Shares of Yext went as high as $14 or so after the company gave its final pricing at $11 last night — meaning it raised at least $115.5 million in its IPO.

The main sectors that CBA recruit in would be: Engineering, Environment, Financials, FMCG, Industry, Legal, Mergers & Acquisitions, Pharmaceutical, I.T.., Service Industries, Technology & Telecommunications.

The objective of each search assignment is to provide client organisations with suitably qualified executives to fill a position in the client’s organisation. To do this effectively we will:

  • Gain a thorough understanding of the client’s organisation, the role to be filled and experience and qualities required by the person to fit the role and the client company’s culture.
  • Identify target organisations in which suitably qualified potential candidates are likely to be found, and approach the individuals who appear to meet the requirements of the role.
  • Meet and evaluate interested potential candidates to establish their suitability for the client company and the position and introduce the most suitable candidates to the client.

When the selection has been made, CBA will take up references in respect of the successful candidate if asked to do so, and provide advice to the client on framing the offer of employment.

Upon completion of the assignment, CBA will remain in contact with the client and successful candidate to help with the on-boarding to ensure a successful outcome to the recruitment process for both parties.
