The context

A member of the Operating Board had recently announced their intention to move on, so based on their evidenced expertise in the sector, Alliance Medical engaged the support of Rinnova’s sector specific advisors to assess the impact this significant organisational change would have on the business and support the subsequent recruitment process.


The solution

Managing Director Discussion & Board Enquiry

  • The Managing Director and two sector specific Rinnova advisors met to discuss the wider impact of the organisational change.
  • Rinnova undertook an Operating Board enquiry, led by an advisor and recruitment professional, to define the role and assess culture.

Search & Interviewing

  • Rinnova’s advisors proactively assisted the recruitment team with candidate qualification and shortlisting, as well as availability for interviews and offer stage.
  • Rinnova advisors were on hand to assist with the on-boarding and mentoring of the successful candidate.


The impact

  • Independent sector expertise and board-level discussions ensured the right skills and experience for long-term success were sought after.
  • Candidates were presented that a traditional search would not have found.
  • Less than 4 weeks to shortlist.

“Our search for a Chief Operating Officer to lead AML through the next phase of its journey was an important hire and one we couldn’t afford to get wrong. Rinnova’s advisor-led model was different – and impactful – from the start. Rather than launching directly into a traditional executive search process, their selected advisors provided independent, objective, experience-based analysis of our wider strategy.

During the executive search process, they were able to utilise the experience and networks of their advisors. They presented us with candidates that, I would argue, could only have been engaged with because of their advisor relationship. For me, Rinnova offer a unique service in delivering combined recruitment and consultancy initiatives. I have seen first-hand the power of their advisor-led model and would not hesitate in using them again.”
