Executive Search & Selection
firstasia offers Executive Search & Selection services, which target the middle to upper level of Managers and Executives.
firstasia uses a method of recruiting high quality, senior level managers or executives, and identify, approach and assess candidates whose skills and experiences best match our client requirements.
While we have to tailor our efforts to meet individual clients requirements, we do follow a systematic approach that is common to all assignment as follows:
1. We meet our client for a detailed briefing discussion and develop a position des-cription and candidate specifications that describe the basic duties, responsibilities, the essential qualifications and personal characteristics of the executives to be identified. Thus, we ensure that we have a correct understanding of the requirement.
2. We develop the search strategy and research target industries and companies likely to search for well-qualified executives closely matching the specifications.
3. Having discreetly identified an initial list of prospective candidates, we then approach and interview in depth those that best match the requirements to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the candidates’ qualifications, capabilities, accomplishments and potentials, their interests in the opportunity, monetary and fringe packages.
4. We present the most qualified candidates to our client in the form of detailed, confidential written reports of short listed candidates.
5. We make the arrangements for the preferred candidate to meet our client, usually in a mutually confidential environment, following which we make reference check with full candidate approval.
6. Once our client selects a candidate, we provide assistance in egotiating the acceptance of the offer of employment and later, after commencement, we provide our client with support in following both the orientation and progress of the candidate appointed.
During the course of an assignment, the identity of our clients is never disclosed, at least up to the stage when our client starts meeting selected candidates. This enables the maximum discretion and confidentiality.
