Projective has launched a brand new career website. With the online move the financial services project- and programme management specialist expects to better meet its growing demand for talent – the consultancy anticipates hiring 100 new (experienced) advisors in the coming years.
Over the past years Projective, a Belgian origin consulting firm, has booked strong growth across its three key markets: Belgium (headquarters), the Netherlands (established in 2009) and the UK (launched in 2011). The company last year for the first time broke through the barrier of 100 employees, and in sync with the milestone, CEO Stefan Dierckx (who co-founded Projective with Filip Bosschaert back in 2006) unveiled ambitious plans for the years ahead.
Reflecting on the key drivers behind the firm’s growth trajectory, Dierckx points at the firm’s tagline: “there’s no substitute for experience.” He says: “A high level of relevant project management experience has been maintained as the company has grown, and this has been the major factor in Projective’s success.” Through a dedicated focus on financial services industry – “we specialise only in financial service project management” – combined with a 10 year track record at a variety of banks, insurers and other institutions, Projective has become “an established authority in the industry,” says Dierckx.
In the coming years the CEO aims to double the firm in size, and in support of the recruitment demand for 100+ professionals Projective decided to develop a new career website. Following months of preparation and hard design and build work the new site formally launched yesterday as a separate micro-site within the wider Projective.biz domain. The site includes among others a description of the company goals and aims, the exact types of talent and experience sought, and a list of positions currently available.
In line with Projective’s business model centred around (industry) experience, the site too focuses mainly on the needs of experienced candidates. “In the complex environment of financial services, experience is key. We’ve opted for a business model based on recruiting the most experienced talent in the industry,” says Dierckx. “We expect this new career site, combined with our other marketing efforts, to enable us to continue to recruit the best talent available in Europe.”
Commenting on the firm’s culture and workplace edge, Dierckx says the firm can be characterised as an employer with “an attractive, ultra-flat company structure”, underpinned by a “strong like-minded culture.”
Looking ahead, Dierckx previously disclosed that the firm is planning for further international growth, with financial hubs such as Paris, Frankfurt or Zurich earmarked as the key targets. Against this backdrop, he says the new career site has been designed in such a manner that it allows the firm “to easily expand the country of preference for the candidates,” suggesting that the firm is well on its way with its expansion path into a fourth market.
