Finding & engaging the best talents on the market as fast as possible, while providing a unique client experience driven by years of practice and a constant taste for innovation.
As most industries today, international talent sourcing is undergoing a series of deep changes.
Shortage of highly skilled talents, new behaviours, artificial intelligence are some of the challenges that are shaping a new landscape for executive search & selection.
Working as a close partner to recruiting specialists, we focus both on pipeline delivery AND helping our clients navigate in this landscape of new possibilities.
From target list to identification, phone qualification & longlist selection
Highly targeted market scan, with or without interviews, compensation benchmark, etc.
Designing a path to successful talent acquisition (organisation, process, technology...)
With offices in Paris & Brussels, a strong foothold in the Nordics, Benelux and Germany, we have developed a truely international expertise. Our main focus is EMEA, but over 30% of our projects extend to other regions.
More than a standard global approach, we follow a multi-local strategy with deep knowledge of the different working cultures in Europe, Middle-East & Africa in order to stay as close as possible to our clients' needs.
Market and functional expertise is one of the keys to a successful sourcing input. We cover most of the industries as well as many different function groups, at local, regional and global level.
