EXECUTIVE SEARCH STRATEGY

STEPS FOR EXECUTIVE SEARCH

STEP 1: Client Meeting

  • Position profile developed and source environment defined.
  • We learn the personality of the client.
  • Meet hiring manager and all others that are actively involved in the hiring process.
  • Once terms and conditions are agreed upon, the search formally commences.

STEP 2: Candidate Identification

  • Network/Sourcing, database search with custom research.
  • Research strategy and source environment defined, telephone “pitch” defined, recruit email developed, database search for similar candidates.
  • We identify between 50 to 75 candidates for each search.

STEP 3: Telephone Interviews

  • The client’s value proposition as an employer is communicated in a compelling manner that piques the candidate’s interest by describing the company a year on from now with him/her as an integral part. (Selling the candidate on the hiring company is crucial in securing top talent in a competitive environment.)
  • Build trust with the candidate from the initial contact. It is imperative to be objective in identifying concerns that a candidate may have with the position relative to his/her background and/or career objective. (Establishing trust pays huge dividends during remuneration negotiations.)
  • We endeavor to telephone interview 90% of candidates that are initially identified for the search.

STEP 4: Personal Interview

  • Candidate is interviewed with insightful, in-depth questions.
  • Understanding of candidate’s qualities.
  • We look to interview between 5 and 8 candidates for each search.
