"Sourcing the right talent is the ultimate competitive differentiator. For well over a decade I have trusted Tim's judgment in finding key contributors and executive talent capable of helping my teams win. He has never wasted my time and has consistently sourced very high quality talent, I highly recommend him."
"While at Dow Jones, I had the opportunity to work with at least two colleagues who were recruited to DJ through Tim. Each made outstanding contributions to DJ and were well matched to their positions. Tim would be the person that I would entrust to find your next management-level hire."
This is what separates a true "partnership" from a typical outsourced arrangement. When a prospective client asks the question, we know they're serious. We love to engage in challenging tasks but we would like to be assured of being compensated. Notice, we didn't say how much. The takeaway here is that we'd be happy to reduce our fees (sometimes substantially) for an agreed upon exclusive right to hire.
Because here you get the best ROI and the best experience, specific -- we deliver: Better quality candidates (testimonials prove it) Hires who stay longer (we've kept score) More rigorous vetting (nobody does what we do in this case) More accurate fits (presume their longer tenure proves this) How we deliver a better client experience: More trust due to highest integrity Proven repeatable method - it just works Worry free due to track record, and approach
We learn your style through face-to-face meetings, phone conversations and e-mails with senior executives and board members. We’ll help you articulate the most important set of requirements for skills and personality.
With more than 20 years of experience in executive searches, we are experts in finding candidates. While we use existing databases, as all executive search firms do, we know better than to stop there. The best candidates may not even be looking for new positions. When we approach them, we already know how their industries and specific companies are doing. We also tap social networks, our deep professional and personal contacts in your industry, and our reputation for ethical placement.
Our fees are far less than huge global firms and perhaps the most competitive in the entire industry. We work hard to understand the nuances, cultural fit , and "X factor" required for a long term match, and expect the individual to make repeated contributions earning an impressive ROI for our client
Yes and no. We have the subscriptions and access we need, but our experience has taught us what to watch for in a candidate. There is little correlation between those who talk a good game and those who accomplish great things. Charisma alone won’t get the job done. We carefully pose questions that encroach just enough on the candidate’s professional identity to make them “put some skin in the game" taking them out of the realm of anonymity that is associated the web-based recruiting..
It depends, but quality always comes first. For example, unlike many other executive search firms, we vet the candidates up front. We won’t even consider candidates who don’t agree to let us check with a former boss. By checking references at the start, we avoid any last-minute collapse of the search process and having to start over. That protects your time as well.
We can help to answer that after creating an intial 'target list' and contacting a sample of the list. You’ll receive an assessment report on each and every individual prospect we have contacted, whether they have developed into candidates or not. This will serve as a "snapshot" of the marketplace as well as targeted individual candidate/prospect information.
Throughout the process, you’ll work with Tim McIntyre, Founder and CEO of The Executive Search Group. You won’t be handed off to a less experienced staff member. That’s important, because handoffs are when important items most often get dropped or misinterpreted.
