When it comes to top candidates for executive positions, all recruiters focus their efforts to find people who meet almost all the criteria in the job description, who can prove that they understand the culture of the company, and will integrate quickly and fit in terms of personality with the line manager and the rest of the team.
But, in addition to all this, the candidate’s profile must be as close as possible to that of an efficient manager. That is, a team leader and team player, who knows how to motivate his team, to help people grow professionally and to be a role-model. The candidate must also be a good organizer, react well in stressful situations, and have the ability to find a solution when a problem arises.
The process of recruiting a manager generally takes about four weeks. In the first week, the target companies and the target candidates are identified by clinical recruiters with industry knowledge, and, in the following week, recruiters contact the candidates that best suit the client’s needs and requirements. In the third week, face-to-face interviews are organized with those who have passed the first stages and are tested in terms of personality and skills. In the fourth week, the evaluation reports are made and the references for the shortlisted candidates are taken.
