Filling executive positions

The process steps

Understanding the needs

BludauPartners consultants first work with clients to develop a comprehensive understanding of the corporate culture, strategic orientation, organizational integration and desired management skills. Focusing on these fundamental parameters enables us to fill vacant positions with precision. In addition, the responsible BludauPartners consultants draw up a relevant competency and requirements profile that is precisely tailored to the client's needs and finally approved by the client for the market. In addition, BludauPartners defines a target company list, which contains the companies in which the identification and initial approach of potential candidates is carried out.

Identifying and motivating the best people

Relevant candidates are identified within the Executive Search process through all available search channels. An important channel is the contact network of BludauPartners in the key industries, which has been built up over many years. An established base of trust enables good access to the candidates. Based on many years of experience, the Consultants of BludauPartners can motivate suitable executives who are hardly willing to change for the respective position - using a professional presentation of the company, the vacant position, a description of the opportunities and challenges as well as explanations regarding the corporate culture. In this context, the Consultants position themselves as objective advisors, enabling a credible recommendation of the respective company.

Checking the professional suitability

During a telephone interview, the initial professional and success-critical requirements are discussed and evaluated with the potential candidate. The questions are precisely tailored to the requirements (KPIs) defined with the client. Essential questions, needs, and expectations of the candidate concerning the vacant position are also clarified. Finally, the BludauPartners consultants request the candidate's documents and references to have an adequate information basis for the personal interviews.

Identifying the motives

After the telephone interview and a resume and document analysis, BludauPartners invites the candidates to a personal interview. In this exchange, the actual willingness to change, the motives, the requirements, and the expectations are discussed in detail. A joint decision is made regarding whether the candidate should be integrated into the application process. Furthermore, BludauPartners carries out a reference check, in which open and concealed references are collected from the last 3-5 years.

Assessing the match between personality, leadership understanding and the potential corporate culture

Since Executive Search at BludauPartners means tailored work, not only the professional skills of the candidates are checked before each new appointment, but also - in addition to the telephone and personal interviews - the leadership skills and the cultural fit with the respective organization. This provides companies with valuable decision-making aids for which candidates meet the individual requirement profile. The managers tested recognize their potential and are sensitized and motivated for their personal development.

The focus is not only on behavior-oriented questioning techniques, which shed light on the decisions and actions of the candidates in various critical situations. The personality is evaluated through advanced executive assessment modules, which complement the professional and technical skills regarding attitudes and values. The findings are summarized in an Executive Assessment Report.

The support for a consistent conclusion

After selecting a suitable candidate, BludauPartners professionally moderates the final process by presenting the person to their client - accompanied if desired. BludauPartners has a strong influence on the candidate's decision because they are present at the interview. Thus, together with the candidate, they can reflect on the overall process, and the discussions held and work out a joint decision.

In the following demanding phase of contract negotiations, BludauPartners' experts are always available to the candidates and clients with their expert knowledge and can responsibly support the staffing process by establishing a relationship of trust. They bring their background knowledge sensitively into the dialog and advise candidates and clients in a targeted and sustainable manner.

An investment in the future

After the position has been filled, the responsible Consultants will continue to support the candidates in their integration and in all further questions to ensure sustainably good cooperation.
