Executive Search

A full end-to-end service, executive search proactively generates interest for the role with potential candidates in the marketplace, including those candidates not actively seeking a different role, but for whom the role could be attractive. Candidates are evaluated against agreed technical specifications, cultural fit and other criteria, before a shortlist of well-qualified candidates is presented for client interview. Final candidate(s) will be subject to Katie Adler Consulting’s due diligence process as part of this service.

Advertised Executive Recruitment

Using on-line platforms, Katie Adler will advertise your role to reach a spectrum of on-target candidates. Candidate care is front-of-mind throughout the process and candidates are treated with respect in accordance with Katie Adler Consulting’s Values and Privacy Policy. A thorough evaluation and interviewing schedule ensures that the most suitable candidate(s) are put forward for client meetings.

Market Mapping

Invaluable as an aid to your talent and succession planning, a current market map of a functional area will provide assurance and a quick response when unexpected vacancies arise.

Due Diligence on Candidates

As an integral part of the hiring process and to provide confidence in the candidate’s abilities, a full reference check will be undertaken from three nominated referees, together with a qualification check conducted by an independent third party organisation. This service is included in the executive search service above and can be undertaken on request to compliment other services.
