Each assignment is managed by a specialist consultant who is supported by a multilingual research team. We treat each project individually and tailor the solution to meet the needs of your business.
Before any assignment we will take the time to thoroughly understand your business culture, strategic outlook, financial status and operational challenges. We can then advise you with confidence, on the types of skills, qualifications and experience you should consider, in prospective candidates.
We offer a robust talent mapping and succession planning (TMSP) service. Our expertise in the consumer sector across the world means that we can provide our clients with an in-depth analysis of how their organisational capabilities compare to others in the sector. We then use our extensive networks to help our clients plan for the future, by identifying the right talent internally and externally for their business.
We believe that a research led approach will guarantee exceptional results. We have dedicated research teams (covering 21 languages) responsible for the EMEA, Asia-Pacific and Americas regions. By drawing on our comprehensive global network of consumer industry leaders, relevant industry bodies and venture capital houses, we ensure that we are kept fully informed of market movements and trends.
Our clients recognise and rate our discrete service. Because of our credibility in the marketplace as a consumer specialist, we are able to search on your behalf without divulging the details of your business.
For some clients, understanding the various advertising options that are available is also important - to ensure that a role receives full coverage. Our multilingual teams have produced copy in various languages, depending on client requirements. We have a portfolio of marketing material that has supported global assignments, as well as local knowledge of the most cost effective advertising options across multiple territories.
We engage in a rigorous examination of candidates beyond the resume and go into great detail to ensure that we have a full understanding of their achievements. Only the highest calibre of candidate is put forward for client interview. Our commitment is to match expertise and personality with the culture of our clients’ business. We produce comprehensive reports for all shortlisted candidates, which clients receive prior to the interview stage.
We will arrange all aspects of the interview including logistical arrangements. We can suggest the most appropriate type of interview to conduct. This could include: structured, chronological, criteria or competency based. Post-interview we will also arrange and conduct candidate references.
During the search process our team of consultants and researchers collect valuable market information that is presented to you in a report at the end of the assignment. This report includes feedback and opinions on the role and industry sector trends, competitor analysis and salary benchmarks.
We will have a clear understanding of the candidate’s expectations, which are always aligned with the client’s offer. Our consultants can ensure that the best possible terms are negotiated for the client. It is essential that the candidate and client settle on a commercial agreement that suits both parties. If required, we can advise on contracts and employment law.
Testing and assessment is available to client’s that wish to gain further insight into the suitability of prospective candidates. We can provide a range of services that are objective, standardised, reliable and unbiased, including psychometric testing. These methods accurately predict which people have the potential to succeed in your business. The range of services includes: Ability testing, Personality profiling, Motivation assessment, Integrity testing, Design and delivery of assessment centres.
