Big Four Professional Services Firm: Case Study

Our client is one of the largest professional services firm in the world, employing over 200,000 people, providing a range of services through their global network.



Following the recruitment of a Lead Partner to manage one of their technology practices they had an immediate requirement to recruit a significant number of experienced consultants, from Manager to Partner level, with expertise in digital solutions.

Volume recruitment within a small talent pool is always challenging and within this skill area there is a high demand for individuals with proven consulting

In addition, while our client has an excellent brand they were not as prominent in this market as the organisations we were researching in to.



New Street’s Talent Consulting Practice provided a research led solution to create a stream of talent that would be able to fulfil existing and future requirements.

Our in-house research function used a blend of phone and online research methods to identify talent across a target list of six globally-recognised consulting firms with established practices in a niche digital market.

Working closely with our client’s internal recruitment function,New Street prioritised individuals of interest and approached those people to assess them further against the organisations requirements and to generate interest in the opportunities our client had to offer.



New Street generated significant candidate interest, identifying 249 individuals, engaging 96 with 57 interested in opportunities within our client. This supported our
client’s existing requirements and also sparked engagement with other individuals for future opportunities.

The incoming talent has enabled our client to grow its client base within this niche market. In addition to generating candidates, New Street were able – through the research
conducted – to provide valuable intelligence on the specific talent landscape.

This included the perception of our client’s employer brand, benchmarking and trends within the market. All such intelligence was documented and provided to our client to help inform future talent strategies in this area.
