The client, a £10 million+ turnover charity, was seeking an AMIF Project Accountant and Business Partner, having been interviewing candidates with ‘EU Grants’ experience for two weeks with two other agencies. By marketing a candidate with “institutional grants” experience, based in North Ireland, the client was flexible in allowing the candidate to work from North Ireland and increased the salary from £40K to £45K. Angela requested that the client move quickly because the identified candidates had three other interviews, and getting a candidate with institutional grants experience who is available immediately is like gold dust within the NGO sector. The client met this candidate for a first stage interview and assessment, followed by a second stage interview, and made an offer.
