OUR SERVICES

We strive to be the best rather than the biggest.

We focus only on CEO, Non Executive Director and executive level appointments and we do it well because executive search is Hobson Leavy’s only business.

Finding the very best people for your business is a difficult task. They need to fit with your business culture and ethos. They need the right skills to deliver on your business strategy and the vision to identify your future goals. To ensure we provide you with the very best talent available, we retain a single-minded focus on executive search rather than trying to sell you additional services.

EXECUTIVE
SEARCH

Executive Search aims to identify the best possible candidate for a role, not simply the best candidate currently on the market. As such it is a process normally applied to executive positions. Each search strategy is tailored to you, addressing the specific needs of the assignment and researching and assessing the entire market of potential candidates for the role. Our unique process is exhaustive and complete.

We combine this exacting approach with speed and the need to maintain momentum. As the process reaches conclusion, we remain closely involved to ensure the successful conclusion of the assignment.

Our emphasis is always on outcome: have we added value and delivered a solution? We provide unmatched client service and retain our clients as long-term business partners because we deliver a quality experience.

NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SEARCH

The future success of this country depends in large measure on the performance of the corporate sector, which in turn is dependant on the quality of corporate boards. Typically these roles are recycled amongst the same Directors with the apology offered that there are no other suitable candidates.

At Hobson Leavy we beg to differ. We believe there resides a considerable talent pool at a senior level in New Zealand that goes un-tapped, perhaps because it is a little harder to find.

We works with Chairpersons or Board Committees to find either single or multiple non-executive directors.

TALENT BENCHMARKING

Successful leaders know that having the highest quality team is essential, yet how do you know if you have the best possible team? You may have inherited some team members, or worked with others so long you have lost your objectivity as to their relative strengths and weaknesses compared to others in the market.

This is where Hobson Leavy can help. Our talent benchmarking service draws on our core competencies of interviewing and assessment, coupled with our up-to-the-minute market knowledge to assess and report on executives, either individually or as a team.

At the conclusion of the process you will know the strengths and weaknesses of your team, relative to the market. This information can then be used to make decisions around executive development, succession planning, performance management and future recruitment.
