This model is considered apt for the key leadership roles / niche roles, and involve a higher level of sourcing (mapping & head-hunting), screening and due diligence before a set of short-listed candidates is presented to the client interview panel for processing. In this model, our consultants develop a search strategy in consultation with our client, map industry / competition, use our referral network, and LinkedIn to reach out to “passive” candidates for the specific opportunity.
Our senior consultant(s) pre-qualify potential candidates through a detailed telephonic or face-to-face meeting, and assess their interest in the specific opportunity, as well as “degree of fit” with the desired position requirements / attributes. The consultant doing this assessment would also offer a justification report for a short-listed candidate, including a possible gap analysis and key decision / motivation factors for looking at a change.
Our teams have successfully completed such senior Executive Search assignments (Retained as well as Non-retained) for clients across sectors, across functions and across geographies.
Our typical Executive Search Process is represented in the pictorial.
