Resource Management was appointed to fill two key Product Owner positions within Intermediaries in the Edinburgh office.
Unique challenge of leading a scrum squad within proposition design and delivery, playing a key role driving the transformation forward, being heavily involved in the key strategic decision making for setting the vision and goals of the proposition and helping Royal London become more Agile and adaptive.
Organisations in Edinburgh are relatively undeveloped within Agile methodologies and principles and the vast majority of individuals with this skillset preferring to choose contract and interim positions which meant identifying suitable candidates for the Product Owner positions extremely challenging.
Resource Management conducted a comprehensive and methodical selection process from an existing network of potential candidates, job boards, social media campaigns and a head hunting operation to draw up a meticulous shortlist.
A multi-channel search programme that combined branded advertising, research based market mapping and multiple direct approaches, internal database search, networking and referrals.
A progress plan was agreed and implemented and weekly updates provided so that Royal London were kept informed regularly.
"I am satisfied with the overall process. We had a good kick off meeting to discuss the requirements and the constraints we were likely to be working with around the population that would match the requirements. I was provided with a good selection of CV’s to review from people with a number of different backgrounds. I had good input from Graeme where he made suggestions following my initial assessments of candidates. The shortlist who went to phone meeting and face2face interview gave us a good range of candidates all who had something to contribute to RL. We believe that we have got 2 appointments that are strong and will bring value to RL now and in the future." Kenny Watson, Adviser Experience Tribe Lead – Royal London
