EVERY BOX TICKED

From on-demand project staffing to time-sensitive executive searches, our solutions are individually designed to meet each company’s specific needs and goals. All by way of the same proven process:

 

Identify

The organization: First we interview key members of your team to fully understand your company, its goals, challenges, culture and hierarchy.

The need: Together, we define the scope of your project or position, performance goals, and the specific skill set and qualifications required.

The long list: We then search our exclusive network for finance and accounting’s top performers, relevant industry contacts and companies comparable to yours to identify all candidates who meet the established criteria. And our standards.

Evaluate

The pre-qualifying round: Next, we interview the candidates on the long list to assess their interest, motivation, level of readiness and endorsability. For project consultants, this includes reference and background checks.

The first cut: We then evaluate how the pre-qualified candidates stack up against each other and rank them accordingly.

The short list: Only the top 5 or 6 candidates for direct placement – or top 3 for interim positions – will make it onto our short list.

Deliver

The first impression: We’ll help you coordinate interview with the short-listed candidates, provide any necessary interview tutoring, and follow up with both parties to assess interest and perceived compatibility.

The final cut: After your interviews, we arrange necessary reference and background checks and offer our expertise to assist you in making your final selection.

The hire: Once you’ve made your decision, we assist with salary negotiations and facilitate a seamless transition, with periodic follow-up to ensure the satisfaction of all parties.
