One decision will affect your organization's
success in many different ways.
MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE
Finding the right leader can be difficult - especially when it comes to executive level positions. With so many capable people ready to put themselves forward for consideration, how do you identify and separate good leaders from great leaders?
Conducting a search to find the elusive 'right leader' requires many skillsets. An effective search practitioner must not only have a thorough understanding of research practices and search methodologies, but must also cultivate extensive knowledge about a client's industry, business focus and goals, and ultimately understand the impact the hiring decision will have on the team and the organization's ability to thrive.
THE MERRION ADVANTAGE
When you're looking to hire a leader for your business you aren't looking for just any employee...
so, why would you choose just any search firm?
At Merrion Executive Search, we pride ourselves on working with a select group of clients. This exclusivity allows us to minimize non-competes and provides you with the security of knowing we won’t be consulting with you today and all of your competitors tomorrow.
Our priority is to always be your executive search firm of choice. As a result, we have a particular stake in your success and a strong incentive to build a long-lasting relationship founded on trust, confidence and shared values.
Consider us as you would a trusted colleague, and leverage the Merrion Advantage.
You are looking for candidates who will be with your team for the long haul, and we are looking to be an extension of that same team. We strive to become immersed in your organization’s culture, to get to know your business needs intimately, and to build and retain a deep institutional knowledge that is essential for making informed recommendations about candidates.

Understanding Your Business, Brand and Goals
We create detailed briefing documents that demonstrate a thoughtful understanding of your business goals, values and overall hiring needs. We want to gain a comprehensive knowledge of your business that we continue to nurture and develop over time.
Aligning Your Search Requirements With Your Corporate Needs
Each search begins with an assessment of the position specifications within the broader context of your business. In consultation with you, we identify accountabilities and business requirements, and develop the ideal candidate profile in terms of skillsets, experience and fit. We establish timelines and agree upon deliverables.
Targeting The Right Talent
Our thorough industry knowledge, well-maintained talent networks, and proven research practices provide us with a variety of methods to identify a long list of potential candidates.
We use a variety of interview and competency-based assessment tools to benchmark candidates against each other. We systematically narrow the long list to a short list that is tailored to your needs and prioritize candidates who will thrive in the role and your organization.
THE EXECUTIVE SEARCH PROCESS
Selecting From The Best
Once you select your preferred candidate, we complete thorough references and partner with you to develop a compelling offer to ensure the completion of the search.
Our work does not end with candidate placement. We assist with the successful candidate’s transition into your organization and consult regularly with you and the candidate to review your progress together and to reaffirm that our process identified the “right leader.” Our goal is to partner with you again. We know your continued satisfaction with the results of our work will keep our relationship strong.
At Merrion, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of client and candidate service. In conducting searches on your behalf, we make a firm commitment to complete discretion, loyally representing your interests, and building and maintaining an exceptional reputation as an extension of your business in the marketplace.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
At Merrion, we believe the “right leader” may not necessarily be the obvious one. We conduct searches that identify the best candidates for your shortlist, including people from diverse backgrounds. You deserve to evaluate the best talent, not simply the most well-connected.
