Successful Hiring Process

ProCapita Headhunter Indonesia is the leading Jakarta Executive Search Firm.

We have completed 1,000+ Executive Search Hires since 2014.

Our Headhunters are market leading C Level Recruiters.

ProCapita provides Old School Executive Search Recruitment Services.

We manually identify and then directly approach all relevant talent for each and every assignment.

Unlike Recruitment Agencies, We NEVER Use Online Job Ads.

Because they are Totally Inappropriate for any type of Senior Hiring.

Super cheap yes… but do they help you attract and secure the best of the best? No way.

That’s because Online Job Ads only target Active Job Seekers — people that are willing to spend hours a day looking online… for new jobs.

For any Senior Hire of Value, where a company must recruit the Best of the Best Executive Talent Possible and that person is very likely happily employed…

Online Job Ads Are Really Not Going To Help You!

On top of this, they are viewed as totally inappropriate at the senior level, seen as “incredibly tacky”… all they do is send top quality leadership talent running away and fast.

What you actually need is the help of a real McCoy Jakarta Executive Search Headhunter Firm, like ProCapita Headhunter Indonesia.

So What is Executive Search?

Executive Search describes the bespoke Recruitment Process that a company undertakes when it seeks to Identify, Excite and Secure its top tier leadership talent.

It typically refers to Executive Recruitment at the Board of Directors, C-Level or C-Level minus 1.

To get the best results possible, a company will use the services of a Specialist Executive Search Firm, like ProCapita Headhunter Indonesia, to help facilitate such a key hire.

That’s because Executive Search is Complicated!

After all, Executive Search is all about people – and very senior people at that.

Each person – both on the client side and on the candidate side – has their own personality, thoughts, emotions, priorities and decision making.

As a consequence, an Executive Search Process often involves A Lot of Uncertainty.

For a successful outcome, both the Company that is looking to make the hire and the Senior Candidate that is chosen, must come away happy.

Executive Search in Indonesia is even more challenging because the talent pool for Grade A Leadership Talent is still limited versus market size and demand.

Every company seeks to hire & is chasing the “same type of people” and – quite simply – demand outweighs supply.

On top of this, these elite professionals… tend to be far more expensive than hiring managers initially predict.

To secure top quality leadership talent in Indonesia a company must execute a High Quality, Efficient and Smooth Executive Search Recruitment Process. They must be Fast, Proactive and Confident.

As Jakarta’s top performing Executive Search Firm, our objective is clear: to find superior professionals for each and every client partner that we assist and to create long term hires.

Our Executive Search Recruiters work tirelessly to Identify, Excite and Secure game-changing candidates that possess all the magical ingredients needed.

Our Executive Search Process

“The secret of my success is that we have gone to exceptional lengths to hire the best people in the world.” Steve Jobs

A common misconception locally is that Executive Search Recruiters only care about the client. For ProCapita Headhunter Indonesia this is totally untrue.

Because to achieve success we know that “both sides of the coin” must be happy with the outcome.

A great quality hire only takes place when both the Client and the Executive Candidate that is hired come away satisfied. From this, an excellent long-term working partnership can develop.

Above all, the true sign of hiring success is when an executive candidate stays with a client business for years and years to come.

Similarly, a weak hire is where there is a mismatch between a client and the executive candidate that is hired. The relationship does not develop and lasts only a short period of time.

Our Success As Jakarta’s Leading Executive Search Company is Determined by the Quality and Longevity of the Hires that we Facilitate

When undertaking an Executive Search a company naturally wants to hire the very best talent possible.

At the same time top executives seek career growth, development and recognition for what they bring to the table.

At ProCapita Headhunter Indonesia we commence every Executive Search assignment with a Detailed Client Briefing. We establish what the “right person” looks like.

This is where we get “into the details” of what exactly is needed by our client partner. In other words, the “magical ingredients” that our client seeks in the ideal executive candidate.

This will cover the key skills needed, career experience required, background desired, education needed, personality type sought and etc.

The “wish-list” is often long! After all, if it was easy, a client would not need our help!

On top of this we ask for clarity on the salary budget for the position – or if things are being kept flexible.

If the budget is fixed, it is important that we know from the start so as not to waste anyone’s time… There is little point bringing forward senior professionals that are Not affordable.

It is essential that we understand fully our client’s needs from the get-go.
So that no time is wasted and the right type of talent is targeted from the beginning

With all this insight and knowledge about exactly what our client seeks, we start to identify all potentially relevant professionals.

We build our Candidate Longlist, consisting of all the people that we think could have the ingredients needed.

ProCapita Headhunter Indonesia is Research Led.

We Talent Map the Entire Market.

The candidate longlist can be extensive or relatively short. It depends entirely on the depth of talent pool that is available based on our clients briefing.

Once the longlist is built, we Professionally and Directly Reach Out to all Candidates.

ProCapita Headhunter Indonesia performs Traditional Direct Approach Only Executive Search Recruitment.

We Never use job board advertising to identify or gain candidate interest.

All of our consultants are highly experienced international Headhunters, very familiar with pitching senior level executives.

We will market our client and the job opportunity in the most effective manner possible.

It is only once we start interacting with executive candidates about our client opportunity that we will know if a person is indeed “spot-on” based on the briefing or not ideal.

99% of the candidates that we approach will be happily employed.
They are not actively job seeking

Such people are called “Passive Candidates“. We come along out of the blue, “knock on their door” and introduce our clients executive vacancy.

At this initial stage, candidates will usually be quite quick to say “yes, lets discuss further” or “no, i am sorry this opportunity is not for me”.

Either way is of course perfectly fine. The more honest the Candidate communication – the better.

If a particular role is not of interest, we will let the executive know about future roles that maybe of greater interest.

For instance, just because someone is not open to a new opportunity now, doesn’t mean that they won’t be open in 6 months time.

After we have started to communicate with executive candidates, our aim is to identify the most suitable based on our clients needs.

At this point we will start to Submit the CV’s of Qualified and Interested executive Candidates to our client.

Once we have started introducing candidate profiles to a client we will then facilitate each and every step in the recruitment process.

In general this means that we will manage the following items;

Co-ordination of all Client-Candidate interviews.

Once at an advanced stage, with a candidate identified as of high interest, we shall gather the persons detailed current compensation data and proof of such.

After that, based on our clients instructions, we shall handle offer and negotiation with the selected candidate. However, the client may alternatively choose to manage this themselves.

Once offer terms have been verbally accepted by a candidate, we shall perform Candidate Reference Checks and submit a formal reference report to our client.

Assuming that the reference checks are good, our client shall then issue the candidate with a formal written offer letter.

Once a candidate has signed the offer letter or employment agreement we shall support them throughout their resignation process.

We keep in touch during their notice period and until employment start date at our client.

What we can say for sure, is that each and every Executive Search assignment is unique and individual. Each hiring process poses its own challenges and complexities.

Our skill as experienced Executive Search Headhunters, having faced most situations many times over, is the ability to overcome each difficulty as it comes along.

We always look for solutions and work towards a successful close.

The length of time required for an Executive Search depends on the client. The availability of its leaders to interview, the urgency of the hire etc.

Alongside this, the seniority and circumstances of the selected candidate, the length of their notice period, can greatly impact things.

We would say that the average Executive Search process in Indonesia from start to finish, takes between 3-4 months.
This assumes that everything runs smoothly and efficiently on the Client Side!

We have worked on hires that took only 1 month to complete and for the candidate to start work immediately.

We have worked on hires that took over a year to complete and for the candidate to start work some months later due to their notice period.

In essence the timeline for the hiring process is driven by the client and candidate circumstances.

What we know for certain, is that the more inefficient an executive recruitment process is…

The longer that it takes a company to make decisions and progress things

>>> The chance of failure increases dramatically!<<<

Senior candidates simply get “turned off” and run away fast.

As Executive Search Headhunters we will always work to our clients instructions and introduce great talent in very short-order.

After that, all other aspects are in general outside of our control.

We always provide honest, independent 3rd party advice, to both Our clients and candidates throughout the Executive Search process.
