Briefing and
search strategy

The basis of every order for a direct search is the requirement profile for the advertised position. The expectations regarding education, professional experience and qualifications are just as important as the question of the right personality for the company and the general conditions, that candidates find in a company.

The briefing defines the qualifications, requirements, wishes and goals of the new appointment. On this basis, we design the best possible search strategy together. We are as flexible in sub-projects as your requirements require.
