The Phoenix Recruiters Search Process

Initial client meeting
The Phoenix Recruiters will meet with the hiring client to outline search requirements, timelines and strategy and get an idea of the corporate culture. We will review the job description and discuss.

Deeper client analysis
The Phoenix Recruiters will then begin a more thorough analysis of the hiring company, identifying key roles and assets for the benefit of the candidates

Search strategy
The Phoenix Recruiters will begin an analysis of the market, outlining key companies they may wish to research for talent, and documenting all avenues that will be exploited in order to gain access to the top talent in the marketplace. Our research tools that form part of the search strategy will often include our own database, previously conducted market analysis, alternative internet sources such as social networks, and of course, our own network and contacts.

Name generation and candidate identification
Within our search strategy, the process of creating an industry/function wide map of talent and an extensive list of potential candidates is known as ‘name generation’ or ‘talent mapping’. After we have a number of high potential candidates listed, we will begin qualifying the potential targets and identifying whether they are suitable candidates.

Approach, qualify and interview to create a short list
The Phoenix Recruiters will conduct a series of internal meetings will continue throughout the candidate identification process and the number of potential candidates will be reduced to 5 at most. This shortlist is achieved through detailed interviews that discuss the specifics of the job, and explore the candidates’ background, competencies and interest in the role.

Basic referencing, present short list to the client
Before any candidate is presented to the client, The Phoenix Recruiters will complete basic background checking to verify their qualifications and career background. Provided there are no problems (modifications if there are) the shortlist will be presented to the client.

Narrow to 3-5, thorough referencing
Following meetings at the previous stage, the client will work with The Phoenix Recruiters to narrow the candidate shortlist to just 3-5 potential candidates. At this stage The Phoenix Recruiters will begin thorough reference checks, personality assessments and criminal background screening and provide final thoughts on strengths and weaknesses about each candidate.

Offer and negotiation 
After the hiring client conducts a series of interviews and consideration of external references, the client will select their preferred candidate and the process of salary and offer negotiation will commence. The Phoenix Recruiters can act as a mediator in this process to ensure both parties’ needs are being met or the client is welcome to control themselves.

Onboarding and integration
Finally The Phoenix Recruiters will assist with the integration (onboarding) of the successful candidate into the workplace – the degree of involvement varies depending on the wishes of HR and agreements made earlier in the search process.
