Executive Search

1. Problem definition and specification An intensive briefing interview with our client is the basis for familiarising ourselves with the company’s environment, the organisational structure, the objectives, the agenda and the management team to the extent needed to fill the position. On the basis of this interview, a company and position profile, the specification, is developed, which summarises our understanding of the situation and task. 2. Systematic market and data research The actual search process is characterised by a systematic approach, where, on the basis of the specification, we analyse the industry segments and target companies where the personalities can be found that we believe could be suitable for the vacant position. 3. Approaching candidates and personal interviews Suitable candidates for the position are identified, approached individually and confidencially in order to elicit their willingness to move to a new job and to assess the required qualifications. It is of great importance to ensure that the reputation and market position of our client is represented appropriately by our conduct. 4. Confidential report
and presentation
Our goal is to propose three to four candidates for interview to our client from the group of applicants. Before the interview, we compile a comprehensive, confidential report on each candidate and accompany the presentation of the selected candidates.
5. Checking references With reference checking and aptitude diagnostic tests, we offer useful, additional elements in evaluating the short-listed candidates. 6. Support in contract negotiations Towards the end of the interviews and after the approval and selction of a candidate to whom a contract offer is to be made, we are happy to act as an intermediary for both parties by prior arrangement. 7. Supporting integration We stay in contact with the new employee and our client for up to a year after the contract is concluded or signed in order to identify and help solve any problems that may arise during the trial period. Our client will receive relevant feedback from us on how the candidate’s own view of how he or she is settling in in his or her new environment and the extent to which the position is meeting his or her expectations.
