“CNA bring a fresh, dynamic new approach to the slow and stuffy world of recruitment and executive search. There are three distinctive features of the CNA approach that make them stand out from the crowd. The first is that they work hard to match opportunities, candidates and companies. This is not the case of an approximate automatic match between employers’ requisitions and stored profiles, this is done using brain power and entrepreneurial flair.
The second difference is the quality of selection. Each candidate must provide four peer references which are assiduously taken up, a far cry from the dry on-line sign up process that most companies offer.
And finally CNA remain in contact with you, working hard to place you in the right role. Establishing a positive relationship between candidate and recruiter enables CNA to place people accurately and reliably.” 2nd December 2010
CNA is definitely a head-hunter with a difference – as well as targeting specific companies for suitable talent, they insist upon potential candidates providing four peer references. In taking up these references even ahead of any engagement CNA are able to almost exponentially grow their database of high quality individuals at senior levels very rapidly and can then select the most appropriate candidate to put in front of their clients.
For client companies this makes them faster and more agile than many in their field with a conventional approach to candidate search.
From the candidate perspective this approach has definitely worked for me. I was seeing a potential employer within just a couple of weeks and although the first role appeared to be speculative, now known to the organisation I was in front of another divisional head the following week and started an interim engagement just ten days later – all in all less than a month from first contact to a job – not bad!
The CNA team have been in regular contact with both myself and the company that hired me since making sure everything is working out.” Steve Clark, Technology Consultant and Interim Manager. 17th Nov 2010
