We provide Search-specific Support
Executive search and in-house recruiting department admin support requires specific experience and expertise – a skill set that comes from a pressure cooker of training and time. Prana Partners deeply understands not only the complexity of this role, but also how integral this position is to a smooth, productive, and profitable search and a cohesive back office.
Together, our Partners have over three decades of experience in the executive search industry and in-house recruiting. We understand how a bottleneck, mistakes, position turnover, or absences on a team decrease profit margins.
Our team of interim, project-based, and part-time Admin search professionals are Executive Search-trained, seasoned administrative coordinators who can efficiently step into a search firm or recruiting department.
- Partner support between permanent hires
- Vacation, maternity, or sick leave coverage
- Work overflow assistance – as when multiple searches get signed within a short period of time, our client firms need immediate and knowledgeable support
- Individual office projects and/or project coordination of one or more searches
Prana Partners’ Executive Admins are experienced and highly recommended professionals who enter our clients’ search cycles with little disruption to the process. They step out just as easily leaving an organized desk for permanent employees.
It has been a pleasure partnering with the team at Prana. They quickly understood our needs and culture and matched us with an interim search admin who landed on her feet quickly and who has been a great team member. Despite her remote location she is very much part of our team. Prana checked in regularly and in a professional manner and were very flexible when we needed to adjust and extend hours. We look forward to continue working with them! Heike Hiss, Box
Prana has been an essential partner in growing my new firm. After establishing my needs, they paired me with Lisa, who has brought valuable search experience to my team. She hit the ground running, makes great suggestions on improving processes and documentation, and is available when I need her. Linny Simkin, Simkin Search
As a start-up it’s difficult to make choices about what my first actions should be. Prana Partners provided sound and wise advice on what I should be focused on, how I should budget, and even the kind of talent I should hire. They’ve helped me lay the foundation for a successful future. Anthony Tanismore, Blueridge Advisors
(For firms already using Prana search/in-house recruiting admin services, we provide retained recruiting services.) I found Prana Partners to be the most supportive, thorough and thoughtful search firm I have ever worked with. They are as professional as they are kind. They spent hours learning about me and then educating me about the firm I interviewed with. I felt like there was an added bonus of professional coaching in the process. From a candidate’s standpoint, I cannot recommend them enough. Linda Collantes, Lonergan Partners
