Our intake is essential to the success of every search and allows us to go deep and gather information far beyond job descriptions and salary requirements. We spend time with all of the hiring decision makers (senior leadership, boards of directors and hiring managers) to understand the scope of the position and organizational goals. Armed with that information, we confidently represent our clients’ employment brands with passion and integrity.
During a search intake, we’ll discuss the following and more:
- Market position and message development
- Organization structure
- Corporate culture
- Value propositions
Establish a highly-targeted recruiting strategy
Our recruiting team is briefed on the specifics of the search and we use the information gathered during the search intake to develop a strategy that is unique to your needs and ensures we’ll target candidates who are top-tier professionals and have the best technical and leadership skills for the role.
Identify and target potential candidates
Allegro Group initially identifies professionals based on peer reviews and our own targeted research. We then engage these individuals directly and begin a conversation. Our approach ensures that we build relationships with professionals that are open to advancement and change before we discuss specific opportunities.
Interview and qualify candidates
Our job is to find in-demand professionals you wouldn’t otherwise have access to. We initially spend 2-4 hours evaluating candidates’ hard and soft skills and getting to know them through phone calls, meetings and a formal interview process. After the initial period, we continue to communicate and work hard to build a strong relationship by understanding the progression of their career, scope of current and past roles and criteria for an advancement opportunity. We continually evaluate industry/technical skills, leadership ability, business acumen, character, personality and values.
Present finalists to client
Allegro Group will narrow the list of professionals we have interviewed and qualified based on the search criteria, feedback from your team and our recommendations. We will continue to communicate with and evaluate the top candidates as we showcase their engagement, experience, hard and soft skills, personal goals and more.
Manage the client/candidate interview process
Allegro Group coordinates all aspects of the interview process. We prep both parties to eliminate surprises, drive productive conversations and maximize the process. Following interviews, we also do thorough debriefings with the client and candidate.
Present and close offer to top candidate
We partner with clients to ensure offers are competitive and will meet the expectations of the client and candidate, which minimizes negotiation. Allegro Group presents all components of an offer including title, salary, bonus, relocation assistance, benefits and timelines. We work directly with the client to get a signed offer acceptance and create a smooth transition. We also assist candidates with their resignations by coaching them on how to give notice and avoid counteroffers.
Post-hire follow up
Just because an offer has been accepted doesn’t mean our job is done. We stay connected to the candidate and employer throughout the transition and also follow up after the new employee is on board.
