Welcome to Mandrake
Search Process

We follow a rigorous 10-step search process to ensure each project is thorough and consistent. Before we start a search, we meet with the client to get a thorough understanding of their business and talent requirements. From there, we're able to develop an effective search strategy that includes in-depth market research and direct recruitment of passive candidates in the marketplace. This leads us to the interview stage where we assess and rank a list of top candidates. We then facilitate the client hiring and selection process, advising on both interviewing techniques and candidate assessment. Clients can expect to receive regular status reports and other communications throughout the search. At the client's request, we also provide expert reference checking and job offer negotiation services as part of the process. Our role doesn't end with the hire, however. We work with clients to ensure the effective onboarding of new hires so they transition smoothly into their new role. After the search, a project review is conducted to get feedback about our search performance, as well as to follow up on the progress of the hired candidate in the organization.

"Stefan is not only an Executive Consultant with a track record of few hundred completed C-level searches, but the CEO of one of Canadian's best Executive Search and HR Consultancy firm. He is a strategic advisor to numerous senior level executives (Supervisory Boards and Board of Directors) as well as a coach and mentor to many professionals. His entrepreneurship experiences, abilities and achievements are both well recognized and appreciated by world's known YPO. He is a person one can trust, rely on, expect that he would deliver, enjoy his companion and sense a of humor, admire his wisdom and values, and respect him for what he stands for both as his family is concerned and the business he runs. What is quite unique about him is that being extremely blessed to be successful, he constantly remembers about those less fortunate and in need. He is an initiator of many undertakings to raise money, support and help others financially. One of the few ones that I would dream to work with if I had a chance to. Without any hesitation I would encourage any of my Clients to work with Stefan in Canada."
