Restructuring a HR team at a Luxurious Dining and Entertainment Services Company

The challenge:

After we had successfully helped this local luxurious dining and entertainment services company search for a Regional HR Director role, they wanted to restructure their HR team further. They engaged Argyll Scott for this project, as they had difficulties with brand perception in the market and some of the roles were highly confidential or replacements. We were asked to find a Head of HR, a Talent Acquisition Manager, and a Payroll and Benefits Manager.

Our solution:

We agreed the priority order of the roles with the HR Director, before developing their brand and employer proposition, selling the opportunity as a high-end lifestyle F&B brand, rather than the nightlife entertainment they were commonly known for. We then used our extensive HR candidate database and referrals, among other marketing tools, to find the best talent on the market, managing the whole recruitment process from start to finish.

The outcome:

  • We placed the perfect TA candidate within just two weeks and the Payroll and Head of HR role within a month

  • The brand evolved to become a more positive, attractive proposition to incoming and prospective candidates

  • We stabilised the HR team and most are still with the company one-year later

  • The HR Director was so happy with the outcome that they continue to work with us on other roles throughout the business, not just HR
