Success Story

Increase Diverse Hires: Growth Defence Consultancy Project

Our advanced approach to candidate sourcing, assessment and selection supported Mace’s strategic goal to increase diverse hires for their defence consultancy project.

We supported global built-infrastructure experts – spanning three core divisions: Property & Corporate Real Estate, Infrastructure and International Markets, along with one other agency due to their rapid growth as a result of a major project win.

ARM has talent recruitment divisions across multiple sectors including transportation & infrastructure and, defence & aerospace – which allowed us to not only supply procurement and commercial professionals but with the the insight of a greater understanding of the wider market of which our client operates. This was especially powerful as this specific project was to supply professional service talent to a defence consultancy project. Our clients as market leaders knew that finding the right talent is just one aspect with a view to not only supply talent but to increase the diverse hires at the same time.

The goal to increase diverse hires

ARM’s professional services recruitment specialists utilise sourcing tools and techniques to support Mace’s goal to increase diverse hires. Inclusivity underpins our entire recruitment practice – implementing unbiased blind CVs, and using the latest technology to enhance our recruitment practices such as Textio and Horsefly Analytics allows us to find the best talent for our clients from the widest possible pool.

As a result of ARM’s talent sourcing efforts, we were rated the top-ranked agency within our clients suppliers with respect to diverse hires.

Skillset fulfilment and project coverage

Starting in 2020 ARM supported the Global Experts, Mace, who shape the built environment across their South West, South East and London regions.

With our well-established network and in-depth knowledge of our client’s sector, during the span of this project, we sourced and supplied 30 permanent hires (and growing!) – across a variety of skills from Commercial Managers through to Associate Directors.
