Case Studies


As part of their post-Series C expansion across North America, Australia and Europe, a global Fintech company needed a dedicated talent partner to introduce them to the leaders that will deliver on their ambitious growth strategy as well as support their day-to-day recruitment activity globally.


They chose Acolyte’s Premium Search service to ensure they would be introduced to the very strongest leadership talent for their organisation. For other levels of staff, they chose Acolyte’s innovative Digital Headhunting tool.


They were able to make key C-Suite placements including their Chief Financial Officer, Chief Revenue Officer, General Counsel and Head of M&A at a fraction of the cost of traditional executive search alternatives.


Concerns were raised about the availability of appropriately experienced compliance talent and the impact this could have on achieving the firm’s growth strategies.

The  HR team recognised this challenge and sought to pro-actively address concerns through developing appropriate resourcing strategies and establishing a pipeline of financial services compliance talent, ready to deliver immediate value to the incoming Chief Risk Officer.


We employed our talent intelligence engine to create a strategic talent map that would identify all Risk & Compliance individuals with financial services experience in the South West of the UK. 


Acolyte identified more than 570 appropriately skilled and experienced compliance professionals. These results far exceeded expectations and provided assurance that the depth of compliance talent was sufficient to meet strategic objectives.


A world-leading professional services firm had created their cyber security offering to help clients improve cyber resilience and protect their critical data. However, in a department of over 60 people, the cyber security team was almost exclusively white, male and primarily from a military service background.

It was recognised that the profile of the current team is unlikely to be representative of the wider talent market.


Through a combination of D&I Talent Diagnostics & Strategic Talent Intelligence, they were armed with the empirical data they needed to inform their broader D&I strategy. These key insights enabled them to effect behavioural change and broaden their talent attraction and retention strategies in order to maximise diversity amongst their cyber security team.


Since the receipt of the D&I intelligence from Acolyte, the client has transformed their approach to diversity hiring. For example, in the three months following receipt of the D&I Intelligence, of the 22 staff that have joined the team, 12 have been female).

global talent insight

A global group of energy and petrochemical companies wanted to introduce a centralised creative communications solution to deliver cost-effective design and production services for their internal stakeholders globally.

The challenge was that the client did not know where best to locate this team, nor how to resource it effectively, nor how much staff should cost when the new location had been decided upon.


Our Global Talent Mapping was engaged to survey the world talent market for design professionals. Potential geographies from Eastern Europe to the Philippines were explored, with potential locations evaluated objectively against key criteria including talent availability, labour costs, future talent supply and local infrastructure.

Our Digital Headhunting solution was then engaged to identify, attract, assess and recruit for all roles 


Acolyte’s Global Talent Mapping Intelligence service meant that they immediately gained transparency on the availability, cost and depth of design talent across the various locations under consideration for the new hub.

The hub was fully resourced, operational and delivering quality content for Shell within just 8 weeks of location selection.
