The appropriate candidate in specialized hires will more often than not already be a part of a successful working environment, and a strong emphasis is therefore placed on ‘headhunting’ and ‘mapping out the market’, whilst ensuring that confidentiality and discretion is not compromised. We appreciate that upon approaching a candidate, our contact and behavior is a direct reflection of our client. Partnering with our client to intimately understand its requirements is therefore crucial in representing it in the most accurate and favourable manner. This impresses candidates with a current and detailed knowledge of the client and in turn enhances our client’s ‘employer brand’.
Retained search requires a more thorough search, often at a regional/international level. In depth bio sketches are provided on each shortlisted candidate, confirming the skills and experience the client has asked for. A detailed report of the candidates approached and the ‘market map’ for the required profile as well as compensation data on each candidate can also be provided in order to educate the client on what the market currently pays.
