A family-owned fragrance company develops custom fragrances that are found in everyday items such as cleaners, cosmetics, and more.
The Senior Scent Design Manager would drive creative fragrance development for consumer products. This was a very niche role, and the client was looking for someone with several years of experience in scent design and knowledge of fragrance families.
Because the role was so niche, the candidate pool was shallow, but the client understood and expected this. However, the client was located in an area where many of these candidates were not. Our client runs a budget-friendly business, but needed top-talent. The role needed to be positioned competitively to entice candidates to relocate.
This was the fourth placement #twiceasnice did for this client. We understood their business and who they wanted on their team. Immediately deploying our industry-best practices, we launched a nationwide search. #twiceasnice helped reassess the expected salary, providing evidence to raise it, to help bring in more qualified candidates.
Outreach (vs ads) generated real impact for this search: 75% of the candidates interviewed for this role were a result of cold outreach by #twiceasnice. Out of dozens of candidates, four matched the client’s expectations. On day 25 the winning candidate was submitted and given an offer on day 77.
