Step 2 of 25
Community Stakeholder Interviews

In this step we come to your community and visit with as many of your stakeholders as possible in what we like to call "cup of coffee" visits. These are casual in nature to make people feel comfortable. We like to ask, "If we are sitting in this same room 3 years from now, what results do you want to have happened for you to look us in the eyes and thank us for finding you the right hire?"

Our 100 Research Calls To Identify Passive Candidates Who Are A-List City/County Managers Interested In Your Position.

(Note, these candidates won't apply just by reading a job ad we place, these apply after we discuss the position with them at length)

  • 78% of candidates are considered "passive." This means they are not looking at jobs boards daily to find a new job, they are likely happy where they are now, but would consider a new job if approached.
  • We find "passive" candidates are often far better than the candidates which simply respond to a job ad.
  • Our 100 calls find these "passive" candidates who otherwise might not apply.

Preview Candidates Via Our Video Interviews From Your Recliner.
  • We do "5-minute blast" video interviews with all our applicants.
  • These quick, blast interviews let you assess candidates in the comfort of your home or office right on your iPad or phone before you have to make judgements off boring resumes or before you spend a penny bringing a candidate to town to interview in person.
  • Because we record all our candidates for all our jobs, we literally have hundreds of videoed previews.

Our Risk Reduction Measures
Our Risk Reduction Measures

No search firm goes as far to reduce your risk as Next Move Group. How do we make such a claim?

  • We conduct credit and criminal background checks on everyone you interview. Our competitors typically only conduct these background checks on your finalist. But, we want to know if there is a problem with a candidate before you ever meet them, so we can either eliminate them or ask them about the issue when we interview the candidate.
  • We conduct "Management by Strengths" personality testing on all the candidates you interview so you get a picture of the strengths and weakness of each candidate's style.
  • Because we also do site selection work for corporations, we get to preview city and county managers as they interact with our clients’ development processes giving us the highest quality pool of city and county mangers in the USA.
  • We do a 7-panel urine analysis drug test on your finalist before he/she signs a contract.
