Our Executive Search Services
Recruiting is finding ‘people for jobs’ – matching a qualified candidate to a client employer with a specific need, for mutual benefit. This simple statement is compounded by the complex interaction of businesses, people, and how we communicate and relate to each other. Because of this complexity, understanding the mindset of our client by asking intelligent questions and listening carefully to their answers allows us to determine the true business need. Similarly, understanding the mindset of our candidate by asking intelligent questions and listening carefully to their answers allows us to identify their aspirations, career trajectory and ‘fit’ with our client.
Determining the need, and doing what is best for the client, is the basis for our recruitment process.
From a detailed Job Analysis to the Replacement Insurance, we work to know our client and understand their business. We do not just fill requisitions; we work to ensure the person selected has the best predictability of success within the given workplace- or they are not presented. Our clients have recognized the significant value of including our search services in their hiring process.
Grasslands Recruitment Specialists is pleased to offer search options to address your specific recruitment needs. We will craft each search to reflect your unique needs and circumstances. Our executive search process provides you with an opportunity to acquire a top-tiered candidate. Each step in our process provides a piece of essential information required to make an informed hiring decision.
