Case Study: ING

How flexible can a quick fix be?

ING needed support for its legal team over a 3 month period.

The client had a full-time vacancy in Acquisition Finance, a highly technical post that cannot be filled easily. In addition, one of the team was taking paternity leave for 6 weeks over the school summer holiday. As a result the team as stretched in the lending services and structured finance business.

“What we heard was that the client needed an on-call, dedicated lawyer – an exclusive extension to the team.”

Aimee Dyer, Resourcing Coordinator, Obelisk Support 

The advantage of a dedicated, flexible resourcing solution is that the client can budget for a maximum cost and be confident that if the amount of work fluctuates, the price would be adequately adjusted.

The essence of Obelisk’s quality proposition is the one candidate recommendation, selected for a perfect fit;

  • The selected candidate was an alumna of the bank who had taken 10 years out.
  • The obelisk lawyer could fit in very quickly and did not require extensive training.
  • The contract ran over 3 months, carried out remotely and on the client’s IT system.

“The work of the Obelisk lawyer work has been speedy, thorough and very helpful. We liked the fact that we paid for what we used only.
