Talent Guaranteed Retained Search Process

Step 1: Initial Position Meeting


We meet you and your hiring team to define and agree the parameters of the search and process.

This enables us to gain valuable insights into your organisation and organisational culture, most importantly where this new hire will fit into the bigger picture and what impact they will have.

With this detailed brief we can identify, engage and attract talent that not only has the right technical skills and experience, but also perfectly match your business culture and values.


Step 2: Our Executive Search Strategy


We’ll define a bespoke plan to identify, engage and attract talent specifically relevant to your Employer Value Proposition. This is a collaborative process through which you’ll receive regular updates on our search progress.

We’ll help you take the pulse of the relevant technology community so you can leverage our market insights around availability, salary and appetite to make current, informed decisions.


On completion of this search we’ll provide a longlist of fully-qualified, engaged candidates.


Step 3: Screening and Shortlisting Candidates


We’ll conduct initial interviews to assess the candidates against your pre-determined criteria.


We’ll provide a full post-interview report, with detailed comments on each candidate’s performance.


This yields a shortlist of 2-4 highly engaged candidates to progress to subsequent interview stages.


Step 4: Interview and post-interview


We can coordinate and facilitate the entire process from interview arrangement, through feedback, referencing, offer presentation and acceptance.


Once the selected candidate has accepted your offer, we’ll continue to support the onboarding process, ensuring it’s as engaging as possible for your new employee and hassle-free as possible for your business.
