Define Client Needs
(Weeks 0-1)

Further to an initial meeting we commence to develop a partnership with the client. We define position requirements based on organizational needs and business objectives as well as personal attributes and level of professional experience desired. In doing so we are able to tailor and align our structured process and establish our search strategy.

Deliverable: - Search proposal and approval to proceed

Establish Position Description
(Weeks 1-2)

We work with our client and stakeholders within the organization to develop a written position specification document, to be based upon detailed requirements against which each candidate will be measured. We work to develop an understanding of the position and its history, responsibilities and a sense of the personalities and styles of those whom the successful candidate will interact. Our client is given the opportunity to review and approve the final document.

Deliverable: - Written position description and candidate specifications
                       - Weekly reports commence

Candidate Identification
(Weeks 1-4)

We begin to develop a pool of potential candidates. This process is performed through the use of our comprehensive proprietary database, extensive network of industry contacts, comparative industry and competitive analysis, direct sourcing and internet based research.

Deliverable: - Clients receive tracking updates on an ongoing basis
                       - Target list reviewed with client

Candidate Assessment & Matching
(Weeks 1-5)

Given research findings we identify, interview and evaluate leading potential candidates.

Deliverable: - Benchmark client-candidate interview is organized
                       - Client meeting to evaluate leading potential candidates

Client Interviews
(Weeks 4-6)

Interviews with our clients are arranged with the leading 3 to 5 prospective candidates. Upon completion of these interviews our client in consultation with us will determine the finalist candidate.

Deliverable: - Prior to each interview clients receive detailed candidate appraisals

Reference Verification
(Weeks 5-7)

We review the reference of the finalist candidate. We conduct a complete reference verification process and report back to our client.

Deliverable: - A detailed Reference Report is provided to our client

Negotiate Offer of Employment
(Weeks 7-8)

Working closely with our client we negotiate the terms of the Offer of Employment with the finalist candidate in order to arrive at a "win-win" relationship between the parties. Our goal is to achieve agreement resulting in the execution of the Offer becoming merely a formality.

Deliverable: - An executed Offer of Employment and a satisfied client and successful candidate
                       - Successful candidate joins the client's organization

Post Hire Follow Up
(3 - 6 Months)

Once the successful candidate has assumed his or her new position, we maintain contact with our client and the final candidate in order to ensure that there is a successful integration.

Deliverable: - Contact with client and candidate each month for the first 3 months
