Our approach is to combine both contingency and search recruitment, providing the flexibility of a contingency recruitment service with the structured approach of a proactive search entity. We gain a complete appreciation and understanding of your: organisation and team culture; team structure; role profile; skills and experience profile; personality profile and recruitment strategy. We are then able to commence the search to identify, qualify, screen interview and present a specific shortlist of vetted candidates that match all aspects of the defined mandate. The Contingent Search would include the following processes:
- Database and existing network search
- Extensive website and offline advertising
- Industry conferences and recruitment fairs
- Proactive candidate approach
- Candidate referrals and market networking
- Candidate evaluation and profiling
We focus on identifying the highest calibre candidates in the market in the top 20 percentile of professionals within their chosen vertical market disciplines, by utilising: our proactive search methodology; market networking and candidate referrals. Our market maps are continually evolving and updated to allow us to pinpoint the most relevant talent of both active and passive candidates. We offer a variety of additional candidate services (please review our Candidates and Candidate Resources pages) and feedback has highlighted that these services combined with our proactive approach and latest market knowledge has attracted many candidates to develop a long standing relationship with GA Global. Our proven service and exceptional candidate relationships / care has resulted in the majority of our registered candidates using GA Global on an exclusive basis.
Our approach to each retained assignment is bespoke to each client’s needs. Firstly we will meet with you and discuss in detail the mandate of the role, your current business strategy and the desired candidate profile from a business, team, personality and cultural perspective. We determine the optimal search strategy and mutually agree timeframes together.
The GA Global team will utilise our constantly updated global talent maps to identify the most relevant and highest calibre passive candidates throughout Europe, USA, Middle East and Asia. We proactively approach these individuals, discreetly and appropriately to discuss their specific career expectations and the specifics of the position. We combine this targeted approach with extensive research across our established global network to benchmark candidates with current market levels. Candidates will be assessed against the client mandate and agreed personality profiling and assessments via telephone and face to face interviews and a shortlist will be developed. The client is presented with a market report, confidential assessment report and the shortlisted candidate details. Once client feedback is obtained we organise and manage the interview process in accordance with our client’s requirements. We review the leading candidates with our client and explore how the profile of each individual is aligned with key elements of the role and business. Following a successful interview process, we manage the closure of the assignment, working extremely closely and sensitively with both the client and candidate to manage the offer negotiations and subsequent resignation processes. We maintain close communication with the candidate throughout their notice period to ensure that momentum and motivation levels are maintained through to their start. Our results-oriented methods ensure that we always track the impact of our work, capturing reactions once a candidate is in the role, together with informative client feedback to ensure expectations have been successfully met. GA Global maintains a 100% track record of successful delivery on every retained search assignment that we have undertaken.

The majority of contract professionals that we work with have worked through GA Global on multiple back to back assignments and their skills have been proven and vetted with numerous references from past projects.

Talent mapping is a vital process to identify the key strengths and attributes of every individual within your organisation and where particular talent resides. GA Global provide talent mapping services as a strategic tool to identify talent intelligence in advance of any recruitment planning or organisational design changes.
GA Global will guide your organisation throughout the talent mapping process objectively charting every individual in a specific department or team within a company according to their skills, experience, motivations, education, competencies and capabilities. The results are displayed as a visual map of where each individual is positioned in terms of their talent (skills, attributes and capabilities) within the company. We quantify their existing talent and analyse their potential to add and deliver value to the business in the future. Skill gaps are identified and quantified; GA Global will provide options for training internal staff or recruiting externally. The continuous development and training of staff is integral to your future business, staff retention, business growth and achieving your organisational targets.
GA Global can also provide market talent maps to benchmark talent in specifically defined positions and establish the working conditions and remuneration that attract this talent to those businesses and retain them there. One way of being certain to identify the specific areas of development for each individual to deliver the most added value to your business is to introduce talent mapping. GA Global’s talent mapping process will ensure that your business can accurately plan a long term strategy to release the full potential in existing individuals and determine what talent will be needed to ensure future business success.
