Our ‘headhunting’ process

PMDcs-peopleThe most important part of the process is for us to understand exactly what you are looking for in terms of personnel and what the key characteristics of profile are. We will also need to understand why you think someone would want to leave his or her current job in order to join your organisation.

All of this would be gathered at an initial meeting at your offices or other communications where we will also provide you with all the information you need.

With the relevant information gathered we are then in a position to move to the next stage – research. We have a highly experienced and focused research team who have been sourcing the best talent over the last 10 years. We have the ability to collect, analyse, and organize research and intelligence data and with extensive knowledge of the market place we have the ability to understand organizational hierarchies, giving us the ability to map talents within a business.

Once the research is done the list of suitable candidates is checked and verified by the headhunting team who can then start making approaches to the candidates. The best talent is found through focused headhunting. Most of the candidates we approach are not looking for a new job and as such we have to be balanced in our approach. We have to represent the opportunity and gain their interest whilst getting them to commit to opening up about their experience. At this stage we will have a series of telephone conversations with the candidate where we are gathering all the relevant information about them and its relevance to the job but we would also be probing where their areas of discontent lie within their current role. It is absolutely essential at this point that we are gaining the candidate’s commitment as we do not want to arrive at the point of offer only for the candidate to turn it down.

Once this has been completed we will present the candidates to you and we would expect you will want to interview the candidates put forward. We will act as the interface between yourselves and the candidates and will manage expectations from both sides.

Our main goal is obviously to exceed your expectations but we aim to do this by leaving you to get on with the running of your business while we busy ourselves with delivering the ideal candidates for you to meet. The process can vary in time length depending on the type of position and the current market place buoyance.
