    1. You have an important initiative to deliver and can’t afford to make a bad hire.2. You are wasting time sifting through multiple CVs that miss your brief.3. You are finding candidates that meet the job specification but miss the cultural fit.4. You need to scale up and onboard high quality project resources in tight timeframes. 5. You need a recruitment partner that’s committed to understanding your business.6. You need access to a network of candidates with a track record of delivering change in similar projects and environments.


    The Business Change & Transformation practice at Stott and May is firmly established as one of the most respected in the industry, fulfilling a variety of contract and permanent roles, both on time and in budget. Our goal is to enable businesses to act with greater agility and achieve better outcomes from transformational projects through the supply of experienced project leaders capable of seizing opportunities and controlling risk.

    A staggering percentage of transformation initiatives fail to meet their initial objectives primarily as a result of focusing in on technology change at the expense of cultural change. People ultimately sit at the heart of delivering successful outcomes and as such it’s essential to work with a recruitment partner that will think further than the job specification and truly consider the cultural dynamics at play in your organisation.



    To give you a sense of the types of assignments we engage in here are just a few of the roles we have recently filled.

    “In 95% of competitive situations with other agencies our candidate gets the offer.”


    At Stott and May we help to provide hiring managers with options when it comes to recruiting forward thinking, strategic project leaders.

    “Finding the right hire in the area of business change and transformation relies heavily on not only understanding the technical credentials required from a candidate but their softer skills. Changing direction is a massive and costly challenge for any business. It’s key to bring in business change professionals that can quickly identify with and align to the unique culture of the organisation to win stakeholder support and see initiatives through to tangible outcomes. This cultural issue makes recruitment in this space highly challenging as it’s not simply a case of matching a CV with a job specification. So often hiring managers will see a candidate that ‘looks suitable on paper’ only to spend the time and effort on interviewing them to discover they are not a good cultural fit for the business. That’s often where we come in with the experience and knowledge to understand the dynamics of a client and then filter through our existing ‘known’ network of candidates and referrals to find the perfect fit.”
