Ensuring the Best for Entrust Energy General Manager
The Manhattan Resources team brings years of expertise and a time-tested recruiting process to find talent with the perfect combination of skills, experience, and cultural background to fit the strategic role.
The company’s process starts before the search, by spending time with its new clients in their environment and meeting with their leadership team, to ensure thorough technical and cultural understanding. This time meeting with the client organization might seem like an unnecessary extra step; but Schoettelkotte believes it to be critical to ensure appropriately assessed candidates.
The Manhattan Resources team conducts a comprehensive evaluation of the position, where it sits in the organization, and any nuanced skills necessary in the right candidate that might extend to team relationships, historic expectations, and less clearly defined aspects of the business that may be impacted by or intersect with the role. This dedication to finding the right professional for the technical and cultural needs of the client, at the right stage of the professional’s career, is how they can provide an extended placement guaranty and candidates that often have extensive “runway” for future opportunities within the organization.
