Internal & Change Communications Lead, £400/day, global retailer

The problem

As a major global brand going through significant change, our client was struggling with communications resource for a key transformation programme; their BAU team was stretched and, although there were other interims in the business, none had quite the right mix or experience, gravitas and drive. A very specific sort of person was needed…

What we did

Over the last 10 years we’ve developed a name for ourselves within the change & transformation space, helping mid-to-large corporates manage big people change programmes. Knowing our client well - and knowing what they were going through - we had a pretty clear idea of the sort of person they would need. Sometimes it’s a small world, and on this occasion we knew it was a case of working our database and network to identify people with the right background who were available… then get on the phone to sound them out. Professional interims love a challenge, and soon we’d picked out three who seemed perfect and who were keen to get involved…


Our client took our steer and met all three; fair to say they were impressed, offering one on the spot and feeding back positively on the other two meetings. Within 10 days their change programme had a Comms Lead in situ… not just a safe pair of hands, but someone who understood their culture too.OUR CLIENT SAID: “A challenging requirement to fill, and we needed some very specific experience. Artis managed to secure someone with exactly the right background… and they’ve hit the ground running! A great result.” Regional Resourcing Lead, FMCG THE CANDIDATE SAID: “Mark managed to find a fantastic new role for me, locally, with a major brand; great for the CV, a really meaty role… plus I now don’t have to sit on the train to London every day!” Internal & Change Communications Consultant
