Potential client and
company questions

  • What geographies do you cover? More

    Jurupa’s coverage spans 4 continents and covers the European Union, The United States, APAC (Asia Pacific) and ANZ (Australia/New Zealand.)

  • Do you cover different time zones? More

    Our core team is based in the UK, however for anything outside of normal working hours, we aim to respond to all queries within 12 hours.

  • Do you focus on specific areas, sales, technical, commercial etc? More

    Our core focus is on GTM roles at mid to senior and leadership levels, however we occasionally consider briefs outside of the conventional scope upon request. Typically, our mandates encompass positions across sales, technical, marketing, engineering and operations.

  • What level of seniority does Jurupa focus on? More

    We execute everything from board level mandates through senior leadership searches and individual contributor briefs, which are often critical, confidential, niche or urgent.

  • Do you hire perm and contractors? More

    The majority of the hires we facilitate are permanent employees, however we have a strong community of executive level interim professionals available for short-term and temporary assignments.

  • Can you help with background checks? More

    Yes, these are processed by our partner and can generally be turned around within 7 working days in most cases.

  • What's your process with candidates? More

    At Jurupa, we have a defined candidate charter which stands as an SLA of sorts, and outlines our commitment to uploading minimum standards around communication, feedback and advice. Typically, the process begins with a 15 minute screening call conducted by a researcher to convey high level details of the role and opportunity, whilst basic details are gathered around current situation, current and target compensation, notice period etc. This is followed by a 45 minute deep-dive call in which functional and behavioural competency questions are presented.

    Qualified candidates are then added to the longlist, kept updated on a regular basis and guided through the process toward a conclusion. Jurupa will always act as the candidate’s counsel throughout the process, taking care of any required negotiation between the parties along the way.

  • What's your policy on diversity and inclusion? More

    Although steps are being taken to address the situation, there has been a legacy of underrepresentation of candidates from diverse backgrounds across the industries we serve. Our approach is to meet on a quarterly basis as an organisation to discuss the subject of DEI openly and honestly, remove all possible bias from the screening process, and carefully consider the wording used in our job descriptions and candidate briefing packs. Finally, we encourage our clients to assemble wherever possible, diverse interview panels.

  • How can your firm help us find executive or niche talent for our organisation? More

    By utilising our highly effective 7 step methodology, we have successfully delivered outstanding results for clients who came to us with seemingly unsolvable hiring challenges, only for our framework to deliver powerhouse hires.

Candidate focused questions

  • What type of positions do you hire for? More

    Our executive division covers board level roles, non-executive directors and chairpeople as well as the entire C-suite, encompassing CEOs, CTOs, COO, CMOs, Chief People Officers, Chief Product Officers and Chief Revenue Officers. Outside of this, we have successfully delivered searches at VP, Director and Mid-level.

  • How can I submit my CV/resume or express interest in a specific position? More

    Please submit your resume to info@jurupa.co; alternatively book a call in via the Calendly link on our website.

  • What criteria do you use to select candidates for executive roles? More

    We apply a full, executive search process which incorporates a detailed briefing call with the relevant stakeholders, enables us to map the addressable market, compile a bespoke candidate briefing pack along with tailored outreach, before engaging with target candidates and conducting in-depth screening interviews. This tends to include behavioural profiling, psychometric testing and formal referencing.

  • How does the interview process work once I've been identified as a potential candidate? More

    You will be invited to join an initial 15 minute screening call with one of our executive researchers to convey a high level overview of the company and the scope of opportunity, whilst they gather basic details around your current situation.

    Assuming both sides are in agreement about moving forward, you will be invited to join a 45 minute deep-dive call which goes into finer details about the wider opportunity and in which you will be asked a series of competency based questions – the answers from which will be summarised and shared with the interview panel prior to shortlisting.

  • What level of confidentiality can I expect during the search process? More

    Everything shared during your conversations is kept entirely within the bounds of the interview process and remains confidential between all parties. In the case of a search mandate which is highly sensitive or confidential, you might be asked to sign an NDA (non disclosure agreement) to ensure an additional layer of protection.

  • Do you offer career coaching or guidance to candidates throughout the recruitment process? More

    Yes, we offer an additional service called Career Mapping which is targeted at candidates who are seeking a proactive approach to identifying their next career move. This includes modules such as the optimisation of your resume or LinkedIn profile and proactive approaches into target employers of choice. We can even assist with positioning, tailored outreach and interview coaching.

  • Are there any fees or costs associated with being represented by your firm as a candidate? More

    No, not when we approach you in regards to a career opportunity. The only chargeable services we offer to candidates are those contained within our Career Mapping service, for which there is a nominal fee.

    Qualified candidates are then added to the longlist, kept updated on a regular basis and guided through the process toward a conclusion. Jurupa will always act as the candidate’s counsel throughout the process, taking care of any required negotiation between the parties along the way.
