SmartSearch simultaneously sources talent regionally, nationally and internationally for any given search. In addition to widening the overall candidate pool, this approach allows us to attract internationally minded candidates who have valuable work experience abroad and may be interested in relocating for the right opportunity or to repatriate to their home country. In the face of globalization, these desired candidates often speak multiple languages, can navigate highly matrixed organizations, and understand industry best practices – but they can be overlooked by other search firms who rely on personal networks within a restricted location.
SmartSearch engages the highest quality candidates in the market. Recruitment firms have traditionally sold themselves on their ability to select candidates within their professional networks and existing databases – almost always within restricted geography, industry, or function. Technology and social media, combined with globalization, have revolutionized the way people interact and connect with one another, enabling a much more visible and accessible talent pool. This is especially true the higher you go in an organization as these individuals tend to have a larger digital footprint. SmartSearch specializes in using digital tools and technology to identify candidates and make it simple for them to connect with us. Our approach facilitates conversations between clients and candidates which they otherwise would not have had.
at your service
SmartSearch provides both candidates and clients with an experience centered around professionalism, integrity and trust. We are committed to providing our clients with personal service tailored to address their unique challenges and enable them to make better strategic decisions around talent. Our candidates are treated with the same level of service – that stresses confidentiality, honesty, as well as timely and constructive feedback to help them achieve their professional goals.
SmartSearch guarantees to present initial candidates who have been thoroughly screened and interviewed within ten days of engaging on a search. As we do not require candidates to meet us face-to-face, we are able to work around their busy schedules across multiple time zones resulting in a more dynamic and streamlined approach. This leads to faster feedback from our clients, an accelerated interview process, and a reduced time to hire.
zero financial risk
SmartSearch only charges a fee when we successfully place a candidate into our client’s organization. We do not charge any upfront retainer fees. We also offer a 12-month insurance period for any candidate who we place – removing the risk for a client to work with us.
SmartSearch prides itself on bringing our clients a diverse selection of talent – incorporating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion principles in every submission. In order to maximize company performance, it is imperative to engage with the entire workforce – prioritizing diversity of culture, gender, and ideas. Our approach to executive search widens the talent pool – and is more effective at engaging all candidates, many of whom have historically been excluded from more traditional recruitment networks.
