Our client’s Managing Director was engaged in a thorough review of their wider business and in doing so had identified the need to restructure the sales arm of their operationOur MD, Brian Fitzgerald, partnered closely with our client to get an in-depth understanding of their existing structure, with a view to helping establish where operational changes might have the greatest impact. Working together to conduct a robust analysis, our partnership identified some key benefits to the whole of our client’s business if they were to appoint a new VP of Business Development, with responsibility for the continued growth of their UK business – a high profile role to be created and successfully filled at a critical time for our clients business. 

The key to any strong partnership is trust and it was imperative that we demonstrated our ability to recruit on their behalf with professionalism and discretion. With over 30 years’ experience of recruiting at this level of seniority for some of the most well-known brands, both national and international, we were fortunate to have many examples to call upon. It was this demonstration of our abilities, based on the successful completion of similar briefs, that secured this trust from our client. 

After extensive searches we quickly identified and selected the most suitably qualified candidates and presented them to our client. We continued to work with our client in developing the role throughout the process, as new requirements were identifiedsuccessfully adapting our processes to overcome the challenging restrictions that the whole country is currently facing and re-doubled our efforts to ensure that we were able to facilitate an interview process that was fair, discreet and, most importantly, safe.  We are delighted to say that both the client’s trust in us and our efforts on their behalf resulted in the successful placement of a highly-deserving candidate who has now begun an exciting career with a genuinely dynamic, industry leading business. A process which took us a little over 4 weeks. 

Having successfully proven our ability to fill a high-profile vacancy, in one of the most challenging markets in recent times, our client tasked us further with managing an additional part of their restructure. With the onset of the new IR35 legislation they wanted to partner with a company that were in a position to provide support and external management of their growing sales team. As a business with both legal and compliance experts already in place, we were able to put together a bespoke solution to outsource this entire operation to our teamensuring that their staff are consistently offered the advice and guidance that is relevant and best suited to the needs of each individual, allowing our client to unburden themselves of the management and administration of this complex piece of legislation whilst enabling them to continue offering cutting edge solutions to their clients – it’s what we do and we are very good at it. 

We engage with our clients as equals, not just service providers. We listen to them and adapt our approach to suit, putting solutions in place that work. But, most importantly, we become a trusted partner and an extension of their business. 

We are taking affirmative action to ensure that clients have IR35 on their radar and to provide information and guidance to contractors and clients as part of our extensive service offering, here at Church International. 

If you are a client looking at the implication of IR35 on your organisation, and the impact on your contingent workforce, or if you are a contractor who wants to gain more insight into the implications of IR35 on your continued contract career, please register your interest in receiving our IR35 updates or taking part in our regular briefings, by calling Brian Fitzgerald on 01622 620 719 or emailing him at
