Steps to a Masterpiece
The cornerstone of a successful recruitment lies in a detailed briefing. In order for a search to be efficient and fruitful, in-depth knowledge of the industry, the organisation, the corporate culture, the main tasks and, consequently, the requirement profile must be acquired. The document serves as a touchstone, defining all the requirements of the role and preventing searches from veering off course. A search strategy is developed and defined together with the client.
Our research centre conducts a comprehensive market analysis, identifies the relevant target companies with a market mapping and compiles the contact list. A pool of potential candidates is formed who, based on the initial preselection, are a fit for the position. The market analysis is iteratively refined throughout the entire recruitment process and enriched with newly acquired knowledge.
Meister Executive Search AG discreetly contacts the most suitable and promising candidates. In case of mutual interest after the first phone call, the candidate provides the curriculum vitae as a sign of commitment and interest. We gain interesting marketing insights also from people who refrain from entering the recruitment process. We can therefore provide our customers with a neutral market echo for each mandate.
Preselection and Interview
After telephone candidate checks challenging the main criteria and framework conditions, the preselection is conducted resulting in invitations for personal interviews with Meister Executive Search AG. Our consultants closely examine and assess the candidate along the outlined requirement criteria in semi-structured interviews. A positive interview results in a detailed dossier on the candidate which is handed over to the client.
Subsequently, our clients invite the best and most interesting candidates for an initial personal interview. Meister Executive Search AG will handle the administration and coordination of the interview. The responsible consultant gladly participates in the interview, moderation and bringing our know-how to the meeting.
The mandate ends with the selection of the preferred candidate and signing of the employee contract. Our consultant closely supports the client and the candidates in the contract negotiations and is available for advice. If requested, an independent assessor will further assess and evaluate the candidates. Meister Executive Search AG is available as a sparring partner for obtaining references, finalising the employment contract and other coordinative activities.
