We devote our practice to providing world-class retained executive search services to its clients. We focus on creating long-term value for our clients and their owners. We pride ourselves in our ability to identify the rare candidates to fit our client’s needs. All of our services are conducted with adherence to the highest ethical and professional standards.
What We Do
We work on behalf of client companies to search for and recruit highly qualified executives. All fees related to the search are client paid. Every search is based on a solid working relationship with our client. This includes developing a thorough understanding of the position specification, organizational structure and company culture, as well as the client’s expectations of the new person in the position. We then search for the best candidates utilizing our extensive network of industry contacts and referral sources and our vast central database of candidates.
Our job at this point is twofold:
1. To determine whether a person’s qualifications, interests and objectives are aligned with the opportunity; and
2. To brief the prospective candidate on the position requirements.
Only if we determine that there is candidate interest and that they possess the appropriate qualifications and attributes will we discuss the candidate’s credentials with the client. Once a mutual interest is established between the client and a candidate, we become facilitators of the process.
Our search consultant will brief you thoroughly about the job, client company and the interview process. The consultant will assist in negotiating all aspects of any employment offer and will help to identify and resolve and issues that may arise. Counsel on cost of living and relocation issues can also be provided.
We are not an employment agency, outplacement firm or advisor on career strategies. We counsel only with regard to the opportunities associated with our active search assignments.
Most of the people we approach are not actively in the job market. Frequently, they are qualified executives in satisfactory situations interested only in having exceptional career opportunities brought to their attention for serious consideration. If you are going to leverage your career to its maximum potential, you will probably make several appropriate and timely job changes over the course of your working life. In order to do that most effectively, you must have a career strategy and give careful thought to how to achieve your goals. You and your family should define your values with respect to your work and desired quality of life. When we are aware of your qualifications, goals and values, we can approach you with those opportunities that are consistent with them.
In this era of corporate restructuring and downsizing, anyone can lose a good job with little notice. Therefore, it is a good idea to establish an early relationship with us. If you should unexpectedly find yourself in the job market, we will be ahead of the game by already knowing the kinds of opportunities that will be attractive to you
You may be assured that we will be sensitive to your personal needs for confidentiality as we address your questions and concerns. Our ongoing relationships with our clients often give us continued contact with candidates we place; therefore, we want only to make good matches. Encouraging an inappropriate career move would be contrary to our philosophy and counter-productive to maintaining good client relationships. We will ask for your time only when a genuine opportunity exists. Submit your resume to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
