Executive Search

Executive Search is applied in the search for managers or unusual specialists. Usually one assumes that such candidates cannot be adressed by traditional job ads in the newspapers. This type of search also ensures the confidentiality of the candidates and clients data.

The general procedure is:

  • The client grants us an exclusive mandate
  • Our search is based primarily on the key objectives for the vacant position
  • We screen the market for potential candidates
  • Preselected candidates are then contacted by us
  • The client receives a status report with three top candidates
  • The candidates are then presented in person to the client

 A complete search process for top-level positions can take up to 3 - 4 months in average.

 Generally we operate on the  retained search - principle, this usually involves the following costs:

  • A fixed search fee of one-third of the candidates first year total gross annual income
  • 1/3 of the fee is due for payment upon contract award
  • 1/3 after introduction of the first candidate
  • 1/3 on the first day after the candidate has joined the company
