also had a good understanding and knowledge of the Swedish IT environment, was a strong communicator, very results driven and able to manage multiple stakeholders.
“This was a more niche requirement due to the extra skillset and language requirements, so it was ensuring that we were working closely to this as well as making sure we had someone on board asap!”
