Preston Human Capital - Find an executive

Find an executive

As a business decision-maker,
in the know.

You know that your organization is only as effective as the people who lead it. You know that this role you’re trying to fill is critical and so you need to make a decision quickly. And you know that investing in an executive search firm—AKA headhunters—can reduce that margin of error to help you find a great fit.  

At Preston Human Capital Group,
we’re in the know, too.

We know that the only way to find the leader you're looking for is by having a deep and enthusiastic understanding of your business. We know how to make your search highly efficient and effective. And we know people - that is, many of the best and brightest minds in Canada.

So how do we find and place such great talent? Many years of successful executive searches have taught us that a combination of homework and hard work yields fantastic and sustainable results. Here’s a synthesis of our ten-step process:

  1. Understand your needs, culture and environment by conducting a job shadow at your location. Meet key relationships the successful candidate will need to foster. Get a ‘feel’ for the culture.

  2. Work with you closely to create a comprehensive position specification, a job description document that provides the foundation of the search.

  3. Conduct market research, networking and a database search to identify potential candidates.

  4. Assemble and present a long-list of candidate profiles. Often includes some discreet references on the individual in the job setting.

  5. Evaluate selected candidates for short-listing.

  6. Prepare short-listed candidates including profile for client interviews.

  7. Field client feedback and co-ordinate all required action to lead to final candidate identification.

  8. Conduct reference checks.

  9. Prepare and/or assist with client offer, mediate offer negotiation and close offer.

  10. Regular follow-up with both client and candidate.
