The Gold Standard Search Process

Our expertise is in the process of the professional search. We have conducted successful searches in senior operations, logistics, administration, human resources, marketing, engineering, information technology, sales, manufacturing, finance/accounting, quality assurance, and so on. We specialize in applying the proven Gold Standard Search Process outlined below to find excellent people.

Clear, Specific Job Specifications. Each assignment begins with an in-depth conversation with the appropriate members of your management team. This conference results in our knowing the candidate requirements so we can develop a complete set of specifications to ensure the “best fit” for you. Equally important, we will understand your work culture, business strategy, and management style. Additional information about your industry, community, products/services, and employee benefits help us to attract and recruit the top talent you need.

Customized Search. Because we realize that your organization is unique, our first step is to customize a search process based on your needs. By using this customized approach, we can deliver candidates who match your specific requirements and also who will blend with your current workforce and business climate.

Targeted Search. Knowing precisely what you want, we go into action. We have an exclusive internal database of qualified candidates in virtually every field, along with Internet recruiting capabilities and contacts in a wide variety of industries. We network with the people and organizations most likely to lead us to outstanding candidates – most of whom aren’t even on the job market. If appropriate, we target companies with world class practices in line with your philosophies – and then identify employees employed by them who are receptive to hearing about your opportunity. At all times, McNamara Search Associates uses ethical, confidential, and professional recruiting methods.

Thorough Interviewing and Assessment. Viable candidates are carefully interviewed experientially and behaviorally by telephone and/or in person. At your request, we will also facilitate on-site interviews and behavioral assessments. We always complete an in-depth reference check to determine the candidate’s on-the-job performance, work ethic, and accomplishments.

Quality, not Quantity. Our consultants have been hiring managers; we know how valuable your time is. Our goal is to identify the most qualified candidates while saving you time and money. That means that you will not be inundated with resumes. Only those candidates who meet your specific needs and criteria are presented to you.
