LEADERSHIP INSIGHT

We aim to bring transparency and rigour into the search process by first achieving critical insight into the nuances that set the individual organisation and role apart, and then by assessing shortlisted candidates using proven methodologies and frameworks to reveal their leadership potential and fit.

OUR APPROACH

Partnership

The Executive search process is a partnership that involves establishing a keen understanding the organisation's goals, values, and culture. This means interacting closely not only with the recruitment team but with the rest of the leadership team so we can identify candidates that best match the organisation's needs.

Networks

We leverage our extensive networks to identify and engage with potential candidates, before interacting with them closely to understand their own individual skill sets, capabilities, and career ambitions. This ensures that their personal values align as closely as possible with those of the organisation, and allow the selected candidate to not only hit the ground running, but to assume a role of influence from the get go.

Search Process

We employ a sharply focused yet agile approach to the search process, continually evaluating business needs with candidate fit. On the one hand this enables the business needs to stay alive to opportunities through an ongoing dialogue between the organisation, the recruitment team, us, and shortlisted candidates. On the other hand the approach allows candidates to understand the organisations ambitions, values, and culture.

Search Team

The Executive Search function is managed directly by a Partner in the Encore Mindseek team, each leveraging their decades-long experience, industry knowledge, and extensive network to find the most suitable candidates. Our Partners are former practitioners who come from diverse industries like Automotive, Banking, Technology, Pharmaceuticals, FMCG, Media, Manufacturing, Finance, and Food & Drink.  

Yes, retaining an executive search firm will mean an investment, but ask yourself how much it would cost the business to make the wrong hire, or for the role to remain vacant while you try to fill it yourself?

WHAT WE OFFER

01.

Return on Investment

The investment you make in the search process will far outweight the cost of hiring the wrong candidate or of delaying the hire.

03.

Confidentiality

We hold privacy and discretion at the heart of everything we do. We provide an 'under the radar' service, protecting the trust of both employers and candidates.

05.

Probability of Success

At the highest levels the clock starts ticking the moment you decide to hire. The cost and business implications of delays demand an approach that ensures the best odds of success.

02.

Access to Passive Candidates

Most candidates at the seniormost level operate at high levels of discretion and are unlikely to appear on normal radars. Our networks and contacts enable access to a far larger pool of suitable candidates than would otherwise be possible.

04.

Immediate Impact

With senior hires you need an experienced hand who can take quick charge, not someone who takes six months to gain traction.

06.

Partnership

We operate as your partners, working closely with your teams on a retained model, taking on only a handful of assignments at any given time.
