Lotus Belle, Cornwall, UK

Lotus Belle was founded in the UK in 2012 shortly before launching their flagship product the ‘Lotus Belle’ tent. This iconic and unique canvas tent design boasts all the portability and usability of a standard bell tent whilst affording the roomy luxuriousness of a yurt.

The company has continued to grow its customer base since in the UK and internationally. Since its inception, Lotus Belle has rapidly come to represent the very essence of boutique camping, defining the Glamping movement and transforming the landscape of festival VIP accommodation.

The Brief

Due to a recent shift in management and operational structure, the client needed support to recruit a new Project Support and Customer Experience Officer to ensure the smooth transition whilst maintaining productivity.

The main challenge faced by the client was not only the remote Cornish location of the office but finding the time to identify and appoint the right candidates. It was important to invest sufficient time and effort into the process, and essentially find people who shared the same passion for the outdoors, whilst fitting in with the evolving culture of an international family business.

The Solution

“The Konnect For Business team were able to apply our own tried and tested recruitment model to guarantee a successful outcome and result”. Dawie Cronje

Time was spent at the start of the process to research and create role profiles and pen portraits of the right people but also the right fit in terms of culture, attitudes and values needed. This approach enabled us to really understand the culture of the clients business.

Once identified, we wrote a bespoke, tailored job description then targeted the right people through our wide network of contacts. Following a successful recruitment campaign, we helped to screen and short list those with the desired experience, support the client by setting up interviews, joining the interview panel and finally contacting the successful and unsuccessful candidates, supporting the entire end to end process.

The Results

  • The creation of a successful job description fitting to company values and ethos

  • A targeted and effective and digital recruitment campaign with cut through in a challenging location and market

  • Creation of interview structure and assets to be retained by client for future use

  • Considerable reduction in management administration that provided a consistent and professional experience for all applicants

  • Agency and advertising fees avoided saving the client approx. £4,000
