Contingency & Exclusive Contingency Search
The specific methods used by The McCandlish Group in the executive search process are based entirely upon the individual client requirements. We utilize a proprietary profiling, interviewing, and management system that places the right candidates in the right positions for both our retained and contingency searches.
After profiling the position you wish to fill and sourcing potential candidates, we conduct both personal profile and technical profile interviews.
The personal profile interview considers the candidate’s personal style -- management style, work style, communication capability and personal preferences.
The technical profile interview considers the candidate’s technical assets -- technology and industry-specific skills, experience, and capabilities.
The results of these two interviews enable us to score each candidate on their fit with your position profile. Only the strongest candidates are presented to our clients, who then select candidates for further review.
The McCandlish Group arranges interviews, obtains feedback from candidates, facilitates two-way information exchange, presents offers and counter-offers, and closes candidates. Our interview/offer ratio is over 50%.
In addition to the above service package, our retained searches include the following:
Conduct in-depth, on-site meetings with the appropriate members of your company’s management to obtain a thorough understanding of the position requirements.
Provide feedback from the meetings, analysis of all critical organization and candidate issues, recommendations concerning position, specifications and recruitment guidelines and strategies.
Prepare the position specifications and submit for your final approval.
Optional Review and Evaluation of Internal Candidates
Review and evaluate all internal candidates you may wish to suggest. Provide a full evaluation and recommendation on each candidate based upon comprehensive interviews.
