Search Services

Over the last few years, the competition for talent in Africa has been on the increase and this has led to challenges in filling key roles, both at executive or senior levels as well as at mid-management levels for most organizations. Yet, for organizations to succeed, they need the right people in the right roles and frustrations arise out of the time it takes to find good candidates and the growing cost of this talent. Corporate Moves Africa’s team of search consultants focuses on reducing the pain that our clients go through in seeking the best candidates for roles at different levels in their organizations and ensuring successful outcomes for the client in each search assignment.

Psychometric Assessments

Making hiring decisions are difficult as the negative impact of making a bad hire goes beyond the actual monetary cost. It can take months for an organization to recover from such a mistake.

To support the decision-making process and minimize the risk of making bad hires, we use psychometric assessments to provide an all-rounded view of the prospective finalist candidates. The assessments give us a scientific way of determining how well a candidate matches the role, fits the culture of the organization and what traits, drivers and values motivate the individual. Having this information on each candidate coupled with the interview evaluation process, the formal and informal references and other tools gives us more data and therefore, greater accuracy in making the best possible recruitment decisions.

We primarily use Hogan Assessments because, as a result of the decades of research into personality, Hogan knows how and why people behave the way they do. Their suite of talent acquisition solutions predicts workplace performance to a high degree of accuracy, providing unfailing insights into the prospective candidates. This gives us greater confidence in supporting our clients’ hiring decisions.
