Executive Recruitment that Maximises Performance

 

We believe that every employer is different. Your culture, traditions and processes are unique. Finding the right Senior Executive for your organisation isn’t about finding a Candidate that dazzled in another organisation. It is about finding a candidate who will be a top performer in yours.

We work across all industries, with a particular focus on; health, government, member services, professional services, recruitment, electrical distribution & engineering.

We recruit at CEO, CFO, COO, CIO, GM and Executive Director levels.

01

Starting with your unique needs

A candidate can be an exceptional performer but a poor fit for your unique company. Chandler Executive starts forensically with your organisation and the job role.

02

Tried and tested methods

We map the behavioural competencies necessary for high performance in your unique business environment. This is a major focus of our successful process, and the part that our clients appreciate makes the difference.

03

Over 65 years of combined success

Our consultants blend an understanding of commercial imperatives with measurement of key behaviours in candidates to ensure a strong match with job competencies.

About

So many companies talk about the importance of people and then fail to act humanly or humanely when it comes to recruitment. From rude and underqualified recruiters who burn through great candidates to employers with unrealistic expectations. It just results in candidates being recruited for the wrong roles and under-performance being more prevalent than it should be.

We know how to find the right candidate for you.

With over 65 years of combined success in the HR, recruitment and management consulting fields, our attitude, methods and results are tried and tested. We know that companies and candidates are unique, individual and colourful, and we are grateful for that because it makes our job much more interesting.

There is so much talent among senior executive candidates that get overlooked because cookie cutter methods and production line attitudes result in poor job matches, which are good for nobody, and we simply choose not to work like that.

Our approach is scientific, to begin with, identifying the employer’s real business needs and decoding the ‘candidate wishlist‘ that often gets in the way of finding the perfect person for the job. Our search and assessment methods deliver an excellent technical match. Then the people part really comes to life.

We currently provide services to several public and private sector entities, with several of Australia’s leading corporate organisations relying on Chandler Executive’s advice and guidance to inform organisational strategy.

Executive Recruitment With Mutual Respect

We believe that a people business should be human and lead with integrity.

Predicting Behaviour

Our consultants blend an understanding of commercial imperatives with measuring key candidate behaviours to ensure a strong match with job competencies. This is used in search, succession planning and organisational development projects.

Chandler Executive has developed strong relationships with various research service providers who possess particular skills in certain geographies, sectors, roles and research methodologies. These providers are based across Australia and South East Asia and have a global reach.

Methodology


Intelligence for smart business

We help you face the realities of your unique organisation and what your business really needs.

Our initial research processes to uncover the competencies required for the role in your unique business environment make us more effective than other recruiters. We take the guesswork out of Executive Recruitment.

Find out how we could help you find the right Senior Executive to help you grow.

A candidate can be an exceptional performer but a poor fit for your unique company.

As an employer, you are different. Your culture, traditions and processes are unique. The perfect CEO or COO for your business is different from another business.

We start with your organisation, and then we source matching candidates.

We map the behavioural competencies necessary for high performance for the role in your unique business environment. This is a major focus of our successful process, and the part our clients appreciate makes the difference.

Lead Consultant

Nick Chandler

Nick has spent over 17 years in management consulting, organisational development and executive recruitment.

 

Nick is often engaged when an organisation is going through significant change, establishing key metrics for high performance, benchmarking these through assessment and sourcing appropriate individuals to fit the organisation’s culture and value system.

Nick’s approach involves understanding the outcomes required of an individual in a senior role and how to attract a high performer to fit those requirements.

Blending this with the organisation’s culture and the particular teams they are managing is critical in ensuring the best possible fit between the individual and the business.

Graduating from the University of New South Wales in Social Science, Nick’s structured background in research helps to construct a valid and reliable end-to-end selection methodology.

He has managed executive search assignments at CEO, CFO, CIO, COO, GM, Executive and Non-Executive Director levels.

To talk through your requirements, you can email Nick Chandler directly or call +61 407 008 784.

Chandler Executive takes the guesswork out of your next hire.

Hiring senior executives are one of your most important strategic decisions, and making the wrong choice can impact the business dramatically. As an employer, you are unique. Your culture, traditions and processes are unique. The perfect CTO or CFO for your business is different from another company.

We recognise that no matter how great a new hire seems, they can still be wrong for the role.

Traditional Executive Search processes focus on the candidate but rarely challenge the client’s view of the job role or apply rigorous techniques to define the required competencies.

Chandler Executive starts with your unique requirements:

We map the behavioural competencies necessary for high performance in your business environment. This is a major focus of our successful process, and the part our clients appreciate makes the difference.

We then source, assess and map candidates using the same competency framework to get a scientifically rigorous fit for the role.

After the science comes to the art. Because we find the best role fit first, you can focus on the candidate finalist who ‘feels’ right for the business, knowing they are already perfect for the role.

Why didn’t ya call?

Time and time again, I am told that recruiters are terrible at calling people back. Candidates tell me that other recruiters let them know they’ll call them, and then they hear nothing. For months. Even years! It’s appalling. And it has to stop. Candidates are an...
