Our selection process is based on a structured and systematic approach, which is proactive, detailed and target oriented.
The process includes the following steps:
To better facilitate the process, we will meet with key stakeholders important to the search to understand the organization’s history, culture and operating structure.
The position specification document will be prepared based on our discussions. This serves as critical piece of information, which is shared with serious candidates for the position. It describes the key success factors and priorities of the position, as well as candidate specifications including competencies, experience, background and personal traits.
The position specification will be reviewed with the client and serve as a guide in determining whom we will contact during the course of the search.
The final position description will be presented for formal approval.
Upon approval of the Position Specification by the client, we will begin to search for candidates by following the below activities:
Based on our discussions, we will draw up an initial list of shortlisted candidates. This will be done after a detailed evaluation of the candidates in terms of their skill sets, experience and their interest in the mandate. In addition to personal interviews, we may use independent 3rd party Psychometric assessment tools at an extra fee.
For the most promising of these candidates, we will prepare a detailed résumé and evaluation summary, to facilitate the interview process.
We will arrange interviews between the short listed candidates with your representatives. On receiving feedback, from the candidates and yourself on the meetings, we will work with you to draw up the final shortlist.
We will conduct detailed references on the final candidate(s) you wish to hire, before the offer is formally extended, should you so require.
You have the option of requesting a background check on candidates at an extra fee. This would be organized through an independent 3rd party agency.
