Our Client

Walgrove is a recruitment services company led by Mike Clancy, with expertise in director-level appointments, e.g. Chairmen and non-executive directors. 

The company also provides an executive to non-executive career transition service with up to 20 clients annually.

Our Challenge

The evolving landscape of the competitive recruitment industry demands constant client attention. This struggle echoes across businesses in the competitive recruitment sector, where juggling administration while striving for growth poses a continual challenge.

Mike needed someone to come in and provide all of Walgrove’s administration needs while assisting with research and project work related to recruitment assignments. This was taking time away from him being able to focus on his clients and implement an effective recruitment business development strategy.


Our Results

Designated’s services have freed up more of Mike’s time to focus on client work, improved the quality of Mike’s service delivery for clients and transformed how the business operates internally, a result that highlights the necessity for streamlined ways of managing administrative tasks, which is where Designated PA excels.

Designated PA understands the predicament of a dynamic recruitment agency like Walgrove, where balancing administrative duties and fostering connections with new clients is a persistent challenge. We were able to adeptly alleviate admin burdens whilst refining operational strategies.
