Our client is an award winning, pioneering UK Bank offering Shariah-compliant savings, home finance, Buy-to-Let finance and more. The fastest growing bank of their kind in the UK, they continue to make strides in delivering against their ambitious objectives as a leading ethical challenger bank.
As the bank grew from innovative start-up to become a serious contender in the UK market, the leaders of the organisation knew that it was time to build a robust recruitment function to underpin further growth.
The senior stakeholders in the business chose to outsource to The Curve Group instead of building their own team as they recognised that this approach would ensure that the business would quickly benefit from the professional and scalable recruitment capabilities it needed to ensure that hiring would keep pace with the growth trajectory, whilst also controlling costs.
Since 2018, we have provided the bank with a high touch, people focussed recruitment process outsource solution. Whilst executing the day-to-day recruitment management for the bank, and continuously improving the recruitment process and experience for candidates and hiring managers, The Curve Group have also supported the business to improve visibility of their employer brand in order to improve talent attraction.
Service highlights so far include:
- Saving the bank £400,000 on recruitment spend
- Sourcing 350+ employees across multiple sites in the UK
- Reducing the time to hire by an average of 12 days
- Increasing Candidate’s satisfaction score
