“My involvement with Greenings has been an eye-opening, invigorating and very positive as Andrew’s team has helped explode many of the negative myths about ‘head hunters’. The Greenings ethos, that the client is a person (not simply an entity) and the candidate is a human being (not just a name on a list) and both are given support and nurturing, has shown me a side of the industry which I (and I am sure many others) did not know exist. The longevity of Andrew’s clients (many of whom are former candidates) shows that Greenings is infused with enduring professional values which are intertwined with real humanity. ‘Enervative, refreshing and inspiring’ summarises my Greening experience.”

Our Search Methodology

Phase 1: Preparing For Success
• Your brief is validated by our expert team, including personal and technical criteria, current and future demands of the role and your competitive environment. Target geographies and organisations are established.

• You are introduced to your dedicated, cross-border team who will support you throughout the entire process from briefing to onboarding. Milestones are agreed for delivery of the project and the levels of engagement required by all stakeholders for a successful, timely outcome.

• The candidate profile is created and affirmed along with marketing materials to secure candidate engagement and, leveraging 30 years of global networking, benchmark candidates are presented to you in order to clarify skills, seniority and affordability. Sector experts are consulted on the developing candidate list and regular progress updates with all stakeholders begin.
Phase 2: Delivery
• We facilitate a roundtable discussion with all stakeholders to compare the leading candidates and help decide your selection for shortlist interviews. Testing tools, exercises and interview formats are recommended and subsequent reports are compiled to produce early comparisons between shortlisted candidates and a basis for your face to face interviews.

• We guide you through post-interview scoring and analysis to help determine the best fit with your role, culture and objectives.

• Negotiations with both parties are led by Greenings to secure a positive outcome, managing the process from verbal offer through to signing of contracts and agreeing a start date.

• Greenings conducts best practice executive due diligence which complies with your local jurisdiction and corporate policy and includes reputational and behavioural history, validation of educational and professional accomplishments, and alignment with competency framework and psychometric data. Throughout this sensitive period, we stay close to all parties to reach a swift conclusion and ensure that other final stage candidates remain engaged, should it prove necessary to revisit the shortlist.
Phase 3: Ensuring Future Success
• Our expert coaching team work with you to create an effective integration programme for your new executive appointment.

• The successful candidate is mentored throughout the period leading up to start date and during the first 90 days in their new role. Providing a framework to maximise early impact during this initial crucial period, we review and measure performance against the briefing criteria, profile and key performance indicators, helping your executive recruit to achieve his or her organisational goals and accelerate their full integration into your business.

• Finally we hold a review meeting with all stakeholders to discuss the success of delivery, quality of engagement and resulting value. Assignment performance metrics are presented and reciprocal feedback between client and shortlisted candidates is shared on process and outcome.
