In 2017, Tricon Residential approached Robert Walters in search of a Private Funds Controller, marking the beginning of a successful partnership that has seen over 20 of our roles filled. The most recent project involved securing a Senior Legal Counsel professional for a 12-month maternity contract.
It was essential that whoever filled this position had specialized experience across legal and real estate markets, which made it a highly niche requirement. The additional constraint of a limited-term maternity contract further narrowed the pool of potential candidates.
I would describe Robert Walters as a true recruitment partner. Megan and the wider team invested time getting to know our business aims, as well as technical aspects of the role. The relationship between both organisations allowed us to be very open about our interview processes and requirements, ensuring only applicable candidates were shortlisted to us.
Despite the challenges posed by the scarcity of contract Senior Counsel candidates with real estate experience who were looking for contract work, we were shortlisted an individual who not only possessed the necessary qualifications but also perfectly aligned with our expectations. As a result, the candidate was promptly placed within the organization, leading to another successful collaborative effort.
The Robert Walters team did a great job helping us find a strong fit for a specialized position which was difficult to fill for several reasons. Their robust knowledge of the market, professionalism, and understanding of our company's needs are a genuine value-add, and working with them makes our lives easier.
I look forward to working with them again in the future.
Robert Walters continues to strengthen its position as a trusted recruitment partner for Tricon Residential. The success of this project further solidifies the partnership and sets the stage for future collaborations that promise mutual success and continued growth.
