Each CNA Executive Search (Social Media) retained or contingency assignment begins with an initial briefing from the client during which the key parameters of the social media search are agreed and documented. Consultants then carry out an assignment study which can involve visiting the client’s offices and meeting with key executives to discuss the business environment, culture, priorities and any other issues that may affect the position.
CNA Executive Search (Social Media) draft and submit a position and candidate specification for the client to approve for each assignment. The document describes in detail the company, the role, responsibilities, goals and key challenges of the position. It also summarizes the experience, qualifications and competencies required for success.
These key competencies (a unique combination of proven skills, knowledge, abilities and attitudes) enable the CNA Executive Search (Social Media) Consultant’s to assess potential candidates throughout the search process.
Having defined the key selection criteria with the client, CNA Executive Search (Social Media) undertake targeted research into companies to find social media specialists best qualified for the role. Using our proprietary database and personal contacts we speak to sources familiar with those companies to seek informal views and opinions on individuals we believe may be relevant and qualified.
On the basis of our research, CNA Executive Search (Social Media) approach potential candidates on an informed basis. Once we determine that an individual is both qualified and interested in the role, we undertake extensive evaluation utilising our trade marked CABS methodology.
Before presenting any candidate to the client, we conduct a rigorous competency-based interview. Each candidate is assessed and validated against the position specification.
CNA Executive Search (Social Media) obtain external views on each candidate via telephone conversations with peer referees before introducing him or her to the client, in order to confirm and enhance our knowledge of the candidate’s achievements and track record. We also seek verification of each candidate’s academic qualifications.
When an offer is made to a candidate, our consultants are available to participate in any negotiations. Unsuccessful candidates are promptly and courteously informed.
Following each retained assignment CNA Executive Search (Social Media) actively seek feedback from our clients, identifying any issues from which we can learn in order to improve the quality of our service in the future.
We retain an interest in the people we have helped to recruit well after they have taken up their new positions, often by following up on-boarding interviews and undertaking 3 month reviews.
