Service Options

Psychometric Profiling

Executive recruitment is focused on candidate experience and particularly in the Public and Social sector, the values alignment and positive behavioural traits of the candidate as well. ANSON has developed a psychometric assessment specifically for the Public and Social Sector enabling a very cost effective view of a candidate’s Values and Behavioural traits which we can provide for each shortlisted candidate presented. We can also utilise Extended DISC profiling or work with you and your preferred 'tool of choice'.

Team Profile Assessment

Leveraging ANSON’s psychometric assessment tools, we can provide key insights into the leadership team's behavioural dynamics and values alignment. This type of team analysis will identify areas of strong team cohesion and measure the level of alignment within the team towards desired values. Importantly in the context of Executive recruitment, it allows you to build a picture of what values and/or behavioural gaps exist within your team so you can recruit with this in mind. Shared values and their corresponding behaviours underpin team relationships and positive team work. Through our Team Profile Assessment, we can help you to better assess how a new Executive may or may not fit with the existing team dynamic.

ANSON is pleased to offer the backing of our recruitment process with an industry leading 24 month replacement guarantee for CEO appointments. If a candidate is deemed unsatisfactory or unsuitable for the position by you the client within the stated period, ANSON will replace the candidate. Enquire for full details.

Induction Pack Development

Our Consultants can work with you to develop a tailored Induction Pack that underpins a smooth, insightful, and effective transition for your new team member. We can help build a pack that includes elements such as a welcome letter, organisational overview, key roles and employees' names, your HR manual and so on.

Blind or Branded Advertising

ANSON generally recommend blind advertising so the identity of the organisation we are recruiting for remains confidential in the initial phases. This is specifically intended to attract enquiries from a broad candidate pool who are genuinely interested in the role and who are unable to form a view on the client organisation without further information. This enables us to speak to the candidate and ensure they are given a balanced, current and informed briefing on the organisation and the role whilst also allowing ANSON to ascertain the candidate’s potential suitability. There are certainly circumstances however where you may prefer the use of your company logo and details. ANSON is happy to work in either fashion.

Background Checks

If required, ANSON can undertake the preparation and management of background screening checks to confirm the preferred candidate’s qualifications as per their resume. ANSON will utilise the services of CV Check to conduct comprehensive screening. ANSON do not charge a margin for this service, it is simply passed on to the client at cost. We of course offer the usual practice of candidate reference checking as standard.

Position Description Development

An effective Executive requires an appropriately designed position description. ANSON is well qualified to assist in the review or development of a comprehensive and tailored Position Description. Our Human Resource consultants work with you to craft a precise and impactful position description that aligns with your organisation's unique goals and culture. By outlining details of the role, responsibilities and expectations with clarity, we ensure that your Executive is empowered to contribute effectively and is set up for success.

Remuneration & Job Evaluation

ANSON understands that a review of the compensation package for the role may not be required however our skill set in this area is available if required. Commonly however the CEO and/or Board is concerned about whether current remuneration for the executive management team is market competitive and recognises performance within the organisation. Often executives and/or CEOs haven’t received a remuneration review for at least a year or so, sometimes much longer. Sometimes some of the roles may have changed significantly since the appointment of the current incumbent and the remuneration may not have been adjusted to accommodate such changes. Organisations have usually grown over time, and this also gives cause for concern that remuneration for senior roles is competitive with similar roles in similar sized organisations. Of course, there can be many other reasons for looking at remuneration, these are just some examples.
