The Interim Executive Search Process
Odgers Berndtson’s Interim Executive Practice provides Canada’s largest, pre-vetted roster of candidates. We have relationships with hundreds of highly qualified, experienced leaders who understand the advantages of interim assignments.
Our client commitment to deliver exceptional candidates in five business days is possible because we actively maintain relationships with all our interim executives while our team of consultants research and identify new, highly skilled talent.
The result is candidates with the situational expertise and experience to deliver results.
Interim candidate development.
As a market leader in Interim Executive Search and Interim Management, we continuously meet with and assess candidates. The best candidates thrive in ambiguity, think strategically, demonstrate decisiveness, and excel at managing stakeholder relations – that’s what all our candidates are evaluated for in addition to a thorough vetting of their experience and professional credentials.
Develop and uncover our client’s need.
We take the time upfront to understand your business and the situation behind the challenge, then we use that data to define what would be required for the placement to be successful.
Benchmark candidates and validate our understanding of the assignment.
We will conduct an efficient, yet thorough review of the best available interim talent to meet your requirement. This will include a detailed benchmarking process to validate our understanding of the assignment and maximize the value of the search process.
Interview candidates and further refine the assignment requirements.
We will facilitate interviews, feedback, and discussion around the requirements of the assignment to meet the needs of your business challenge. This data can also be used to facilitate an efficient pre-onboarding experience between client, candidates, and Odgers Interim.
Confirm the assignment.
Once you have consensus on a final interim candidate, Odgers Interim will negotiate the terms of the assignment to secure the candidate and facilitate a seamless onboarding experience.
Ensure continued success with regular touch bases.
We’ll regularly check in with both you and your candidate to make sure your project is on track and that you are pleased with how your new interim leader is progressing.
“Out of four candidates presented to us by search firms, the top two we chose were from Odgers Interim. Our interim CFO was bang-on the right person for the job, and the entire process went much quicker than if we had done our own internal search.”
