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.
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.
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.
