Recruitment Methodology

Dakin Mayers has three distinct approaches and methodologies towards recruitment assignments:

  • Advertised Recruitment
  • Ad Search
  • Executive Search

Ad Search

In order to effectively implement an appropriate strategy to ensure that the highest quality candidates are identified in the marketplace within the shortest period of time, Dakin Mayers recommends the process of Ad Search which combines the best aspects of both Advertised Recruitment and Focused Executive Search, and is designed to identify potential candidates who could be missed by relying on conventional advertising alone. It also demonstrates due process and transparency for our clients.


Fast and effective and if appropriately targeted, well written, and in the right print media, will attract people who are seeking a new challenge, and are able to identify with both the mission and objectives of our client. As advertising in print media is costly, we always discuss its use extensively before finalising the optimum strategy. We also register the position on selected Internet sites for increased coverage in a format that is easily accessible to candidates across Australia and overseas.

Focused Search

 Utilising our Research Department, through extensive networking, and drawing upon our specialist knowledge of the marketplace, we identify potential individuals for the role, approach them confidentially to engage their interest, and interview them to assess suitability. Our comprehensive database, built up over the course of our many searches in various industry sectors across Australia, will play a strong part in identifying potential candidates for our search. Additionally, our Senior Consultants are LinkedIn specialists with high caliber and diverse industry related networks. 

Confidentiality is assured for applicants who might not want to divulge their identities at the preliminary stage.
