This methodology is utilised when our client is seeking to hire the best possible person they can for a specific role.
By undertaking a search they are ensuring that the brightest and best talent in any given market has been approached credibly and professionally by a firm which understands their business’ strategic goals. All of our clients, across all industry sectors, are at the pinnacle of their respective industry. We would not undertake a search assignment if the role was such that it did not lend itself easily to a search process. As a result, we will say “no” when we feel working on a role would compromise our position and that of our client in the market.
At all times our client can be made aware of what stage has been reached in the Search process, and at all times our research list and conversations with those approached individuals are made available for discussion.
At the outset we will agree to a timeframe that is suitable given the size of the assignment, and we will stick to that timeframe as far as possible. Should the assignment raise unforseen issues that may cause the timing to go astray, we again will meet with the client to discuss those factors and agree to work towards a new goal.
We will continue to work towards a satisfactory result for our client at all times, irrespective of the time spent – as such our fees are heavily weighted towards completion of the assignment rather than the shortlist.
