Executive Search Process:
Meeting with the Client to Fully Understand the Position and the Organization
During this meeting, we elaborate on the main priorities of the position and establish the selection criteria that will help in identifying the candidates and in evaluating their competencies. This preliminary discussion enables us to better understand the position beyond the written role description, and to fully appreciate the values of the organization.
Identification of candidates
We first proceed with the identification of targeted individuals based on the key selection criteria in order to retain the most qualified potential candidates who we then contact.
After an analysis of the CVs received and an assessment of the relevance of the selected applications, we carry out an interview with the candidates who best match the requirements.
Next, we review the background of each “pre-selected” candidate with the client.
The selected candidates are then interviewed by the client.
Once the interviews with the final candidates have been completed, and a finalist has been identified, we proceed with references.
Psychometric / Psychological Evaluation
A psychological evaluation can be added to the recruitment process in order to better understand the finalist’s background.
