  3. 3. ExecutiveSearch DEDICATION TO DELIVERY Many of our clients choose James Knight Executive on an exclusive Search and Selection basis when considering the hire of senior level staff or those with rare skill sets due to our successful track record in identifying professionals from untapped pools. Executive Search and Selection is a focused and managed recruitment process targeting a particular section of the market that will identify key professionals within it. It guarantees choice not chance by using current information and an understanding and analysis of potential new talent. Each assignment is a unique & consultative process. We listen, understand, act and provide the solution to your objectives. The process will commence with a meeting to gauge a thorough understanding of the strategic plan. From this we identify target companies in the market and the relevant teams and individuals working within them. This forms the basis of the initial long-list. The next step is to “take to market” the detail on the position and pro-actively approach key individuals, whereby we pre-screen them against the brief through interview and conclude with the presentation of a shortlist of suitable candidates. With the majority of professionals who live and breathe the market and work around the clock, very few find the time to trawl through press ad’s or register with online job boards of recruitment agents. They work with us directly in securing their next opportunity on a more personal and professional level. Our approach and experience is geared to recognise skills, not salary. Skills being the measurable components of ‘talent’. We advise a client that search is the best option not according to the salary but the strategic definition of the role. Search identifies and targets capability, performance and potential and is deemed to be the most pro-active and tailored approach when recruiting and the best way in finding top talent.+44(0)1444 255 125www.jamesknightexec.co.uk

  5. 5. AdvertisedSearch TALENT PIPELINE James Knight Executive provides an advertised search & selection service utilising advertising campaigns in national papers, trade press and the Internet. Advertising remains an important means of sourcing candidates and expanding a network of contacts. Adverts are often used when the boundaries for the recruitment assignment are too broad to rely on simply an Executive Search. For example, there may be no geographic boundaries; the client is open to a wide variety of backgrounds to suit the role and with no preference on the sector that the candidate may have derived from. Advertised Search and Selection can also be a useful means of enhancing company profile and branding within the market. A major factor for using this service is to save our clients precious time as national advertising will attract a high volume of applicants. It is our responsibility to qualify and screen all applicants, interview the relevant people and submit our recommendations as to who is genuinely suitable. We provide the complete service from the design and placement of the advert through to the provision of the suitable shortlist. We have an in house Marketing Consultant who has carried out a number of advertising campaigns on behalf of a broad range of clients with great success. Having worked within the world of marketing for more than a decade he is best placed at creating the perfect advert to attract talent. Advertised search and selection is designed to attract the widest possible audience response and is utilised in conjunction with both Database Search and Executive Search.+44(0)1444 255 125www.jamesknightexec.co.uk

  7. 7. TalentAssessment “Our business relies on continuously maximising, identifying & assessing only the best talent within the industry” The appointment of a candidate whose background reveals significant shortcomings can seriously damage the reputation of a business. It is therefore paramount that on each assignment we undertake thorough reference checks that include: • Talking formally to named referees • Talking informally to unnamed referees • Confirm academic and professional qualifications • Competency Analysis   Our referencing is summarised and provided upon request. Full referencing will provide a substantial insight into the candidate’s professional style, personal behavior, strengths and weaknesses and areas of motivation.   As part of our assessment of candidates we use competency based  analysis. With your assistance we produce a number of relevant  competency questions that require candidate to provide real life  examples as the basis to their answers.  This will construct a picture of relevant performance using examples of  past experiences. Competency methods are phrased in such a way to   encourage accurate behavioral tendencies. Helping decision making  as to whether they may fit into your organisation.+44(0)1444 255 125www.jamesknightexec.co.uk
