Direct Search

We are experts in finding your next IT Manager or IT Professional

A broad network and in-depth industry knowledge

We use direct search – also known as executive search – to identify and target the most suitable candidates. Most often, they are not actively looking for jobs. We work closely with the client to understand the company’s needs, culture and requirements for the requested profile and to discuss with the client whether their expectations are realistic in relation to our market insight and the client’s salary budget. We then prepare a comprehensive search strategy that includes identifying relevant target groups and companies and then contacting potential candidates directly and performing a thorough screening and interview to learn more about their skills, experience, personality and qualifications.

Qualified candidates

The purpose of direct search is to present our clients with a selection of highly qualified candidates who are suitable for the specific position. The client then has the opportunity to choose between the best candidates and find the right person to add value and contribute to the success of the company.

Data and network

Our approach is based on data, insight and network. We use an open and neutral dialogue to get to know the candidates’ strengths, areas of development and future aspirations.

Thorough evaluation

Our use of technical tests, cases and personal profiles allows us to objectively assess candidates professional and personal competences to ensure that the candidates we present have the necessary expertise and are ready to deliver from day one.
