Our clients frequently include an experiential element into senior recruitment processes. Seeing a candidate in action can provide invaluable insights into how that person may perform their duties in the real world. Typically, we re-create conversations with various stakeholders or challenge the candidate with handling a sensitive Media interview. This approach is used in both the Public and Private sectors; here are some examples of recruitment processes we have worked on:
- Commercial: appointment of a senior level Director to create a brand-new Service Division working across the global group.
- Law: appointment of a commercial MD into a Partnership for the very first time.
- Health: appointment of a new CEO for a regional Ambulance Service; appointment of a new FD for a major Health Trust.
- Education: appointment of a Marketing Director for a third level College; appointment of a new CEO and Directors for a regional education authority.
