Sector: Security Cleared (SC/DV) Date Added: 04/03/15

Client Case Study - Management Consultancy (SC/DV)

Nick Snelling works closely with a number of IT consultancies to provide resource for high profile projects that require skilled technology talent with security clearance. One of Nick’s clients is a global management consultancy who provide a wide range of solutions across many sectors. With such a large scope of work, it has been critical that we understand the entire business and their end clients.

Key to the success in managing the recruitment process for such a large organisation is the structure of our specialist team which includes one key point of contact as an Account Manager (in this case, Nick) and a team of skilled Consultants, each with their own specialist area of expertise. This is in addition to the collaborative support of over 45 people across the business who provide assist during large recruitment campaigns.

Here's what the Recruitment Manager at Nick’s client had to say when our brand agency interviewed him:

Which skills / roles do you use People Source for?

Specialists with specific industry backgrounds who are hard to find and therefore we will pay a premium for.

How long have you worked with People Source?

2 years.

Describe what People Source offer

Nick is accomplished, upfront, has integrity, is trustworthy, honest, and delivers.

What do they do well?

They don’t waste time; are competent and you can see that they invest time in people.

Words to describe People Source:

Nick stands out – we get on well


Trust - I let him speak directly to my clients which is rare

I prefer to use Nick – should consider using him as an example / role model within the company [training etc].

Have you referred/recommended People Source?

Anything you’d like to add?

People Source is specialist and has a USP in being able to source difficult to find individuals. They understand my job and understand my time which a lot of agencies don’t tend to do.
