Our recruitment process

We start every Executive Search process with a thorough needs analysis of the assignment and job profile. It's vital for us to understand your business in order to assess the qualities and experiences required for the specific assignment.

Therefore, we appoint a recruitment team consisting of senior recruitment consultants and when needed, researchers. To ensure an effective and high quality process, the team acquires knowledge about your business: goals, future challenges, values, and corporate culture. In the next step of the process, we reach out to people in our network and conduct an analysis to identify and contact the candidates that best fit the role. We work with the leading search tools on the market and, in consultation with you, we also provide any necessary advertising in selected media.

We conduct in-depth interviews, quality-assurance testing, and extensive reference-taking of the selected candidates. We then present the candidates who best match the job profile to you. The process is completely transparent for you as a customer - we will keep you updated through every stage.
