WE DELIVER PINPOINT CANDIDATE RELEVANCE BY MATCHING:

  • Required candidate skills, abilities & competencies.

We provide you with a comprehensive overview of current and rising executives in specific roles and specific markets.

Our Talent Map will exhibit the profiles of skill sets currently performing the required function in target organisations in targeted markets. We will include candidates who could effectively be promoted into the envisaged role. This assists clients in identifying possible future resourcing moves and can save the client extensive resources in future recruitment processes especially during a client's growth and expansion into new markets.

There are occasions where direct headhunting does not suit client requirements. In these instances Talent Maps are effective for the client in visualising an ‘external succession talent pipeline’.

Losing this skill in cases where the employee was a rising star within the organization is even more costly.
