Our purpose is to help clients achieve a competitive advantage through the recruitment of the world’s most talented business leaders.
A focused and proven search process, split into five key phases.
ASSESS ORGANIZATION AND POSITION
We work hard to build relationships with our clients (sometimes, even long before they become clients). We do this to understand your company’s culture and hiring needs. After speaking with you about a specific opportunity, we will use this information to develop a targeted search strategy, success profile, and position specification to fit your company’s needs and culture.
We are in touch with hundreds of new candidates and potential candidates every day making connections. In addition to this, we conduct extensive research to create a list of target prospects specifically for your search. We will not reuse old lists as other firms might do, because we believe each role is unique because every company’s culture is different. At the 20-day mark, we will prepare our Market Analysis Report to share our “long list” of interested candidates whom we think look most promising.
After working with you to winnow down our “long list” we jump on planes, trains, or in our cars to perform in-depth, in-person assessments of our top prospects. From there we recommend our short list of finalists, coordinate client interviews, and stay hands on with you and the candidates at every turn.
We will counsel with you in making finalist recommendations, and assist with structuring an offer to the final candidate. We also conduct comprehensive candidate background and reference checks.
FINAL NEGOTIATIONS AND CLOSING
We will mediate negotiations of the final offer between you and the final candidate. Ongoing follow-ups with client and successful candidate to assure an effective transition, paving the way for a smooth, successful execution and a long-term relationship.
Reilly Partners is committed to bringing science to the art of executive search by assuring that our client’s investment is the right and best investment. Our leadership assessment is an additional offering to the in person assessment. This process is designed to identify a candidate’s business and functional expertise, leadership abilities, marketplace and industry knowledge, character and cultural fit, and capacity to grow and change with the job.
