We cover domestic and international assignments from our offices in Scandinavia and U.S. Our research team is divided into industry practice groups that work out of Los Angeles, Houston, London, Stockholm and Oslo. Our team has one goal; to turn every stone in the marketplace in order to discreetly identify, approach and screen the best talent at the clients competitors. Our focus is strictly on the top talent not actively looking for a job, that needs to be approached individually. We belive that every recruitment can be successful with the right profile specification and research strategy.
Our research ensures our clients get the best talent, as we track down the diamonds not actively looking for a new job.
With each senior researcher focusing only on one project at a time enables us to provide a speedy turnaround on every recruitment.
The cost is at a fraction of using a full service headhunter firm, as you are responsible for the last part of the process.
