Reducing Client Fees While Increasing Quality

Our strategy is simple, to remain specialized and focused on our chosen business sectors, reduce and protect our client's recruitment investment while shortening the time to hire with the placement of exceptional candidates.

By maintaining our specialist market focus and avoiding the pitfalls of a generalist approach we are able to better serve our client's distinctive needs. Cayman Group does not try to be everything to everyone.  Our strategy is simple, to remain specialized and focused and in-turn provide a superior level of quality and service to both our clients and candidates.  

In Close Partnership With Clients

Our consultative approach can help guide your decision-making as you seek to build, grow or transform your business. At Cayman Group, we take time to meet with you and your team at the outset of an assignment so we can develop a complete understanding of your vision, your needs and, most importantly, your culture.

Operating With Integrity At All Times

We hold ourselves to the highest standards of quality and integrity and are committed to providing an outstanding level of service, no matter how complicated or challenging the brief. We never cut corners and are fully transparent in our methodology and practices. Most importantly, we are committed to keeping our clients fully informed of our progress, including setbacks and successes, as we complete the assignment.

Our business is truly client-driven and we are committed to understanding your true business needs, and to helping you source the talent you need to quickly add expertise and expand your services.

A New Approach To Pricing  

Cayman Group has evolved into a hybrid Executive Search and Recruitment company, combining the best parts of in-house and agency recruiting.  We understand that no two companies are the same, and every talent challenge is different. Whatever your specific talent needs, Cayman Group will customize a plan to ensure we find exceptional individuals to solve your hiring needs. 

Capped Fees  

Capping our fees allows our clients to very easily budget for their recruitment spend each year as they know regardless of how many hires they make within a 12 month period, their costs will never exceed an agreed figure.  Anything under the agreed figure, then we charge a percentage of the placed candidate(s) first years 'base' salary to ensure our client's costs are kept down.  We also offer a unique 'subscription' based service. Contact us to learn more about our unique pricing structure.

Guarantees

We're fully committed to protecting our client's recruitment investment by offering very competitive replacement terms.  Rarely have we had to replace a candidate we've placed but exceptional candidate's are often targeted and presented with some great opportunities by executive search and recruitment companies as well as hiring firms directly.

Partnership

Everything we do is geared around developing long term partnerships.  We partner with our clients to develop comprehensive recruiting strategies that are tailored to their specific needs and search requirements.  We work with our clients very closely, as an extension of their own company so that we can learn everything we need to know to ensure that we're able to attract and retain exceptional candidates both quickly and effectively. 

To ensure the highest levels of service to each of our valued clients, we are selective about the firms we work with and the searches we chose to take on.  Our commitment to quality and integrity extends to our candidates, we strive to always be responsive and attentive to candidates and their needs.

Consultative Approach

Cayman Group employs a unique methodology for completing market analysis and screening candidates. Below is an outline of our search methodology, which we employ consistently throughout each engagement to ensure a high level of ethical standards.

Engagement & Commencement

We immediately bring together a team of consultants to establish an initial search strategy, including the target regions and companies (competitors, disruptors and/or outside industry), and the search criteria. We review and confirm the specifications of the role, including required skills, responsibilities, reporting and more. We then carry out any initial research required to better understand the assignment and current market conditions.

Project Definition

Next, we’ll meet or speak with the client to review our proposed search strategy as well as the findings of our research. This is often a working meeting and we use this time to review, refine and agree on our search strategy, the position specification and target/benchmark candidates. At the end, we’ll have full client agreement and approval of our strategy.

Initial Research

We’ll again meet or speak with the client to present and review our initial findings from the search. This will include a list of our 20 primary target candidates as well as our point-of-view of their abilities and fit. We’ll also present to the client new intelligence gathered through our outreach and research, including overall market perception of the position and the client organization.

Assessment & Shortlist

By this point in the assignment, our team will have at minimum interviewed and appraised all primary candidates for the position and spoken with at least 75% of targeted research on these candidates. We will present a short-list of candidates as well as our assessments of their knowledge and fit for the organization (based on the approved search criteria).

Quality Review

At this point, we will meet or speak with the client to review and/or adjust our search and selection criteria as we narrow down final candidates. This meeting or call will also cover findings from our most recent round of interviews and assessments and highlight which candidate/s that should be brought in for final review.

Completion & Onboarding

In the last stage of the search, our team carries out formal referencing and credential checks of the final candidate/s, identified a successful hire, coached the finalist through the offer negotiations, and settled on a timeline for his or her start. We’ll then conduct a review of the process with the client.
