Intuition is always founded on a process. A process that inevitably leads to euprior results.
Defining a search profile
The first stage of the assignment is critical for the process. During the initial discussions, we establish a precise direction for the new Executive Search project. Based on the definition of duties prepared together with the client and the available supplementary material, we compile a written description of the company, organisation and tasks. In this search profile, we also highlight the requirements set for the ideal candidate’s competence, experience and work-life persona. Finally, we formulate a search strategy for the assignment.
Implementing an Executive Search
We carry out a systematic Executive Search process that is based on the requirements set by the position in question and the search profile. Our goal is to identify the persons who meet the formal requirements for the task and who are potential candidates due to their background and experience.
Throughout the project, we keep our client informed about our progress and report to them on the various stages of the project.
We contact the individuals we have identified as potential candidates and chart their interest in the job. After thorough interviews, we assess their skills in relation to the defined position description and the profile of the ideal candidate.
From the candidates we have interviewed, we usually select 3-5 of the most suitable ones to present to the client. Based on the interviews, we compile written reports on these candidates, containing a description of the person: their personal details, education, work history, professional experience and a summary of their suitability for the position.
Introducing the candidates, reference check and follow-up
We introduce the selected candidates to our client’s representatives while being present ourselves throughout the session.
Next, we verify the references of the candidates to delve deeper into their competence, potential and areas of development. We provide the potential new employer with a clear summary of the candidate’s way of working and a recommendation of which details they should pay special attention to.
After this, we verify the references of the candidates selected for further discussions and perform further research into their competence, potential and areas of development. We keep the customer advised on all results of this research.
When needed, we assist the client with the final discussions, for example in matters concerning the contract of employment.
We follow up on the selected individual’s performance with both the person themself and the client’s representative.
