Our experience includes having executed our Search Process where it has helped some companies to fill their search assignments in as little 3 to 4 weeks, and others with an extensive and prolonged interview, selection, and assessment process in 8 to 12+ weeks. Typically, searches are completed within 4 to 8 weeks after the intake meeting (i.e., a candidate has accepted an offer made within 4 to 8 weeks after the intake meeting),
Every search assignment has its own unique set of internal and external marketplace challenges that impact the competitiveness and timeliness of its completion: singularly or a combination of the title, level, reporting structure, governance, expectations, day-to-day accountabilities/content, location, work arrangement, pipeline, the depth and quality of the science, company and senior management track record and reputation, company culture and work environment, compensation package, funding etc. have an impact on the search assignment’s attractiveness and competitiveness in the marketplace.
We work very closely and collaboratively with our clients throughout the entire search process: from the search kickoff through to the hired candidate’s start date, where we provide them with our professional advice and suggestions, and timely marketplace feedback (the good, and at times the not-so-good) in a consultative manner to help them decide how best to “stay the course” with their initial candidate criteria and opportunity offerings and selection process, or recalibrate some or all of the same to be more competitive for the highly sought-after talent they seek to hire in the marketplace in a timely manner.
