Business challenge


Elekta, a global cancer care and research company wanted to enhance their employee experience by revamping their People Teams. This restructure called for 2 new teams and created multiple roles in different locations across EMEA. They struggled to find quality candidates through their own direct search.


Our solution – Permanent Search


Our UK recruitment experts collaborated with the People Operations Director to understand the vision, needs and long-term strategy for the new People Teams. Leveraging our strong personal networks thanks to years of relationship building, we were quickly able to connect with candidates who not only had the hard skills required for each role, but also had the right soft skills and personality for a long lasting, successful career match.




  • We filled all open roles, helping our client to achieve a successful restructure, enhance the employee experience and focus on long-term strategy
  • As true match makers, we introduced high quality, passive candidates who wouldn't have normally applied to a direct job posting


Success factors


  • One point of contact meant efficient and cost-effective hiring across multiple locations
  • Fast time to hire, one candidate was interviewed and hired within the same week



“I am delighted to share my feedback based upon the support I have received from Lou, Lou will always understand the in-depth detail of the candidate I am looking for.


She will always go above and beyond to support me and has people at the interest of her heart. I have received many candidates working with Lou over the years and they have been absolutely fantastic.


What I like most is that she will not just fill a vacancy for the sake of a number, she makes it personal, she checks in with them and myself after settling them in, it really is a fantastic service provided. I am absolutely thrilled to have the support from Lou she is a real credit to LHH.”
