Our in-house approach to research ensures the widest possible coverage across the target markets. We always employ fresh research (coupled with our knowledge of the market) to obtain a current and accurate profile of the required candidates; we work quickly and methodically to ensure that we comprehensively map the target market for you. Concurrently, we will obtain source comment on target institutions/organizations, teams and individuals from ex-managers, ex-peers and clients. The data is then filtered to a long list of individuals for whom we obtain background information and biographical detail to ensure a relevant fit to the required profile.

Throughout the search process we will provide weekly reports. A calibration meeting will also arranged to ensure the initial Long list is progressing in the right direction. Thereafter, we will have further calibrations where necessary as we develop the Long list and interview potential candidates.

We operate a transparent search process and you will be kept fully informed of progress throughout, through formal weekly reports and "on demand" via e-mail and telephone. As a matter of course, we remain close to all the preferred candidates throughout the negotiation process until the successful candidate starts working.

Our typical search process is outlined below; however process can be customized to align with our client’s needs and requirements. In ensuring the quality of our consultants will work with clients to strike a balance between time and the quality of our execution.
