Collin Crawford Consultant is among the longer established Executive Search Consultancy firms in Singapore. Collin Crawford Consultant was founded in August 1996 (formerly known as Sammy Crawford Consultant in 1982). Our client base ranges through manufacturing, communication, semi-conductor, software and in sectors such as information technology, nano research & development, oil & gas and coal & mineral mining companies.
Our deliberate policy of having only limited number of clients in each industry segment has led to not only our genuine ability to source from a wide range of companies in each sector but also a high degree of repeat business.
Our Recruitment Process
We tailor our recruitment process to your specific needs and follow a high level of professional discipline and diligence as required for the successful completion of every assignment. We identify executives based on the level of seniority of the position and the number of people in the specific field of expertise who could fit your requirement.
We would recommend Executive Search for positions which are:
- very senior, requiring a high degree of confidentiality
- highly specialized, requiring someone from a specific industry sector or from a precise field of expertise
- difficult to fill in view of the limited number of qualified candidates who could match your requirements
An advertising-based approach is the fastest and most cost-effective means of attracting a large number suitable candidates when:
- the candidates for the position could come from different backgrounds, industries or levels of seniority
- the positions are for middle to junior level executives
- the number of available candidates in market is large
- the advertisement is well-presented and well-placed in the right media by a reputable consultancy firm or company.
When we use advertising, either as an approach or as a supplement to executive search, our advertisements enjoy a visible, priority location at no extra cost.
Assessment of Candidates
Our rigorous interview process is supplemented by an appropriate psychometric exercise which we conduct to understand deeper the candidates’ leadership styles, work values, social and other personal traits. (The candidates’ profile you provide us during our initial discussions with you.) As a separate assignment, we can also provide you with an unbiased second opinion on candidates already identified by you.
Should the appointee leave on his or her own accord or is found unsatisfactory within three months of appointment, we shall seek a suitable replacement at no extra consulting fee. However, any expense incurred on your behalf will be charged at cost.
