Our 'Diverse Search' Service - for clients who are truly committed to diversity
Senior level: clients frequently desire candidates with specific, relevant experience, already operating at a senior level. Undoubtedly, a diverse shortlist is more challenging at this level.
We have an honest, open relationship with our clients and we take the time to understand their requirements. There needs to be a recognition that an investment in time really can make a difference. Clients who are truly invested in their commitment to Diversity engage us to provide a 'Diverse Search' service. Rather than tickling the surface of the same old candidate pool when under pressure to provide a shortlist in 48 hours, this retained service allows us the necessary time to do a deep dive into the market, use our referral networks, tap into communities and advertise through non-traditional routes to deliver a potentially richer shortlist.
We are using a number of strategies to build up a database of senior management individuals from diverse backgrounds. We would hope to work with clients to identify areas of compromise and acceptable skills/experience deficits to enable a more diverse shortlist to be deemed acceptable.
