ABOUT
 KAWAS
CONSULTING




    Kawas Consulting is a premier executive search consultancy that specializes in placing world-class senior
    talent in the Middle East and North Africa.

    With over ten years’ experience, we excel at providing quality service and building strong business
    relationships with our clients. Most of all we are passionate about making the right match. Our network
    across all major industries coupled with our experience in research across the Levant, Gulf and North
    Africa enables us to identify, qualify and develop the best available candidates swiftly and successfully.

    Our philosophy is to be your business partner rather than a service provider. We are thus the advisors of
    choice among leading organizations who seek guidance and counsel on senior and executive
    requirements.

    Our objective in every assignment is to identify systematically the best available relevant talent in the
    candidate universe.

    Prior to the commencement of any assignment, we strive to develop a complete understanding of your
    requirements, thus ensuring that we place executives with the ideal background, capability, attitude
    and cultural fit, quickly and effectively.

ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY
 KAWAS
CONSULTING




                                         We employ competency-based assessment tools and techniques
                                         to ensure that we execute objective candidate assessments. The
                                         main purpose for this is to ensure that we assess candidates
                                         scientifically.

                                         One approach used is the Position Specification. This document
                                         defines the key performance areas of the position as well as the
                                         minimum requirements of the ideal candidate in terms of
                                         competence (qualifications, skills, experience and personality
                                         profile).




    The entire value chain rests upon the accuracy of the Position Specification, based specifically on the
    minimum candidate requirements.

    Candidates approached are therefore assessed to objectively and scientifically ascertain whether they
    are meeting the pre-agreed minimum requirements.

    Only candidates that meet the minimum requirements are taken through to the Long List phase.

    When these profiles are approved, selected shortlisted candidates are interviewed face-to-face. Best-fit
    candidates are thereon presented to the Client.
