Local Guidance

As awareness around sustainability grows amongst the general public, so does the desire for businesses to take a stand and prioritise it. Naturally, this means that the need for specialists to assist businesses with this transition also increases

In this light, Cress Consulting has been expanding rapidly, and naturally, so has the company’s need for the right people to fill key roles.

However, in a market where the Sustainability Consulting discipline is still quite new, the main challenge Cress Consulting faced was finding candidates with sound consulting & client facing exposure, as well as a strong background in the science of Sustainability.

As Cress Consulting pride themselves on providing expert guidance to their clients, it was crucial for them to find talent that had both in-depth technical understanding and strong customer service experience, as well as be the right cultural fit.

To fulfil their niche requirements, our team understood that we needed to dive deep and go straight to the source rather than undertake a traditional search. 

This meant undertaking an in-depth direct market search and cross referencing skill sets, education & previous experience to find the right match for Cress Consulting. We also worked closely with the CEO (and hiring manager) on the candidate front during the entirety of the project, catching up weekly to provide updates & guidance. Communication was THE key factor to this search.

This approach enabled us to provide Cress Consulting with a diverse range of profiles to suit their needs, so as to make the recruitment process smooth and efficient.

Having built a strong partnership based on trust and a sound understanding of the role, we were able to successfully match Cress Consulting with the ideal consultant to deal with their increasing workload and growing number of accounts.

This meant working together to expand the horizons on which profiles would be best for their needs. This has enabled Cress to scale their business and focus on the development of their business and project(s) with a high level of confidence.

“By taking the time to understand our business’ needs, and finding the best fit, the Anávo team helped us deliver, sustain and stabilise our growth. We’re now ready for round two!” – Julia Seddon, Director at Cress Consulting
