Cranford Featuring ExecSelect – Benefits

ExecSelect is an advanced, effective recruitment methodology, utilising comprehensive profiling technology and best practice designed by our Senior Recruiters to ensure only the very best candidates make it to interview stage. Let’s take a look at how it works, and some of the key elements that make it such a reliable and robust recruitment approach.

Deep-dive Search and Selection

There are many compelling reasons for choosing ExecSelect for your senior recruitment search and selection campaign, here’s how the process works:

  • Senior Director/Partner Meeting – We’ll visit you in your offices to discuss the role, gain detailed insight into your business culture and values, define key skills, competencies and behaviours
  • Advertise and Explore – Led by your assigned Partner or Director, we’ll issue a proactive and far-reaching search campaign, actively seeking out top candidate matches through candidate networks, social media and targeted ‘head-hunting’
  • Invite – We’ll invite any suitable, interested parties to participate via the sophisticated, ExecSelect software platform
  • Request – Based on your specific, individual requirements, we’ll ask candidates to complete a variety of tasks such as video presentations, psychometric assessments, written competency tests and strength/weakness evaluations
  • Benchmarking – Auto-generate graphs for easy comparisons between candidates, based on skills, behaviours and salary expectations
  • Consolidate – All details will be analysed by your recruitment expert, with their findings and comments added into your secure, online account, providing in-depth information in one easily accessible place
  • Share with Stakeholders – All stakeholders can now view and share the detailed information and can decide who to invite to interview with the confidence that participating candidates have already demonstrated their full commitment to the process together with the exact personal and professional attributes required for successful placement.

This comprehensive and highly detailed pre-screening process delivers a 96% retention rate after 12 months, and also allows you to tailor your interview questions and technique to each individual candidate.

Changing the way Recruitment works

Modern recruitment methods have become largely reliant on basic CV skill searches – but with most bad hires being caused by behaviours, it simply isn’t enough to hand over a batch of generic CVs to a client and hope that they’ll find the best fit for the role. Let’s face it, you don’t even know for certain that the candidate actually produced it themselves.

By taking advantage of our advanced recruitment methodology, you’ll benefit in many ways:

  • Less time screening CVs
  • Less time interviewing unsuitable candidates
  • Reduce internal meetings
  • Bad hire risks are mitigated
  • Less time negotiating salaries
  • More targeted, tailored interviews
  • Candidate enthusiasm and commitment established at outset

We already work with a wide range of leading companies, who have experienced firsthand the incredible results provided by our methodology, including:

  • Lockheed Martin
  • Callcredit
  • Crisp Thinking
  • Deutsche Bahn Group

Why not join them, confident in the knowledge that if we don’t deliver we offer up to a 12 month free replacement promise?
