Services

We specialize in providing professional senior and middle level recruitment, interim recruitment and leadership assessment services to large and medium sized international and Polish organizations across various sectors. We also provide coaching and career advice to individuals.




Executive Recruitment



Executive recruitment is the largest part of our business. We start each recruitment project with the most accurate and up to date market mapping of the available talent in any given segment, and then we assess and attract the most suitable leaders to our Clients' organizations to foster growth and development of both. Most of the roles we recruit for are located in Poland, but we also recruit across CEE and beyond.




Interim Recruitment



We help our Clients bridge leadership gaps in special situations i.e. one off projects, maternity or prolonged sick leave, turnaround management, temporary replacement etc. We have a database of highly skilled interim managers and we can quickly match our Clients' immediate needs with proper interim solutions.




Leadership Assessment



We strive to provide the most accurate leadership assessment to ensure organizations have the best leaders in place for today's volatile markets and are able to retain the most valued employees. We use our own assessment methodology supported by psychometric tests (Hogan Assessment Systems) which aside from being very effective in identifying strengths and weaknesses also provide profound insight into individual's hidden gaps and risk factors that are activated in either highly stressful or highly relaxed circumstances.




Career Advice & Coaching



We help individuals realize their potential through finding the most suitable work environment fostering growth and development of both the individuals and the organizations they work for.
