The Global Board of a Big 4 firm sought to expand their International Tax capabilities internationally and we were retained to support this process.
It was obviously essential that any expansion plans were achievable and based a clear understanding of the talent present in the market. To provide this understanding, our experienced research team immersed themselves in this market for an agreed period of time, after which they produced a report delivering business intelligence on two levels.
The first element was a comprehensive market map of all Partners, Directors and Heads of International Tax working in all the major cities and business hubs globally. This detailed the size of the total population and provided a number of commercially advantageous insights into their competitors’ businesses, for example the size of their teams, key client accounts and revenues.
The second part of the report provided the detailed profiles of candidates who were rated most highly by the International Tax community. This provided our client with a clear understanding of who were the high flyers and leaders in this market, allowing them to refine their recruitment strategy and identify which of these they wished to target.
The report provided our client with a clear understanding of the market at both a competitor and individual level, allowing them to formulate their expansion plans accordingly and only to approach candidates of the highest calibre who could add definable value to their business.
The Integral difference: Our professional researchers provided our clients with hard-to-obtain intelligence that supported a targeted recruitment campaign, as well providing a commercial advantage.
