What’s our search & shortlisting process?
Firstly we request you submit an introductory high level project brief online which upon receipt is followed up with a call or visitation from one of our concierge search experts to further understand and validate your marketing search needs.
Following initial briefing with you we then provide a quotation of the search fee applicable and once accepted proceed to set a selection criteria for a preliminary long-list of six potential ‘Best Fit’ providers.
The ‘Best Fit’ selection process we apply encompasses us undertaking a rigorous evaluation of each potential provider and rating them against our own proprietary 20 point check selection criteria.
Following confidential distribution of the initial project brief to our long list providers we then follow through and discuss with their respective account project managers their preliminary response and levels of interest with the objective of further qualifying down to a shortlist of 3 providers.
For basic search requests we then deliberate back to you the client, the shortlist, for you to make contact and prepare your detailed project brief and request for proposals from the short listed providers and progress matters through to final selection.
For search assignments where the clients have requested we assist them in preparing a project brief and co-ordinate the requests for proposals /or pitches we undertake this process on their behalf and this generally includes scheduling final short listed presentations and/or pitches as determined by the client in arriving at their final selection.
Before settling on your final selection we would always recommend a personal visit to at least two of the shortlisted business offices , to enable you to test in person their cultural and communication fit with your team
Naturally it is dependent upon breath of assignment and timeliness of supporting information being made available by members. Standard concierge requests are generally completed within 10 working days from instruction with basic being less than 5 working days.
