Search & Selection

We can search for experts and executives for your business, assess their competencies and background and motivate them to build a successful career with your company. Your benefits: minimize risk through our extensive competency checks, objective decision-making through our transparent and structured recruiting processes as well as a reduced workload caused by elaborate search and selection processes in your company


Together with your HR managers we will create a specific search profile for the vacant position and the required competencies, which will then form the basis for the following search and selection process.

We aim to reach the maximum number of qualified and interested persons in the initial recruiting process in order to later offer you the widest selection of suitable candidates. To make this strategy work, we need to fully integrate all possible resources and research channels. Depending on the vacant position and the job profile we will choose the relevant recruiting channels for the defined target group and geographical region.

The following methods are available:

  • Advertisement-based recruiting – Online and/or print media, internal or external
  • Research in our career database containing around 30,000 registered professionals
  • Research and Sourcing – external databases, Internet/Social Media, Deloitte Network

Through establishing initial contact with the potential candidates (applicant correspondence through advertisement-based recruiting or through a direct approach) we will describe the offered position, assess the profile compliance and the overall interest and motivation of the candidate.


We will conduct structured interviews with those candidates who meet the specified professional qualifications and who are interested in a career change and the vacant position. We determine the relevant competencies based on situational questions and online assessments and thus can offer a greater degree of objectivity in the recruitment process. To complete the overview, we can also carry out reference checks on your behalf.

This selection process will lead to a shortlist of those candidates who meet both professional and personal requirements. For these candidates we provide descriptive reviews. These reviews form the basis for our recommendations for next steps. We organize and prepare the job interviews between you and the most suitable candidates. If required, we can act as moderator to facilitate becoming acquainted with the candidate and to help you make a decision.

During the course of the final selection process, it’s often helpful to organize a hearing. In a hearing, several decision-makers can be present and you will be able to evaluate and compare the competencies of several candidates at the same time. We can prepare the hearing for you and the invited candidates as well as act as moderators.

When you have chosen a candidate, we are ready to assist you with the contract negotiations as well as any necessary financial arrangements.
