Executive Search Process – Overview
Executive Search is our primary area of service to our clients. We help you find the best people, build successful teams, and generate value for shareholders through excellence. We find exceptional leaders who are in tune with your markets and the culture of your organization.
We are able to combine our recruiting expertise and knowledge of resources for a diverse range of industries. We are mindful of our client’s organizational culture and provide the appropriate staffing solution to meet the needs of each company in a timely manner.
Close Working Relationships and Understanding
At Market Shapers, we develop close and effective working partnerships with clients to ensure we understand your exact requirements and the Return on Resource Investment for recruitment, talent management and outplacement you seek.
Instrumental in the process is Market Shapers working very closely with your Human Resource and Talent Acquisition team. We will understand your team’s performance matrix and will align with them; to ensure that Market Shapers is in synch with all your needs, including your unique corporate culture and values.
We seek the best candidates, both passive and active, wherever they are located. More than ever, organizations cross boundaries and need to connect with the world when searching for talented executives. In pursuit of the best candidates we use our network, our database and global offshore resources to seamlessly meet your needs.
Executive Candidate Profiling
With our systematic approach to candidate profiling we can identify the hard and soft skills, experience and attitudes that a “qualified” candidate should possess. Once we know who we are looking for we can begin to identify where we might find them.
None of this is possible without the input from you, the client, who will enjoy healthy interaction to engage fully with the process. Our partnership, together with shared ambition and commitment ensures a distinctive and effective solution.
Our Integrated Executive Search Process
In an age where CVs are easily found on the Internet, we add value and insight to executive search with the identification of truly viable candidates. We have devised a professional and disciplined executive search process that ensures our candidates do more than just match the technical requirements, often exceeding them. We work with urgency, respect and confidentiality on retained and contingency searches and are paid only if we satisfy the need of our client faces.
