You are seeking a candidate with a rare combination of skills.
Finding a candidate with the perfect mix of experience entails understanding where these candidates are currently employed. They are unlikely to be sitting on a database.
Novello will provide you with a short list of five strong candidates, or a pre-agreed number, all of whom will closely match your requirements.
The benefit to you and your company based upon our research and in-depth screening, will mean only the strongest candidates in the marketplace will be presented to you, saving you time otherwise wasted interviewing irrelevant people.
You are looking to bolster the diversity of your leadership team.
We provide research into key skills sets currently in the marketplace that will complement the current and future challenges your business is likely to encounter.
The result is a stronger, diverse and robust senior leadership team. CEOs and CFOs who can take the business to the next level.
You have exhausted your own existing personal network.
Our network comprises both passive and active CEOs and CFOs. A passive candidate is someone who is not actively open to opportunities but for the right role will be motivated to move.
Utilising our network will add demonstrable value to your leadership team by attracting a candidate pool that is both relevant and broad. More often than not it is the passive CEOs and CFOs who are the best fit as we have proactively used our market intelligence to focus on the right person.
You have been working with another recruiter on a success only basis.
Success only makes sense for some roles but not for CEOs and CFOs who are of strategic importance. It lacks the depth and expertise behind it and the well-oiled back-end process that comes with using an established search firm. The success only model invariably falls short of a dedicated proactive search that has mapped the market and works to a clear road map.
Novello Search always completes on our mandates within a pre-agreed timeframe which will mean a guaranteed successful outcome and peace of mind for you and your business.
You need to hire a CEO or CFO with a sense of urgency.
Novello Search has a well-established network of strategic leaders. If they are not interested in an opportunity they will know someone who is. Executive Search is a contact sport and we are never more than three degrees of separation away from a potentially strong fit. We are also able to scale up our research in terms of staff working on each assignment to offer greater time-geared flexibility.
If time is of the essence, this means that we are able to execute to some of the tightest deadlines. Depending on your diaries, we can deliver a CEO or CFO to start with you within one month from being instructed. Our fastest completed search to date has been three weeks from signing terms to the CEO starting employment.
You would like to hire someone directly from your competition.
On occasion, your company may experience the same challenges one of your competitors has previously encountered and their leadership team may have delivered a successful outcome. Novello Search can tap into that talent. By making a discreet approach we can warm up the competition’s CEO or CFO to a potential meeting. As an intermediary, we will be privy to information that may create synergies and bring both parties closer together.
By aligning both parties and managing a sensitive process we are more likely to reach a successful conclusion then a direct approach would deliver.
This is a sensitive hire and a search needs to be discreet.
Novello Search has discretion hard wired into our DNA. Indeed, many of our mandates involve legacy issues that need handling with a delicate pair of hands. Ahead of going to market we agree our approach and pitch with all of our clients. Much of our work is undertaken after signing an NDA.
Our approach will avoid any unnecessary legal complications and court fees that can arise.
You are planning an exit and looking for someone who can set the road map and introduce their network.
Exit planning is a serious business and can sometimes take years to put in place. Novello Search is particularly strong when it comes to individuals who have prior experience of a wide range of exits, M&A, MBIs, MBOs and IPOs.
We will put you in touch with people who not only have the right black book of contacts but are also able to get you the best possible ratios and exit terms
You need to fund raise.
Fund raising is a specialist subject and will require a CEO or CFO who is well networked, can make calls and is fully rehearsed in the art. Novello Search recognises that the skills required for fund raising are quite unique and good fund raisers are short in supply and high in demand
We ourselves have developed a black book of fund raisers, many of whom are immediately available. By contacting us you will have immediate access to this expertise and can benefit from a successful debt or equity raise that doesn’t have to cost you too dearly.
Novello Search recruits both permanent and interim CEO’s across a multitude of sectors. We have invested many years building our network of clients and candidates resulting in some of the most interesting mandates and strongest pipeline of candidates out there.
Our portfolio of clients ranges from PE Funds and their assets; later stage VC backed companies; family run firms; other investor-backed businesses to stand alone corporates in a range of sectors. Both our clients and candidates are fully assessed and qualified before introducing them to you.
