Talent Guaranteed Retained Search Process

Step 1: Initial Client Meeting


We will meet you and your hiring team to define and agree on the parameters of the search and process. This meeting enables us to gain insights into your organisation and organisational culture. With this information, we can identify talent with more than just the right skills and experience, but also the right cultural fit.

Step 2: Our Executive Search Strategy


We will draw up a plan to identify talent systematically and professionally. This is a fully transparent process where you will receive weekly updates on our search progress. We will help you take the pulse of the IT recruitment market so you can leverage on the market insights to make current, informed decisions. By the end of this step, we will have a longlist of qualified candidates.

Step 3: Screening and Shortlisting Candidates


We will conduct the initial interviews and assess the candidates against preset criteria. You will receive detailed records of how the interviews went. This step yields a shortlist of 3-5 candidates from which the best talent could be chosen.

Step 4: Interview and post-interview


In this step, we will coordinate and facilitate the interview process, as well as offer management. After a candidate has been chosen and he/she has accepted the offer, we will continue to support the onboarding process, ensuring that it is smooth and hassle-free for your team and the candidate.
