November 2014
Jobs in UK
POSITION: LMS Implementation Manager
LOCATION : London / Global
SKILLS REQUIRED : Cornerstone Knowledge Expert required to lead the global roll out of our client’s LMS system. Strong technical understanding required allied to a successful background in delivering complex implementation programmes on a global basis.
CLIENT : Major British Corporate with operations in over 80 countries worldwide
CHALLENGE: Due to the relative popularity of the product, we were working in an extremely limited market for skilled individuals. Utilising a mixed social media and search methodology normally associated with hiring permanent members of staff, the Eutopia team performed deep dive techniques to identify a short list of potential candidates. This was followed by an in-depth ‘sell’ of the client opportunity to cement candidate interest.
RESULT: The client was able to hire one of the industry’s top Implementation / Programme Consultants. The successful candidate (amongst a world class team) has made a significant difference to the overall success of this programme, becoming the ‘font of all knowledge’ on this key strategic business initiative.

POSITION: PMO Lead
LOCATION : City of London
SKILLS REQUIRED : Experienced PMO Lead experience with exposure to growing and running a busy Programme and Project office covering both IT and business change initiatives
CLIENT : Renowned not-for-profit organisation with ‘revenues’ of over £450m per annum
CHALLENGE: With a limited budget, the client was looking to hire on a fixed term basis as a route to ‘try-before-you buy’ – with a potential to convert to permanent should the candidate prove to be successful
RESULT: Eutopia’s Researchers were quickly able to present a long list of potential candidates with experience of working on both business and technology-enabled programmes. Eutopia worked with the client to select and on-board the successful candidate – tracking their performance on an ongoing basis through to engagement on a permanent basis.

POSITION: Data Migration & Cutover Manager
LOCATION : London
SKILLS REQUIRED : Extensive experience of data migration and cutover of complex data sets, online product experience allied to strong stakeholder management skills
CLIENT : International Specialist Business Intelligence Provider
CHALLENGE: Provide highly skilled data migration expert on a fixed term basis in a limited market of skilled individuals
RESULT: Working on a pre-planned project basis, Eutopia quickly presented a shortlist of 5 candidates, working with the client to reduce this to 3 and finally to the successful candidate. Due to the planned nature of the recruitment effort, candidates were aware of the hiring timeframe up front, leading to zero drop out and a successful outcome for the client.
Jobs in UK and Europe
POSITION: Head of Labs, Europe
LOCATION : Paris, France
SKILLS REQUIRED : Previous experience heading up Technology Labs, demonstrating ‘Proof of Concepts’ projects, leading to major strategic, business and technology transformation programmes. Also needed to possess a senior Data Science background (as much of the work was BI and data related). Allied to this, the successful candidate needed significant soft skills, dealing and advising at C Level in a Management Consulting role.
CLIENT : Global Technology Consulting organisation
CHALLENGE: In an attempt to catch up and overtake its competitors, our client created this flagship role – in what was an extremely tight market for likely candidates
RESULT: Using Eutopia’s Accelerated Search™ methodology, we compiled a shortlist of 8 target companies and all related individuals, prior to commencing candidate approaches. Most were immobile, and could not consider Paris as a location – however, one candidate (ex-Accenture) was willing to relocate and was quickly interviewed and offered. The client was delighted with the result – and successfully built its Technology Labs ahead of schedule.

POSITION: Business Intelligence (BI) Architect
LOCATION : London
SKILLS REQUIRED : Architecture within Informatica and using niche modular areas such as IDQ and B2B Data exchange.
CLIENT : Renowned not-for-profit with annual donations £450m+
CHALLENGE: As a green field implementation, the client required an Informatica SME. However, due to the nature of the organisation, hiring within budget was a critical issue. Eutopia sourced numerous candidates that were able to look beyond just financial incentives and see the bigger opportunity to help craft the client’s technology roadmap.
RESULT: Through an innovative marketing campaign, Eutopia attracted high calibre candidates, despite these salary constraints – with an initial long list presented to the client within 10 days of being briefed. Subsequently, the client successfully hired a candidate for this role – and Eutopia was able to build a world-class skills pool of Informatica candidates for use in further campaigns.

POSITION: Head of Business Transformation (Automotive sector)
LOCATION : Frankfurt, Germany
SKILLS REQUIRED : Previous experience heading up Business Transformation consulting teams with a heavy bias towards the automotive sector. Must have come from a Tier 1 or 2 Management / Technology Consultancy and, allied to this, the successful candidate needed significant soft skills, dealing and advising at C Level.
CLIENT : Global Technology Consulting organisation
CHALLENGE: The major challenge here was not necessarily finding likely candidates – although the skills pool was relatively small. The major challenge was persuading Tier 1 candidates to work for this Tier 2 (albeit fast-growing) Technology Consulting Practice.
RESULT: Again, using Eutopia’s Accelerated Search™ methodology, we compiled a shortlist of target companies and all related individuals. This was produced within 2 weeks, prior to commencing candidate approaches. One candidate (ex-CapGemini) was local to the client and was swiftly interviewed and offered. The client was delighted with the result – and since the appointment, has made significant in-roads note the pun) into the automotive marketplace.
Jobs in UK
POSITION: Principal Consultant, Big Data
LOCATION : London
SKILLS REQUIRED : Leading client engagements from a technical pre-sales perspective with an emphasis on Big Data
CLIENT : A ‘product’ company leading the way in Big Data and Cloud independence.
CHALLENGE: To identify candidates who could combine pre-sales and architectural technical experience within Big Data technologies.
RESULT: Through benchmarking candidates within the hiring company, Eutopia were able to technically and psychometrically test prospective candidates ensuring that the successful candidate would raise the internal ‘quality bar’. Through a number of unique sourcing methods and channels, Eutopia quickly identified two ideal candidates that were head and shoulders above the rest of the candidate pool – the client hiring one for the role – and identifying a second role for the other prospective candidate.
Jobs in UK
POSITION: Head of Infrastructure Consulting
LOCATION : City London / Bristol / Holland
SKILLS REQUIRED : Contributing to the strategy and thought leadership for the client’s Infrastructure Work Group, leading a team of up to 30 employees that would be aligned to the Global and EMEA Enterprise teams
CLIENT : A leading global Technology Consulting firm
CHALLENGE: After failing to identify candidates through their own extensive internal networks, Eutopia was approached to headhunt from a specific competitor Consultancy wish list
RESULT: Eutopia was able to produce a Long List of candidates from Tier 1 Consulting firms – via our GRT tm team based in Cape Town. Working in collaboration with this market-leading client, this was whittled down to the top three candidates who made the final round of interviewing. Against other competing agencies, Eutopia succeeded in recruiting an outstanding candidate for this role.

POSITION: SAP FI/CO Principal Consultant
LOCATION : Basle, Switzerland
SKILLS REQUIRED : Previous experience leading an SAP implementation in the Pharma domain – allied to experience successfully managing offshore resources. The ideal candidate would also possess significant soft skills, in particular managing senior Stakeholders and Business Heads to reach a consensual outcome.
CLIENT : Global Pharmaceutical company
CHALLENGE: The local and regional markets were long exhausted so a wider search was required to fill this role. Additionally, other Recruiting Firms had tried (and failed) to source for this role – so there was an element of market ‘exhaustion’ associated with this vacancy.
RESULT: Using a much broader and less recruitment-oriented approach (no databases – no point – they’d already been targeted), we made approaches to individuals visible on Social Media, other Internet sites (such as Blogs), Conferences etc. This broader approach opened up new markets, including candidates in Southern Europe, finally leading to the successful candidate (based in Spain) who was willing to relocate. Ultimately, the position was successfully filled – and the client was able to begin the process of getting their implementation back on track.

POSITION: Web / Online Agile Business Analysts (multiple)
LOCATION : Berkshire, UK
SKILLS REQUIRED : Agile business analysis skills gained on web, online or digital projects – ideally with eCommerce or telecoms portal experience – and strong Agile consulting skills
CLIENT : Large global Technology Consultancy and Systems Integrator
CHALLENGE: Sourcing high calibre individuals with minimal client/ candidate collateral in a competitive market for these skills
RESULT: Using every channels at our disposal, and fuelled by our Global Resource function, we quickly compiled a Long List of potential candidates within striking distance of Berkshire – to include those candidates who might consider relocation – or those who were locationaly flexible. Despite the client’s elongated interview process, Eutopia managed to recruit 4 candidates to the client’s new Agile Consulting business – with recruitment to this Practice ongoing at time of publishing this update.
