Our approach in detail:

1) Role Specification

Wilton and Bain’s project team will carefully assess the client’s needs. Working as a team we will provide a detailed analysis of the type of candidate that would best suit the identified position. Our consultant’s knowledge, professionalism and experience will provide valuable information on the type of candidate.

2) Research & Strategy

The project team will mutually agree on time specifications for the search, as well as a detailed analysis of the competitive landscape, identification of target companies and potential candidates will be agreed upon. The project team will conduct a systematic investigation of all existing data sources within the target companies to identify applicants for search, supplementing this with fresh research. Wilton & Bain will also draw on its global network and resources to leverage and identify suitable candidates for the specific role.

3) Identification of qualified candidates

Once the project team has identified prospective candidates, they will be contacted initially by telephone by a Search Consultant to evaluate their suitability. Relevant candidates will be invited for an interview to discuss the role further and determine their suitability.

4) Candidate Interview & Offer Stage

Face to face interviews will be held with potential candidates to:

  • Sell the concept of a move to the client.
  • Evaluate their skills, experience, knowledge, personality, culture fit, and expectations.
  • Provide confidential written reports.

Throughout the process W&B will: liaise closely with both client and candidate to provide feedback and to co-ordinate meetings and schedules. Provide advice on acceptance parameters, compensations and benefits when offers are made. Counsel candidates to ensure that a mutually satisfactory acceptance is achieved.

5) Post placement:

Post placement review and analysis and post placement candidate care. As research is conducted and candidates are interviewed, we will build up a confidential dossier on behalf of the client detailing pay structures and compensation for relevant individuals within the market sector.
