This is a great article by our friend and associate Jon Baxter about what should be considered before starting the process of recruiting an IT BRM/IT BP.
We absolutely agree with this article. Any interview process (especially with the hiring manager) should be two sided as only then will both parities get a better understanding of how they operate in the working environment.
James contacted me for a senior IT role position he was recruiting for. What is great with James is that he understands very well the value that IT Business Relationship Manager and Business Partner can bring to an organisation. He can assess the right mix of relationship, programme management, business acumen, strategic thinking and technical knowledge to ensure the candidate is a good fit in terms of competencies, experience, and culture.
Throughout the process, his communication was clear, prompt, timely, thoughtful and caring. It was a pleasure to deal with him and one to remember. I will use his services again with confidence. I have already recommended him to my network.
