Our client is a technology organisation who had undergone some strategic restructuring of the leadership team in response to growth. As a result of this, they required a new CEO to lead the business into the future and ultimately to an exit.
Ultimately the role has overall responsibility and leadership for a multi-million pound organisation. Candidates would need to be industry experts whilst retaining the entrepreneurial traits which are threaded through the clients company culture.
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 great feedback from the shareholders, the final candidates were selected for final interview and invited to complete a professionally administered occupational personality profile, benchmarked at 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.
