Exclusive Permanent Recruitment Assignment

Exclusive Permanent Assignment

The Challenge

The requirement

  • Private Fintech company owner wanted a GM to take business to the next level
  • GM needed to be multi-talented focussed on operations, sales and an expert in the payments industry.

The salary package

  • Base salary was 50% of market rate with benefits made up in equity based on performance. It was high risk but high reward.


  • Needed to start immediately.
  • The client did not have time to interview and just wanted a turnkey solution.

Multiple suppliers

  • Two other recruitment providers already engaged.
  • No candidates submitted yet.

Logical’s Approach

  • After listening to the scope of the role Logical laid out their strategy on how they would approach this assignment
          • Enticing advertising to appeal to the entrepreneurial, stating the very low salary as a positive. The low salary accentuated the long-term earning potential as one of the upsides of the opportunity.
          • Extensive use of Logical’s professional networks for referrals.
          • Use of Logical’s recruitment partners who would know (and indeed did know) great candidates in this area.
          • Enforcing an NDA to protect valuable IP
          • Logical would release information on a need-to-know basis to protect the recruitment brand of the client.
          • Logical would compile a report to give the client an eagle’s eye view of all activity and provide assurance that the search process was comprehensive.
          • The position would be recruited exclusively to dedicate the resources and time required for success.

The results

  • Logical given a 2 week period of exclusivity
  • 4 candidates provided within the timeframe

  • Choice number one was offered the role and accepted it.

  • Choice number two was offered a newly created Chief Marketing Officer position

  • From the candidate perspective the aim was to provide a good experience and though 73 of the 75 would ultimately be disappointed, it was swift, fair and respectful.
