We have the expertise on the available media and the ability to negotiate significant discounts. The copy is subject to your approval and the advertisements can incorporate your corporate logo or can be written in a confidential style when discretion is required.<br />IDENTIFICATION AND EVALUATION<br />LIGHT & HOPE adopts a very thorough “research” approach to finding the best candidates. We use our industry contacts and also identify local companies where target candidates work. We then approach these individuals to introduce the position and understand their aspirations. If the position has been advertised, we will manage and review the response, contacting the relevant individuals who meet the requirements. The result is a shortlist of the strongest candidates in the marketplace.

LIGHT & HOPE will work closely with you to assess the merits of your preferred candidates and help you select the best candidate for your requirements.<br />DEVELOPING THE BEST OFFER<br />The search process can succeed or fail at this critical stage. Our responsibility is to consult on what it will take in today’s market to develop an offer that will close the deal with your selected candidate. LIGHT & HOPE will work with your team to develop an offer that will include base compensation, bonuses, equity, relocation and other factors that are acceptable to both you and your candidate.<br />NEGOTIATING & HANDLING DEPLOYMENT<br />At the closing of the candidate offer, LIGHT & HOPE is the “representative” that presents the offer to the candidate on your company’s behalf. This approach allows both parties to candidly express concerns regarding the offer while preserving their respective positions and not to jeopardize our future relationship. Once start dates are determined, we help the candidate with the deployment process. We provide an orientation on the position that they are undertaking<br />and the location where they will be working. It is vital that the candidate clearly understands the role and future that he is undertaking.
