Our core values drive every interaction with our leading clients across Australia and New Zealand:
You know your organisation better than anyone. That’s why Kona & Co. consultants ask the right questions to compile a detailed brief of your needs. This leads to accuracy when combined with our broad industry experience and in-depth recruitment expertise.
Clarity is key in executive recruitment. Our aim is to streamline your recruitment and on-boarding process using crystal clear requirements to ensure the right corporate fit. Ideal candidates will align with your workplace culture, targets and preferred leadership style.
Attaining the very best professionals requires an adept approach to research, assessment and negotiation. Our expertise is your expertise. We are with you for every step of the recruitment process, providing support and advice through on-boarding, retention and beyond.
The recruitment and executive search worlds can be fraught with misinformation. Our consultants work in strict confidentiality and make enquiries discreetly to protect the identity of both candidates and organisations. Integrity is one of our vital values.
Our consultants believe in a proactive approach to professional recruitment. We work actively to expand our already-extensive network of top talent and work closely with leading organisations to help them stay one step ahead of change, challenges and uncertainty.
Kona & Co. recruitment specialists are in constant professional development, building on our industry experience and recruitment expertise to provide the best possible service at all times. Our finger is on the pulse of new recruitment technologies and practices.
Kona & Co. is backed by over 50 years of experience in executive search services. Through this experience we have developed a tested and proven approach to identifying key talent for leading organisations throughout Australasia, no matter what the requirement is. Each executive search is conducted according to these six steps:
Our consultants take the time to understand specifically what makes an ideal candidate for the position you are intending to fill. Your Kona & Co. consultant will construct a detailed brief outlining the role and its associated responsibilities and goals, as well as the leadership style, personality and industry experience you are seeking in your next executive hire.
Kona & Co. studies its extensive executive database and extends outside of expected markets to construct an initial list of potential candidates. This search takes into account factors such as industry experience, personality and leadership characteristics, values and measurable performance.
In order to provide a curated selection of high-quality talent for your consideration, your Kona & Co. consulting team next conducts a detailed interview and referencing process. This narrows the selection down to candidates who have a strong interest and aptitude for the position with proven experience. References and credentials are meticulously checked by our team.
We provide a refined candidate list so your interview process can begin. Throughout this process we are here to assist you with advice, selection support and additional credential checks as needed. We can also provide advice on salary and terms once you decide to make an offer to your candidate of choice.
Every executive search is conducted with the aim of enduring success. We keep in close contact with your business and new executive for an extended period to ensure we have facilitated a successful hire and an effective transition.
Kona & Co. specialises in professional recruitment for permanent, contract, project and interim requirements. Whether you are seeking technical professionals or needing to fill a senior management role, we use our proven process and extensive industry experience to curate a list of proficient candidates with the capabilities to drive your success.View all blogs
