Executive Recruitment

Our track record below demonstrates the results we are able to achieve for our clients.

State Government Executive Director

In 2008 Merit Solutions provided a full recruitment service to source and recruit an SES Executive Director role. This included advertising, limited search, receipt of applications and candidate care, initial assessment of candidates, design of selection processes, use of PAPI profiles, interview arrangements and scribing, preparation of selection reports, referee checks, verification of qualifications and feedback to applicants. Client feedback was very positive about our role in this complex and challenging assignment.

SEQ Water Reform

Merit Solutions has recently facilitated the advertising of some 20 positions ranging from Project Directors to an Executive Assistant for a new organisation established to facilitate SEQ water reform. In a rolling campaign to resource the newly formed organisation, we have successfully designed role statements, designed and placed advertisements, received applications, shortlisted fields and supported the selection processes.

State Government Commission

The implementation of a new State Government Commission was supported by Merit Solutions. The Director-General chaired the panel for the Commissioner and the process was supported with candidate care, detailed assessments of the field of applicants and a selection reporting process developed by Merit Solutions that allowed the panel to sign off on the report an hour after the interviews were finalized. We also supported selection panels involved in recruiting the remaining staff in the Commission so that they could meet the short time frames required to be operational in line with the requirements of the new Act, and have subsequently assisted the Cairns based Commission with ongoing recruitment needs.

Local Government Authority

Merit Solutions has gained a reputation as a provider of choice for one large SEQ Local Authority in relation to the provision of Executive Selection Support Services. All SES recruitment in this authority is supported by Merit Solutions in the provision of tailored reports that accurately reflect the high level selection panels’ deliberations and meet the demanding standards of the Cabinet decision making process, often within tight timeframes.
