the Challenge

At the beginning of 2021, The Crown Estate embarked on a large-scale digital transformation, starting with Data & Analytics.

The Crown Estate's internal TA team was predominantly focused on non-tech hires and supported heavily by multiple agencies. The team was already at capacity and needed a Data team hired before the end of 2021.

 The Crown Estate

theSolution

Cititec entered into an initial discovery phase with the Chief Data Officer to discuss the first hiring sprint of 7 hires. Subsequently, a London-based Talent Lead and TA joined the Crown Estate to support all Data & Analytics hires. Through Cititec's community and market knowledge and our AI-driven search technologies, we could identify and reach the relevant passive talent quickly.

 

theResult

A thorough understanding of The Crown Estates Mission and an exceptionally smooth interview process allowed Cititec to get strong candidate buy-in & engagement from the offset.

As a result of this strong partnership, the Data & Analytics team was hired within eight weeks, allowing projects to kick-off ahead of schedule.

  • 35% cost reduction (based on previous agency costings) 

  • 90% applicant acceptance rate 

  • 39% reduction in time to hire.

  • Cititec continue to be engaged
