the MINDSET process

Mindset matters. That's why we look beyond skills and experience and explore the attitude, temperament and self motivation of the senior talent we shortlist. Our in depth process helps to determine whether these candidates have the right mindset fit with your company culture and with the specific demands of your senior role.
Benchmark profile

Our clients complete our online mindset profiler to establish a strong benchmark profile of the ideal candidates attitude and behaviours. This along with a detailed skills and experience brief and a cultural immersion session forms our search criteria.

executive search

We are expert exponents of pro-active headhunt orientated search. We have particularly strong experience of tackling senior, strategically important and hard to fill positions where the pool of potential candidates is small, highly specialist and hard to reach.

in-depth assessment

Shortlisted candidates are invited to access our selection portal, My-Mindset. They answer tailored competency based questions, upload an elevator pitch video, and complete a behavioural assessment. We map this against your benchmark profile.

1 year Guarantee

We conduct thorough due diligence on your chosen candidate gaining references from previous line managers, clients and from their previous direct employees. We then offer a full 12 month replacement guarantee on the successful hire.
