Our Executive Search Methodology

Our 7-STEPS Executive Search Methodology is used in all our searches, from understanding the clients’ needs to delivering top talent candidates. We keep the highest level of confidentiality, for our clients and for the candidates.

  • Understanding the client’s needs: We learn about your business and organization stage, listen to what is important to you, your vision, long and short-term strategy and how would the particular person fit into that puzzle.
  • Search Plan: once receiving the job description or building it together, you will receive a project plan with the expected time lines and key steps we commit to take to achieve the best results.
  • Industry Analysis: Based on the results of these discussions we will develop an industry analysis and create a list of companies we plan to approach for suitable candidates.
  • Approaching potential candidates: once having an approved company list, we will use a systematic search methodology to identify and approach potential candidates.  This is where we differentiate ourselves – in covering the whole market to allocate the right profiles and in the ability to attract them to dare take a move into their next career challenge.
  • Shortlist of top candidates: according to the planned time frame we will present the client with the top candidates we sourced from the relevant market (industry & geography). Usually a shortlist consists of 3-4 candidates. A written detailed report will be provided on each recommended candidate.
    Our Advisory Board specialists will be consulted as per need and their detailed insight on the shortlist candidates will be added to our summary.
  • Finalizing search: Once receiving your feedback and deciding on the candidates you want to focus on, we will assist you through the interview process, professional reference checking and finalizing with the chosen candidate.
  • Track record follow up: we stay close to you and the candidate post hiring to support a smooth transition in the integration period, as well as follow up within 3 and 6 months. We take pride in checking up our track record every year to confirm a successful integration and find the candidates developing onwards in the company, in Israel and internationally.
