TPR requires an executive search provider to assist in the appointment of a Finance Director.
Through the use of a full search approach, the primary deliverable is a short-list of candidates agreed with TPR (such candidates having had preliminary interviews with the Service Provider).
The executive search provider will work with the Regulator to provide an effective recruitment strategy, plan, costing and schedule to ensure that TPR is able to appoint a successful candidate. Once the approach has been agreed by TPR, the provider would then deliver the appropriate search. They should provide details of all initial applicants so that TPR can be involved in the initial sift, and on TPR’s instruction carry out preliminary interviews with those selected in the sift. The findings from the preliminary interviews would help inform TPR’s shortlist. There may also be an additional stage for reference collection and some form of appropriate assessment. Working with the provider, TPR would carry out the final panel interviews to select the successful candidate. The provider would manage all candidate handling.
Approaches are likely to include all or some of the following:
— Full Search;
— Advert;
— Response Handling;
— Sifting;
— Preliminary Interviews;
— Psychometric assessments.
The Regulator is looking for fully qualified finance Director with excellent commercial and business experience gained in either private or public sector.
TPR would like the successful candidate to start in the Autumn of 2014 so will be looking to start the selection process as soon as possible.
