Scott Robinson (NPA #8405) of Robinson Executive in Melbourne, VIC, Australia, has made the firm’s first split placement with Catherine Moores (NPA #8479) of People Intelligence in North Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Scott placed Catherine’s candidate, an Outbound Sales Team Leader in the Food & Beverage Products and Services Industry in Australia.

Scott explains how the deal came about: "We were discussing a role with a client, though we felt that we didn't have the candidate network for the particular vacancy, so I reached out to the NPA partner network. Lindsey [Morgan] and Catherine were the first to reply, and also were able to demonstrate they had knowledge and experience in the area that the client was seeking. After taking the brief, then speaking with Catherine, I felt the best chance of success was to introduce Catherine to the client to run the process end to end, and keep us informed along the way. Catherine and her team did a great job, and the client followed up to say thanks for the introduction. Well done Catherine and team, and thanks NPA."

This is a great story about trusting your partners and building relationships! You never have to say 'no' to a client when you have great network partners you can rely on!
