Our Executive Services

Hays Executive provides services in a modular approach, recommending only those that most effectively meet our clients’ specific needs. Here is a summary of our key services:

Benchmarking: Our understanding of market trends in salaries and team structures can help you to pitch your vacancy at the right level

Internal assessment: Use our expertise to assess internal staff for redeployment, training and development or to confirm your decision for a substantive post

Competency framework development: Many organisations have worked with us to develop frameworks that accurately reflect the needs of both the job and the organisation in terms of skills, experience, values and behaviours

Job description development: We are often called on to redesign job descriptions to reflect changing requirements or to attract a different candidate pool. Our library of application materials can provide invaluable suggestions on composition and content

Interim management: We can provide a proven expert to fill a vacant role until you find a permanent appointment. All interims are thoroughly vetted and gave undergone competency interviews with our experienced consultants; all qualifications and multiple references will have also been checked thoroughly

Executive search: Some organisations use our executive search offering as a ‘bolt-on’ to their own HR processes rather than outsourcing their entire recruitment function. Whether you are targeting specific organisations or encouraging interest from candidates beyond your core sector, executive search can make the difference between recruitment success and failure. More than 80% of the appointments made by Hays Executive originate from a direct approach by our team

Advertising and response management: Costly and time-consuming when managed ineffectively, traditional advertising still has a valuable role to play when procured and monitored to best value principles. Hays Executive secures market-leading discounts on national and specialist media, including online channels, whilst maximising the conversion ratio from interest to application and providing out-of-hours availability for applicant enquiries

Online brand development: Our Digital & Creative team are experts in developing and using innovative digital recruiting products, creative services and social media strategies. From the design of bespoke ‘microsites’ to web optimisation techniques, we ensure prime positioning across the web for your requirements

Selection process: Entirely bespoke to your requirements, we can design selection processes covering initial sifting, long-list competency-based interviews and online methods

Assessment centre management: Our expert Assessment Team will support your selection process through the design and delivery of candidate assessments that support your needs. In addition, technical assessors with longstanding and successful careers in comparable roles can be provided to assess sector-specific skills in areas such as finance and IT

Final interview process: Our expert consultants are available to facilitate successful final interviews, including composition of interview questions and presentation topic design as well as provision of an appropriate venue and coordination on the day

Offer management: Working closely with your HR experts in managing the offer process from negotiation of terms to taking references and confirming the appointment

Executive coaching: Statistically, the most common time for an executive to leave their position is in the first 100 days of employment. By using an experienced coaching professional, appointees are able to be embedded more quickly into an organisation and to add significantly more value from an early stage.
