Director of Clinical Governance

Executive Search Case Study

Executive Search
Our Client
Our client was the UK’s largest healthcare organisation of its type, with revenues approaching £150m, and a team of over 2,500 people operating across 50 sites nationally. They had recently completed a private equity backed merger and required a strong strategic leader to develop, integrate and lead a group governance infrastructure.
The Role
The role provides specialist advice to the Medical Director and the Chief Executive Officer on all matters related to clinical governance and assurance and to ensure the organisation continues to meeting the legal and statutory duties and responsibilities of the group.
The Team
Our team was headed by a Search Director with deep expertise in the industry. They were supported by an Assistant, Interview Expert and Psychometric Profiling Practitioner.
The Solution
We deployed our active sourcing methodology to source and generate applicants based on our research phase. We then implemented our selection strategy to long, then short list potential candidates. The active sourcing approach focused on candidates from the sector who we had identified through our research phase, applying our deep understanding of the space. We integrated a paid advertising strategy to complement this by attracting individuals from associated sectors or who met the criteria. As with all of our searches the process included professionally administered occupational personality profiling for all shortlisted candidates.
The Result
Our search generated 83 qualified candidates who met the strategic, technical and experiential requirements, most of whom were not actively searching for a new role. We then long-listed candidates for our initial interview process and 6 were subsequently selected for shortlisting and final interview. We additionally utilised our professionally administered occupational personality profile, benchmarked against our senior leader ‘norm’. Using all of the tools, together with our recommendations and the feedback from our occupational personality profiles, the successful candidate was offered the role, and accepted.
