Executive Search

We recommend this method when there is a shortage of relevant candidates, or if you need confidentiality.
Through our network, we can introduce the company and the position to candidates who are not in the market. Through a thorough assessment process, we then assure the quality of the final candidates.


We recommend this method when the company is able to attract the relevant applicants, but does not have the capacity and/or experience internally to implement the process.
In addition, this method will promote the company. We can take responsibility for the whole process from A - Z and assure the quality of final candidates through a thorough assessment process.


Assessment is used for quality assurance of final candidates in executive search and advertised recruitment. The method is also used in second opinions, human due diligence, leadership assessment and consulting in management and organizational development.
In addition to in-depth interviews, we use recognized psychometric and analytical tools approved by DNV.
