Executive Search

The objective of the Executive Search process is to approach and assess exemplary candidates based on a deep understanding of your needs. We minimise time to hire, reduce the effort and identify the right candidate for the position.

We understand the strategic nature of senior- or executive-level hires and the importance of an engaging selection process, that’s why we’ve created an extensive process to finding you the best hires. A retained Executive Search allows us the flexibility to understand both the hiring process and eventual aims of the role, producing candidates who display the core competencies and skills required while aligning with your company’s culture and values.

We pride ourselves on our professionalism and service excellence for both client and candidate. Our six-stage process includes progress reports and operates with integrity, discretion and confidentiality.

As evidence, 100% of European Recruitment’s work has become repeat business and 90% of candidates placed through retained Executive Search stay in roles for four years or more.

The six-step Executive Search process

1: Understanding your requirements

We explore the skills needed, cultural fit and impact of the hire to your business

2: Market analysis

A comprehensive exercise in understanding competitors and analysing our contacts highlight key candidates

3: Approaching and engaging candidates (long list)

Discreet and professional engagement with relevant individuals where we can evangelise your brand and build an understanding. At this stage all candidates identified are exclusive to you until the position is filled.

4: Candidate qualification (short list)

Here we qualify candidates quickly and effectively by delving into the candidate’s ambitions, motivations and goals; an important part of marrying the right candidates to the opportunity. This qualification information will be part of the agreed documentation and is key information for future reference.

5: Managing the interview process

We work in partnership with you throughout the interview process, providing briefings, managing diaries and conducting reviews. We can arrange off-site interview facilities and can partner for interviews, providing trained professionals if required.

6: Offer and acceptance

At this stage, all bases have been covered thoroughly by the Executive Search process, however, European Recruitment will still work assiduously with both parties, managing any external factors to secure the right package and terms for all concerned.
