  • Our Process.

    Rigorous. Thorough. Meticulous.Delivering beyond expectations and on-time. Every time.

    1

    Strategy

    Based on the client brief, we create a custom strategy : who could be the best fit candidates including culture, where will we find them – local and or international, what level would be ideal, what are the key characteristics, among others. We then create a target list of companies in the same sector and or related industries.

    2

    Talent mapping

    The research analyst assigned to a particular mandate uses primary (database, references, cold calling) and secondary sources (google search, websites, LinkedIn, etc) to populate the target list with relevant names. This is then validated by the senior consultant and the clients.

    3

    Outreach

    The senior consultant then reaches out with utmost discretion & care, shares permitted client information including profile, website& detailed job description, resolves first level queries & obtains the resumes of the interested candidates. After a detailed phone or video screening, the top 10 prospects are shortlisted for the next level.

    4

    Screening

    The top 10 candidates are then met (in person or Skype) by the Founders along with a domain expert ; typically a former Chairman or CEO of a leading brand in the same industry, to ensure that only the best of the best pass through. After this stage, only the top 3 candidates are recommended to clients with a detailed analysis and fitment report.

  • Our formula: less is more.

    Our competitive edge : limited clientele, limitless reach​.

    “It has been a very good experience working with Clark & Kent during our recruiting process for a senior role in our newly opened India office.

    Mayuri, the co-founder of the firm led the engagement herself and that gave us the confidence to mandate Clark and Kent for this search. Mayuri and team gave us highly qualified and matching individuals for a difficult-to-fill position of the first try and minimized downtime of an open position. We were able to successfully close the position with the select few candidates recommended by Clark and Kent. Mayuri was transparent, consultative, involved at every step, playing the role of a deal enabler to the T.

    I have worked with numerous recruiters over the years, and I would highly recommend Clark and Kent for their professionalism, response time, and overall outstanding ability to understand and meet client needs.”

    “ I am pleased to recommend Clark & Kent. I worked with Mayuri and she has a good network of candidates, and the best part about Mayuri is that she listens and understands the requirement in detail and then provides the most suitable candidates in the shortest possible time. Her follow-up post-selection is amazing with the candidate; once you select the candidate, leave the rest to Mayuri and she will make sure that the candidate joins you on time.”

    “I had the occasion of working with Mayuri of Clark and Kent a few months ago when we were hiring for a senior position in a different location. Mayuri had promised that what she provides is quality and I would finalize on the candidate from the first few resumes she would send across. And that is what happened. After she sent a couple of resumes, we discussed what I liked and did not about each. She then fine-tuned her search accordingly and in the next bunch that we got, we interviewed and were able to shortlist a few good candidates.

    Throughout our interaction, Mayuri was very professional and very helpful. I really got the feeling that she understood our requirements and took all the needed efforts to get the correct match. It was a great experience working with Mayuri and Clark & Kent.”
