OUR SERVICES

Recruitment Services

Grant Executive Search understands our clients’ strengths and goals and we develop our candidate acquisition strategies to meet their needs.  We provide sophisticated sourcing strategies to access the entire candidate market including passive candidates who are not actively seeking new positions.

 

We work closely with our clients to provide an assignment specific solution. We incorporate additional value-adding features through the following bespoke sourcing methodologies:

 

Executive Search

Grant Executive Search has established itself as a provider of Executive Search to deliver on senior, confidential and complex mandates.

 

Our knowledge of the markets we operate in is deep and current and provides clients with a unique opportunity to quickly access the premium talent that is not “on-market” or actively seeking opportunities.  Supported by a dedicated Research Manager we are able to leverage intellectual property to map the market and qualify potential candidates.

 

Advertised Search

Grant Executive Search is nimble in using all channels to market.  We access the most effective methodology to fulfil the assignment including advertising and online and propriety databases to complement the candidates sourced through Executive Search.

 

We are committed to our role as an ambassador of our clients’ brand and manage the application and selection process through tight controls and with respect for clients and candidates.

 

Database Search and Research Team

Our significant database of candidates reflects the markets and functions that we recruit in.  Through the use of advanced technology and information management capabilities, we are swift in identifying relevant candidates for opportunities.

 

Grant Executive Search also has an active research team which affords us significant exposure to inactive candidates, market trends, business insights and puts us onestep ahead at all times.

 

External Talent Management

This process works to manage risk and effectively positions your organisation to manage the twists and turns of the candidate market.

 

Depending on your strategic agenda and appetite for managing risk we can develop a talent pool for your current and future organisational needs, and capture both active and in-active candidates for you to build and maintain a relationship with top talent in the market.

 

The program works in harmony with your internal succession planning and business development strategies to include:

  • Existing positions on your organisation chart that are strategically important, have a low bench-strength, or are difficult to resource; and
  • Future recruitment required to resource your corporate development plans.

 

This a great risk management tool if you are concerned about a key person moving on to other opportunities or where you regularly recruit in this area and don’t want to wait 8 weeks to 4 months to get a new hire on board.

 

Put very simply, we will identify and manage a pipeline of talent that meets your short-range and long-range recruitment needs.

 

Executive Contracting

Grant Executive Contracting offers solutions for interim and executive contracting assignments including strategy, deployment, program and project requirements, change management and transformation initiatives as well as senior finance roles requiring urgent coverage.

 

Our service includes the same detailed, personalised recruitment process expected of the Grant Executive Search permanent process.  This process includes robust sourcing and selection methods and all candidates are comprehensively interviewed and fully briefed.

 

Internal consulting services and benchmarking talent

Grant Executive Search has a well-qualified, experienced consulting team whose skills can be utilised in supporting key internal hires, providing consulting support and career guidance to develop talent internally.

Our consultants are experts in the recruitment market and, using our corporate knowledge and networks, provide a personalised, professional and confidential service designed to ensure you are matched with the best possible opportunities.

 

At Grant Executive Search we are committed to providing our candidates with honest feedback, practical advice and extensive career opportunities.

 

Candidate Advocacy

At Grant Executive Search we don’t just provide you with existing opportunities, we are proactive in promoting candidates to our leading clients.  We work with you to ascertain what your key value proposition is and then promote your abilities/prowess to relevant clients. During our in depth discussions we seek to understand how you can best add value to our clientele and also look to understand which clients can provide the best pathways for your current career aspirations.  With many of our candidates we have enjoyed a long term relationship, providing them with advice and opportunities many times throughout their career.

 

Mentoring

With vast backgrounds and experience our consultants are able to provide informal career advice, professional development suggestions and an understanding of recruitment and career choices.  Our consultants will provide you with an honest approach and the best possible strategies to ensure positive career choices.

 

Resume Assistance

Resumes are important strategic documents and when it comes to job searching they can make the difference between progression and regression.  Grant Executive Search is able to provide assistance regarding the content, readability and the layout of your CV.  We have attached a template for your assistance.

Executive Coaching, Consulting and Advisory Services

Using our consulting and in-house research skills we provide the following valuable services;

 

Market Maps

Using our expertise in research and recruitment we run assignments to identify existing talent and map the target market to provide valuable competitor information to size markets and facilitate easier access to top talent

 

Salary Benchmarking

We can provide an independent snapshot of market salaries and details in target segments.
The salary benchmarking is tailored to your own specific needs and all results are based on extensive, high quality and real time data.

Depending on your strategic agenda and appetite for managing risk we can develop a talent pool for your current and future organisational needs, and capture both active and in-active candidates for you to build and maintain a relationship with top talent in the market.

Put very simply, we will identify and manage a pipeline of talent that meets your short-range and long-range recruitment needs.

 

Employee Value Proposition

In today’s competitive market employees are not just looking for the right role, they are looking for the best total work experience. They are seeking rewards, benefits and culture practises that feed into their belief systems and motivations.

 

With this in mind it is important that clients are increasingly aware of their business segment and company employee value proposition to ensure that they attract and retain high quality and high performing staff.

We can assist you in ensuring that you are tapping into all areas of potential candidate’s needs above and beyond salary and help you design a current and functional EVP.

 

Executive Coaching

Key executives in your organisation need external coaching to facilitate their development and to unlock potential for the benefit of your business.

 

As a qualified Executive Coach Andy Grant will work with HR leaders and executives to design and deliver a 8-10 week program to drive sustainable development with a focus on areas such as performance management, leadership, goal setting and planning.  This can also be incorporated into the feedback and counselling offered to internal candidates completing our talent benchmarking service.  Executive Coaching provides support to senior internal hires through a quantitative measure process providing clarity and building developmental strategies into the structured feedback process.
