Project –Search for source a Payment Subject Matter Expert

Their requirement was for a Payments Subject Matter Expert who would interpret and implement their payments product strategy in the region. Fiserv is helping its clients push the boundaries of what’s possible in financial services, delivering deep expertise and innovative solutions to help financial institutions, businesses and consumers move and manage money faster and with greater ease. The role required a candidate with a niche skill and deep knowledge along with an extensive career history of working with retail banks.

Expands methodology
A strategy and project methodology were agreed to deliver Fiserv a shortlist of five candidates representing the top 10% of the market, with a hire to be made in six weeks. With limited candidates in the market due to the niche skill set, we needed to ensure that every single one was identified, approached and assessed. To secure an interest in targeted individuals it was vital that expand articulate Fiserv’s’ strategy and vision to convert these to engaged candidates. After extensive research and interviews, a long list of five candidates was created, all of whom came from direct competitors.
