Accreate will partner with you to deliver the best executive talent to drive your business forward through our proven executive search process.
Delivered by your trusted practice leader our process involves five main phases:
- Understanding your needs
- Establish a realistic candidate profile
- Leverage local networks & industry insights
- Attract and evaluate candidates
- Present most qualified candidates
We want to ensure we understand your business, your mission, your corporate values and ambitions so that we can identify a slate of candidates who best fit your leadership needs.
Non Executive Directors
Our ability to identify and source senior executives for your leadership teams also extends to board appointments. Like you, we recognise that when boards, CEO’s and leadership teams thrive, organisations succeed and industries evolve.
With an intimate understanding of your business ambitions, board functionality and dynamics we can leverage our search expertise to help you find the right board member to carry out your board’s strategic objectives.
Interim Executive Positions
We know that the pace of change across your organisation and industry is relentless. It’s imperative, now more than ever, that you have the right leadership in place, at all times.
We appreciate that change doesn't stop for anyone and that your organisation should not suffer when there is a sudden departure of critical leadership.
We can support you in identifying the right leadership quickly when you have an unexpected opening on your leadership team. These executives will not only ‘keep the lights on’ while you search for the right leadership, long term, but they will also work to enhance the organisation goals in the absence of key leadership.
We understand that in a world full of data and with the war on talent - competitive intelligence is your advantage.
Knowing who your competitors are, their leadership structure and key hires, is a source of insight for your business.
Accreate is home to a team of highly skilled researchers who engage in comprehensive market mapping to gather relevant insights and intelligence around the availability of top tier talent with specific skillsets relative to your industry. We will use this intelligence to create detailed reports illustrating who’s who in your industry to guide your workforce development strategy and provide critical information about your competitors.
We appreciate that successful senior appointments is about more than placing an individual in the role.
As advisors to your business Accreate are well placed to support senior leaders when integrating into your business.
Practice leaders will design a bespoke onboarding programme working extensively with key stakeholders in your business and the oncoming leader to ensure a clear roadmap to success is paved.
Understanding your needs
A successful search process is contingent upon developing an intimate understanding of your business and its objectives. We endeavour to build trust and develop a thorough understanding of your needs, to ensure a transparent and discerning search process.
Establish a realistic candidate profile
Our Practice Leaders will support you in identifying the industry experience, skills and traits needed to be effective in your organisation. This will result in the creation of a specific candidate profile which allows us to benchmark prospective candidates throughout the process to find you the best fit candidate.
Leverage local networks & industry insights
Our Practice Leaders have an appreciation for your organisational challenges and the difficulties within your sector. We combine our senior networks and skilled research team to target relevant candidates locally and internationally which are best qualified for your role.
Attract and evaluate candidates
Once we have identified a relevant target map we will begin confidentially engaging and developing key relationships with candidates deemed suitable for your opportunity. Knowing your business, we will evaluate prospective candidates against what your needs are, what talent is currently available and what success looks like across your industry.
Present most qualified candidates
Once we have completed our best work for you, Accreate will subsequently present a strong slate of qualified candidates who are motivated and willing to drive your business forward.
