Mindset Search


Hiring the right senior talent is critical to achieving your business plans and the cost getting it wrong is frightening.

But how do you get it right first time?

You know what you want to achieve with the hire and you create a job spec that outlines the skills and experience you need, but what about character and culture fit, isn’t that important too?

Workplace research tells us when new hires fail, 89% of the time it is down to attitude and only 11% of the time because of a lack of skills.

Put simply candidate Mindset matters. That's why we created Mindset Search and developed our online selection portal,

We are expert headhunters that look beyond what candidates “can do” highlighted by their skills and experience and explore what they “will do” by uncovering the attitude, temperament and self-motivation of the senior talent we shortlist.

Mindset Search’s combination of advanced technology and cutting-edge methodology produces, in-depth candidate assessment that reveals candidate mindsets, reducing guess work, streamlining the recruitment process, and improving new employee retention.

Here’s how….

Clients use our job profiler tool to establish the behaviours they believe are important for the role. This combined with a job specification creates a strong benchmark of the “what good looks like” and it’s this target that we headhunt and assess against.

Shortlisted candidates also access the portal, to answer tailored competency based questions, upload an elevator pitch video, and complete a behavioural assessment.

This detailed process allows comparison of your shortlist candidates against each other and your benchmark, visually on a range of important criteria. You also get detailed advice on each candidate such as specific questions to ask at interview and how they like to be managed, helping you make the right decision for your business.
