merger and acquisition targeting and approach

merger & acquisition targeting
Companies wishing to expand through merger or acquisition need to know who to target and sometimes need a third party make an initial, confidential approach. We can do this for you. Our knowledge of the high technology sector makes us an ideal choice for this purpose. Once a target has been located, we can make a confidential approach. We are also considerably cheaper than the big 5 consultancies.
We can provide a range of services from initial research, target listing, initial approach, relationship development (in conjunction with the client), negotiation, initial due diligence etc. Once the acquisition has been completed we can assist with relocation of staff, hiring new staff and assisting released staff find new positions. The M&A service can also include asset acquisition or the provision of outsourced services following asset acquisition.
This service is primarily aimed at companies who are looking to buy firms in another country where they do not have a presence particularly those outside UK/Europe.

job description development
We can work with you on the job description to ensure we have the right information to do the job. In addition we can also use our in-depth assessment tool The Profile XT to provide additional information with regard to finding the candidate with the right fit for the job including thinking style, behavioural traits and occupational interests. For additional information about the way our assessments work see assessments. Candidate profiling can then be used for matching purposes with great success.
If you would like to talk to one of our specialists then call us on +44 (0)1491 636300 or see contact us or submit a job description to email@example.com or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any further information.
Our services to the client do not stop once the candidate has accepted a job but continue for a period of time into the first few weeks of employment to ensure that your new member of staff is settling in acceptably. One of the benefits of this is that the new incumbent sees your organisation from a first impressions point of view. This can provide valuable insights into a company and provide very useful feedback as well as ensuring that no misunderstandings have arisen (but have been left unsaid) between what an employer has said during the interview and the perceptions held by the employee.
For all the emphasis placed on the way in which interviewees perform, how much experience do you or your staff have at carrying out an effective interview. For senior positions how many people look for people similar to themselves, how much planning goes into the process, do you have two or three interviews, perhaps some testing, will the length of time this process takes have a bearing on the outcome etc. etc. For guidance give us a call for some specialist advice on our direct line +44 (0)1491 636300.
management consulting and interim management
It may not be staff issues that concern you when margins are under pressure, it could be the lack of a new product strategy, inadequate brand awareness, the need for cultural change, better internal communications, poor strategic focus or even an underperforming CEO/director. At this level you will need a consultancy that understands all your issues and can then deliver a solution quickly. Our integrated service offering of strategic consultancy, interim management and executive search is comprehensive. To discuss any issues affecting your business call Keith Irving on +44 1491 636 300.
At the other end of recruitment lies redundancy. Redundancy today occurs for many reasons including acquisition, rapid changes in technology, pressure from the stockmarket etc. with the result that it is not unusual to lay off very good and highly qualified, experienced people. We are in an ideal position to help such businesses deal with such issues effectively and sensitively, and in strict confidence. E-mail: email@example.com.
Introducing a new member to the team can be a risky if not a disastrous step. Knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of a team are a pre-requisite to the teams success and to ensure that they work together effectively and efficiently. The use of Profiles Team Analysis can alleviate any potential problems by simply allowing the team leader to balance say meetings, if he knows he has to limit input by extroverted staff such that input can be coaxed from the more introverted members.
