Case Study: Vodafone

Can quality support be taken a step further?

Vodafone required maternity cover for a minimum of 3 months. The role reported to the Finance Director of a joint venture between the client and a retailer. The Obelisk lawyer was required to provide and procure all necessary legal support to the business.

In a case like this, when the client doesn’t have the internal resource to support the third party, they need a solution ensuring their quality, cultural and industry standards are maintained.

“As one of their trusted partners, they knew we could operate as an extension of their team in a seamless fashion”

Mandy Meredith, Operations Manager, Obelisk Support

Obelisk’s one candidate quality assurance means that the vacancy was filled – with no delays – by the perfect match. A candidate with extensive in-house experience was up and running in the role seamlessly, after a brief handover.

The seniority of the job required advising the senior leadership team, among some responsibilities. The work is being executed with experience, adaptability and a great deal of common sense.

“Liaising with legal teams at both parent companies as and when required, Obelisk had a solution that solved that seamlessly.”
