OUR PROCESS

HEADHUNTING METHODOLOGY

Our tried and tested Executive Search method is to first identify the professional and behavioural competencies of the ideal candidate essential for success, based on your requirements and company culture. We then utilise various attraction methods simultaneously to ensure that we have thrown the net far and wide to attract the best possible talent, not just those on the job market, but in the entire market.

How we partner with you

INITIAL CLIENT BRIEFING

A Search consultant specialising in your industry will meet with you to outline search requirements, timelines, future organisational strategy and mission, and get an understanding of your corporate culture 

MARKET ANALYSIS & CANDIDATE PROFILE

Before we start headhunting we will first provide you with a deep analysis of the market and create a compelling job profile for your review and approval 

TALENT MAPPING

The inhouse Executive Search team researches and maps out comparable companies and systematically targets key talent from these firms, as well as other potential professionals across the globe 

ASSESSMENT

All candidates are interviewed by one or more senior team members to explore their background, competencies and interest in the role. In addition, for shortlisted candidates we provide a complimentary psychometric assessment that creates a clear, holistic image of the candidate that digs deep into their leadership DNA. Learn more about our search assessment tools

OFFER & NEGOTIATION

The Executive Search team is experienced in the mediation of job offers and assist clients and candidates to reach a conclusion that works for all parties. A full client report will be shared with you at the end of the assignment

ONBOARDING

It doesn't stop at headhunting. We work in collaboration with you to assist your new executive in crafting a plan to integrate into the business successfully. Also through the first 90 days, our consultants gather and distil candid feedback on the first impressions the executive is creating during that time
