A time-proven process for crucial decisions
Going Beyond the Brief
We bring our years of experience to every mandate. Once we receive the brief, we consult with the client to understand their unique needs. When hiring senior professionals, we follow a 360 degree approach — analysing the requirement from a business perspective, and focusing on key aspects such as revenue, key clients, and relationships. The evaluation of the business case gives us a strong foundation to ensure we get the right people in key positions.
Begin the Search
We map the criteria based on the clients needs. We then begin tapping into our extensive database of pre-qualified professionals and headhunt, if required.
Vetting and Evaluation
The Vahura network of professionals is leveraged to conduct exhaustive background and reputational checks. We conduct one-on-one meetings with candidates to ensure the right fit both from a skill and cultural alignment perspective.
Only after this thorough assessment do we present our recommendations to the client.
Our engagement doesn’t end here. We continue to assist our clients till the last mile with offer management.
