Our client is a private healthcare provider with a national footprint who were looking to expand their leadership team in response to growth.
As with any Director of Operations role, it is a critical one, however, in this particular case its strategic significance was heightened by the desire of the CEO for the successful candidate to be a potential Managing Director candidate in future.
Our team was headed by a Search Director with deep expertise in the industry. They were supported by an Assistant, Researcher, Interview Expert and Psychometric Profiling Practitioner.
CJPI’s Executive Search Consultancy combined active sourcing (headhunting) and an advertising selection strategy to identify potential candidates. The active sourcing approach focused on candidates from the sector who we had identified through our research phase, applying our deep understanding of the space. Our advertising strategy complemented this by attracting individuals from associated sectors or who met the criteria. As with all of our searches the process included professionally administered occupational personality profiling for all shortlisted candidates.
Following our longlisting and subsequent shortlisting, the final candidates were selected for final interview and invited to complete a professionally administered occupational personality profile, benchmarked against senior leaders.
Using all of the tools, together with our recommendations and the feedback from our occupational personality expert, the successful candidate was offered the role, and accepted.
