Executive Search

1. Planning & Insight

Context Assessment
Following extensive consultation with the Client about needs, we develop a comprehensive understanding of the organisation, its business goals, culture as well as the specific requirements for the appoinment. The reasons why the job is attractive are also carefully analysed.

Context Brief
The objectives of the assignment are defined and an ideal Candidate profile developed. At the same time, Mashal Recruitment Group (MRG) creates communications materials that describe the opportunity and the organisation for potential candidates

Contextual Intelligence

Mashal Recruitment Group (MRG) Researches in local markets around the world conduct background analysis to support the Search. Using Mashal Recruitment Group’s (MRG) networked structure, they quickly gain additional insights and prespective to fast-changing markets and Candidate wants and needs.

Search Strategy

A specific Seach universe is drawn up and agreed with the  Client, often calling on the contextual experience and creativity of the Consultant. This is a critical step because it defines the direction of the search.

2. Management

Initial Contact

Potential Candidates are thoroughly screened, their qualifications examined, past performance verified, motivation and personality assessed and, where  appropriate, strengths and weaknesses appraised. Throughout the Search process, the Client is kept informed of progress and findings. A long list of qualified Candidates together with brief profiles is usually presented to the Client along with recommendations of those who best meet the specifications. Aside from comprehensive Candidate reports, market reaction is also constantly feedback to the Client.

Candidate Meetings

Candidates who meet the requirements of the Context Brief are brought forward. After each session, feedback is obtained from all parties and interest levels on both sides are carefully monitored.

3. Closure


Both the Client and the Candidate draw on our vast reservoir of knowledge in market compensation and benefits to discuss and structure a competitive and equitable package.


Where local laws allow, extensive and formal reference checks are undertaken to confirm Candidate career achievements.


After a successful Candidate has been appointed and begun their assignment, Mashal Recruitment Group (MRG) maintains an ongoing dialogue with both the Candidate and the Client to ensure a smooth integration and on-boarding, helping to assure the achievement of performance goals. At this stage, Mashal Recruitment Group (MRG) can also take on the communication of the new appointment to the press and inside the organisation, if required.
