The ESR team : 13 Researchers/ USA & Scandinavia/ Info@esr.global

We cover both domestic and international assignments from our offices in Scandinavia and U.S.  Of the 13 research consultants; 6 cover the Scandinavian market and 7 the US market. Our research team is divided into industry practice groups and they work out of our offices in Los Angeles, Houston, London, Stockholm and Oslo. Our research 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 belief is that every recruitment can be successful with the right profile specification and research strategy. 



Our thorough 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.


Does your company primarily need a short-list of top talent, and want to conduct the final interviews yourself ?
