It will make the entire recruitment process more effective, efficient, manageable and rewarding. The Clarks Group stringently maintains a set of core values:
Commitment to Personalized Service
When a company has an opening they are susceptible. Whether it is an existing position, or a newly created position that becomes available – the hiring process must be strictly confidential. Confidentiality can keep competitors from being tipped off about management shake-ups and can protect against employee, stockholder, and supplier apprehension. The Clarks Group’s professional staff value the highly sensitive information shared during the Job Search. We are acutely aware and respectful of our client’s confidentiality.
The power of our industry and functional experience, coupled with our desire to provide premier customer service and personal attention, allows our clients the opportunity to experience these values. Every search is different and each client’s needs are different.
The professionals at The Clarks Group understand the intricacies of your needs as well as the needs of the candidates. Thus, our process is tailored to the specifications of the search, and as each search differs, so too does the process.
Working Together Before The Search Begins
A successful Search is a team effort between the client and the search firm. It is beneficial for the client to gather the following information before a formal search begins:
Clarify who at the search firm will actually execute the search for your company.
Agree on a job description and compensation package
Relay intangibles – personality desired, personalities in the department
Agree on a general schedule and timetable, and for progress reports
Make a list of companies that should be included or excluded from the search.
Have an arrangement with your search consultant as to what their participation will be in the negotiation of the remuneration package with the candidate.
Review the Fee & Contract Agreement with the search firm.
A successful partnership between a client and search firm is a two-sided arrangement that requires professional respect. The approach to this relationship influences the speed and outcome of the entire Job Search. One of the most important factors of successful search is that the client understands their vital role in the process.
