This approach allows you to effectively close any, even fairly rare positions. For example, the Head of Infield Pipeline Construction, the Head of Well Support and Workover Development, or the Commercial Director of Polyurethanes. Sometimes the search conditions become truly extreme, below is one such case.
Case No.1: Non-standard search for a top manager
Task: Finding an Executive Director for a new line of business in an international engineering company.
At the start: The client started a search through an international executive search agency, but within 3 months there were no results. The customer is disappointed.
Solution: The Stafferty Senior Consultant has agreed to provide no more than 5 candidates from our database who meet the requirements of the vacancy.
Result: After four rounds of interviews, one of the five Stafferty candidates received a job offer. From the first conversation with HRD until the employee went to work, 10 months passed, including 4 months of lockdown and suspension of negotiations due to COVID-19.
Case No. 2: How to close an “unclosed” top position?
Task: A client approached Stafferty with an urgent search for a COO with direct reporting to the owner.
Important: Over the past year, 3 managers have changed in this position.
Solution: We held 2 sessions discussing the business tasks of the Client and found out that historically in this organization the COO solved the tasks of the commerce, HR, and finance departments, which made it difficult to find a person with linear experience.
Result: We proposed to the Customer to change the structure of the position and systematize operational management differently. As a result, after the restructuring of job responsibilities, we were able to offer the Client a pool of more relevant candidates, one of which was chosen.
