Specific Needs: Custom Solution

Shore & Associates has taken into consideration the changing landscape for recruiters and has addressed these changes by offering innovative, custom-tailored solutions to our clients.

We will find high-calibre candidates through our rigorous search methods and evaluation techniques. Before making any recommendations, we will take the time to identify your needs and key success factors within your organization. Your requirements will be taken into account during the search process, including management style, area of expertise and years of experience.

We then preselect promising candidates and conduct personal interviews to identify which ones merit further consideration. Your introduction to qualified candidates is supported with our interview impressions and in some cases, preliminary reference checks.

We have a large professional network and experience recruiting in various sectors such as sales, marketing, finance, accounting, human resources, technology, engineering and procurement.

With the same professionalism and commitment to results, our recruitment efforts can be unbundled and custom-tailored to meet your very specific (and sometimes more limited) needs. These services are budget-friendly and efficient, giving our clients a competitive advantage by using Shore & Associates expertise in:

  • Market mapping
  • Sourcing
  • Candidate screening
  • Candidate attraction.

Why Retained Search Is the Best Solution

Retained executive search consultants work under an exclusive contract with the client organization. This means that we will never present a candidate to more than one client at a time. This also means that while we build professional and ethical relationships with individual candidates, we do not accept fees from them for actively helping them find a job.

There are several benefits to working with a retained and exclusive search firm:

  • Access to the right resources: Through extensive research, we identify and solicit professionals who may not actively be seeking a new job but who match the client’s requirements and the company culture (“head-hunting”).
  • Timing and cost-effectiveness: Because we recommend only the top-qualified candidates, we minimize the time you need to spend reviewing resumes, interviewing candidates and evaluating candidacies.
  • Insight and judgment: Our team has a profound understanding of different industries and functions. We ask the right questions. We appreciate nuance and read between the lines. We recognize talent and understand what makes the right hire.
  • Accountability: We undertake the mandate only after ensuring that we can best add value in a cost-effective manner for you. We then make your search our priority, and our guarantee period ensures that we are accountable for our results.

Shore & Associates is a true leader in executive search, and we are recognized and respected by our peers. When you task us with finding your next CEO, manager, executive or vice-president, you can be confident that we will find the right person for the job.

Finding an Executive Who Meets Your Needs

Your company’s success rests on your ability to recruit qualified and efficient personnel who will successfully complete your projects and reach your goals. Your executive team should reflect your company values and possess the necessary expertise and experience to lead your company and its teams to the next level.

Qualities to Look for in an Executive

Regardless of the sector or level, a good executive must possess certain core qualities as well as the professional competencies for the position. Our discussion and evaluation of candidates incorporates discussion of their experience in demonstrating professional integrity and supporting an efficient, well managed and healthy work environment.

An executive must also demonstrate his or her capacity to develop strategy, transmit a vision and oversee project execution. Being able to anticipate the industry changes on a short, mid- to long-term basis is another important quality we bring into the discussion.

Shore & Associates has the experience required to identify these qualities in potential candidates. We believe that finding the ideal candidate is not only about résumés, it is also about appreciating one’s values.
