The process

Headhunting is a search carried out in order to find key people – at the management and specialist level – with very specific personal and professional skills. This process requires absolute discretion and trust between client business, headhunting and candidates.

The starting point is a thorough analysis of the task then we can start the process of finding candidates that match the specified profile. The contact with candidates is a dialogue that will lead up to the company presented a number of qualified and motivated candidates. Our experience, from headhunting for all kinds of industry and at all levels, the company provides the best security for an optimal solution of the assignment.

We focus on a serious and effective process, but this requires planning. Therefore we define the dates for presentations and closing. We are looking for an ongoing dialogue with our customers through the entire process, so we have the best opportunity to finish at the agreed time.

In these years, almost every company is discovering, how difficult it is to attract and retain skilled employees. There is a intensive search for well-qualified managers, middle managers and specialists. In TARGET Headhunting we therefore use more channels to identify the most suitable candidates. “Simple” newspaper advertising is not the answer. It is necessary to go wider in the search process. We offer a headhunting process that includes a combination of:

  • Pure headhunting
  • CV Bank
  • Network
  • Advertising (often electronically or also in print media)

Before candidates are involved, a thorough preliminary work is done. We have an exhaustive dialogue with the company and its employees analyzing the job content and demands as well as the conditions and framework that the new employee will be expected to be part of. This work creates the basis of the job profile.

Phase 1:

In this phase, the background and the experience of the candidate is evaluated and compared to the job profile. Candidates matching the profile will be called in for an interview. The aim of the interview is to provide the candidate with information about the job and the company and to further clarify, whether the professional qualifications and possible management experience matches the job profile.

Phase 2:

The candidate fills in a Personal Profile Analysis and – if needed – an aptitude test followed by evaluation including written and oral feedback.

Phase 3:

In this phase, the candidate will be presented to his/her possible future manager and one or more key members of the organization. In all cases, we will be present at this meeting.

When the hiring process is completed, and the candidate has started working for the company a follow-up meeting is arranged with the candidate and the management with the purpose of securing that mutual expectations are met. As a rule, this meeting will take place 2-4 months after the appointment or according to the needs of the company or the candidate.
