“…each time, and particularly most recently, the briefs were challenging to say the least. We almost wanted the impossibly specific hire for our business and SILK Search left no stone unturned. The shortlist of 4 was such that we could have hired any of the candidates, proving their ability to think laterally and unpredictably.”
We act as an extension of our client’s brand and philosophy; therefore, we place great importance on spending time with them in their business to take a clear and concise brief, understanding their brand DNA, team dynamic and future ambitions.
Following this, our target list takes shape as a personalized wish list of brands and individuals, yielding a candidate profile in line with the brief.
We can then begin to match and qualify candidates, by actively approaching and interviewing each person, down to a long list of best-fit individuals whom we invite for final round interviews in person. We use our network of contacts and trusted confidants to qualify beyond the information we reap from the interviews, assessing elements such as employment track record, reputation and people skills.
Concluding our interviews, candidate recommendations are distilled into a shortlist document, with a detailed summary on each individual including; their career choices, their learning’s, achievements and career aspirations, in order to provide holistic and thoughtful introductions.
We remain involved at every stage of the hiring process to guarantee timely and transparent communication; including the interview process with our client, references, extending the offer, counter offer management throughout the notice period and managing a successful on-boarding process.
Ensuring a successful long-term hire.
