Our Process: Retained Search

We have an unmatched ability to discover exceptional candidates for senior roles across Europe and North America. This is because of our deep insight into the clean energy and e-mobility sectors, as well as a proven 29-step retained search process which adds tremendous value to our clients at every stage.

We ease the pain of recruitment, dedicating time to shape what a candidate should look like for every role we fill, digging deeper in our search to find the best hidden candidates.

We invest in long-term relationships with both clients and candidates which gives us a head-start in the recruitment process. Through openness and honesty, our team will show you a different, more personal side of recruitment.
