requirement assessment

Our years of management experience in your industry mean we understand your business. The candidate's future success strongly depends on the individual's personality and ability to thrive on the existing corporate culture. We understand the candidate's appropriate professional knowledge as a prerequisite and not as a key success factor. To guide our search we intensively discuss both social skills and professional qualifications with our client to understand and formulate their needs. Our professionalism and management experience is your guarantee to rapidly identify and accurately assess candidate potential.

With our passion and ambition to deliver high performance and offer excellent solutions we find the right people fast and exceed our clients' expectations.

We interact as partners and build a valued relationship as we speak both our client's and the candidate's language. With this approach we gain sustainable relationships even with the most demanding clients and candidates which leads to personal referrals expanding our exceptional database.

Therefore, we never delegate this important task to our back-office or an external recruiting agency. Only our well qualified and experienced consultants have an excellent understanding of the needs, concerns and aspirations of managers and executives and present the opportunities offered by the new position in a reliable and credible way. Our consultant's professional background and experience is recognized and establishes a sustainable relation of trust. We empathize with our candidates' to motivate and inspire them for the new challenge. Our proven ability in direct search is greatly appreciated and leads to numerous successfully placements within a broad range of industries.

competence assessment

The candidate's behavior with regards to working habits and mindset is scrutinized and allow a successful integration into the Corporate Culture and the new position. All of our interviews are well-structured discussions with a focus on the professional qualifications and the candidates' social skills. The answers to questions like "How exactly did you handle a specific challenging situation in your former position?" reveal more about the applicant's personality than professional or technical skills. To get a deeper understanding of their personality, we additional request a self-assessment questionnaire and compare this input with our own evaluation. The individual assessment of the candidate's personal skills and professional qualifications finalizes each job application we present to our clients.
