Job Description

At the helm of a very dynamic and flat organization in a fast-moving industry, the CEO will have the primary task of steering the Company ably and with a vision to assure that Net Info remains the undisputed leader in the space and sets the pace of development in the market. The key areas of focus for the CEO will be as follows.

In the ever-changing digital environment, where technological developments and new business models can create competitors overnight, having a strategic vision, combined with an ability to quickly assess new threats and opportunities and change course if necessary will be a key factor of success for the CEO. About 30 to 40% of the CEO’s time will be devoted to this area. The key responsibilities for the CEO will be:
• Develop and communicate a five-year strategic plan, based on a thorough understanding of the industry and its future development
• Translate this plan into executable steps with half to one year increments
• Review the plan at least once a year and adjust according to the environment and the organizational capabilities
• Rally up the employees to work towards the five-year goal
• Constantly review and optimize the product portfolio of the company to assure the needed balance between profitability and investment for the future
• Work with brand and product managers to assure timely delivery of products according to the plan and of the desired quality and technological level
• Oversee all business relationships, including the initiation of new ones and the renegotiation of existing partner arrangements, as needed to deliver the strategic vision (together with the business development manager)
• Represent the company in all existing and future trade associations and organizations (e.g., Nielsen Online)
• Coordinate the strategy and leverage the resources of the parent company Sanoma Magazines International, including cooperation with digital media units in Netherlands, Hungary, etc.
• Steer the CSR and PR policy of the Company and be available to represent Net Info in the public sphere

Net Info’s organization constantly evolves as the Company grows and the environment changes. The key challenge is to maintain a flat and flexible organization that can respond fast to the changing environment, while having the needed structures to move forward a company of 100+ individuals. The selection process is of utmost importance in assuring the right attitude and motivation in a seemingly unstructured, entrepreneurial environment. Another 30 to 40% of the CEO’s time will be devoted to this area. The main responsibilities of the CEO will be:
• Constantly monitor and review organizational processes and structures to optimize the effectiveness of the all resources (human or other); Net Info’s organization is a living organism and needs change to remain fresh and mobilized
• Garner support for organizational changes among the heads of teams and functional heads
• Work closely with the HR manager to stay in tune with the organizational life, especially the informal organizational life, which is key to Net Info’s success
• Participate actively in the selection process and interview each candidate to assure fit with the organization
• Improve internal communication, so that everyone remains involved on a very high level
• Develop together with the HR manager programs to increase employee satisfaction and self-identification with the goals of the Company
• Spend significant time with all direct reports in order to assure synchronization of everyone’s efforts and adequate distribution of responsibility throughout the organization
• Develop the managerial skills and qualifications of direct reports; goal-based approach to development is preferred
• Be prepared to deal with personal circumstances and find solutions for valuable employees
• Be an example for the necessary work ethic and organizational behavior

Finance and Administration

• Monitor and facilitate if necessary the semi-annual performance review processes

Вие как мислите? Познавате ли такъв човек? А самите Вие дали не отговаряте на тази изисквания. Аз лично се замислих чисто в теория на вероятностите разбира се, дали не бих могъл аз да бъда този човек. Естествено тази мисъл дойде и си замина за около 2 сек. – отговора ви е ясен нали :) Аз лично не отговарям на много от изискванията.

Замислих се за хората които познавам и знам че има донякъде нужният опит, но и те не покриват всички изисквания. По този начин стигнах до извода, че всъщност колегите от Нет Инфо.БГ не са пуснали тази обява, за да намерят наистина CEO а по-скоро за да съберат данни на много кадърни и интелигентни хора, тоест всичко това е много добра стратегия за намиране на хора. Замислете се как обикновено се намира човек, който да бъде мениджър на много голяма компания. Дали става с обява за работа, или се търси в определен кръг хора? Как всъщност се намира човек за такава позиция? Това е интересен въпрос и си заслужава човек да се замисли.

Как аз бих търсил такъв човек: първо бих потърсил първо хора в компанията, дали те са подходящи за тази позиция. Няма смисъл да изброявам защо един човек от компанията е подходящ нали? Също така бих се огледал на пазара, дали познавам
някой човек, който има подобен опит или има огромни познания върху пазара и т.н. След това бих потърсил и в чужбина, защото там има хора които определено има какво ново да дадат на компания особено ако е от пазарите където интернет е вече лидер, нещо което вътрешен човек не би могъл да направи. Разбира се този човек ще иска голямо парично възнаграждение което е пречка а и няма да има реалният поглед върху пазара ни, въпреки че колегите му ще му помогнат. Друг вариант според мен е да се вземе човек от друг медиен канал. Някой успял, някой с голям опит в менажиране на компании от такава величина. Сигурен съм че има и други начини за търсене на хора.

И все пак ако вие препоръчате някой, може да спечелите 5 000лв., което не е за изпускане :)

    Ако една компания търси ново CEO отвън компанията то обикновено го прави много тихо и обикновено през една от многото т.н. executive search firms. И съм абсолютно съгласен, че първо трябва да се гледа вътре в компанията. А може би те вече са го направили и са решили, че външен човек е по добрия вариант?
