Sellafield - Head of Commercial

Our Client

Sellafield is taking waste out of buildings that are as old as the site itself, dealing with the legacy of our nuclear past. They’re storing spent fuel so that nuclear power stations can continue to operate, and they’re repackaging the country's stockpile of nuclear materials.

Their 11,000 strong workforce is joined by more than 40,000 people from the best of the best in the nuclear supply chain, ranging from small Cumbrian businesses to global market leaders.

We’ve been part of Sellafield’s preferred supplier list for procurement and supply chain recruitment for many years.

Assignment Details

Following a promotion, the Supply Chain Director is looking to backfill the Head of Commercial vacancy.

AR Resourcing were appointed to recruit a Head of Commercial to deliver the commercial management for major projects ensuring optimum performance, together with leading a 50+ quantity surveying and commercial management team.

We were briefed to identify commercial leaders from infrastructure or EPC contractors, and relevant public sector organisations. It is important that candidates had experience of creating commercial strategies for large complex quantity surveying teams.

What We Did

We provided Sellafield our Retained Executive Search (Plan 1) recruitment service, we were retained as their sole recruiter to identify, qualify and present suitable candidates until we filled the assignment.

We contacted our active and passive candidate network across all local infrastructure / EPC contractors and public sector organisations.

As this was retained, we head hunted from a large selection of local infrastructure and EPC contractors to identify new candidates, and we prioritised this assignment over all other roles.

The challenge with this assignment was finding candidates of an appropriate calibre who were managing relevant projects and teams sizes. When interviewing candidates we qualified their experience of creating commercial strategies, together with ensuring they had the appropriate team management and board level stakeholder exposure.

The Outcome

Six CVs were shortlisted within two weeks, three candidates were selected for interview.

One candidate was immediately offered and appointed as they were keen to secure their services in a competitive market.
