In the battle for talent, companies want to be able to speak to people who know their business and market, there is no time to educate search consultants.
All of our senior consultants have covered executive positions or managerial roles before joining Kilpatrick Aviation, so they understand all concerns and are aware of global challenges.
The Ideal Candidate
We love to sit down with you and understand the insights of your company and the management team. We want to work with you to define the ideal candidate’s competencies, personality traits, and their behavioral characteristics.
We will discuss with you about “what you want” versus “what you really need”.
Once we have assessed and defined your needs, our Senior Consultants personally engage and share the opportunity with their local and global relationships – to identify candidates prepared to meet your needs.
Our Senior Consultants are also supported by a dedicated team of researchers who simultaneously run your requirements through relevant markets, both online and offline, and most importantly through OneApp – our proprietary system that tracks top executives and senior professionals worldwide.
Our Senior Consultants personally approach the most-qualified candidates. We are marketers, and the best way to persuade the majority of the senior candidates is to share the opportunity or get connected sharing the contacts.
We take part to the most important aviation industry events across the globe, where we have the chance to network with industry leaders and decision makers.
The Interview Process
All of our Senior Consultants conduct their interviews in person, making sure we match the goals as set with the client.
We consider all of our candidates equally important and even though we need to evaluate our candidate’s full range of capabilities, personal tendencies, behavioral characteristics, insights into their expected performance in the targeted leadership role, we make sure all have a great “Search Experience”.
The First 100 Days
Once we have defined the most suitable candidate for the role, we will carefully manage his/her exit from their current company, making sure that all goes according to the schedule. At the same, time we are in continuous contact with other shortlisted candidates, managing their expectations and, above all, to keep them connected as potential employees of your company.
We start supporting the Executives well before D-Day in their new role, as soon as the appointment decision is made.
We work in close collaboration with you, your HR Department and/or the Management Team, we craft a plan so they to hit the ground running.
