Executive Search – your personal advisor at Hays

We know that finding suitable, qualified managers can be intricate and time-consuming. In order to relieve your HR department of this question, we will find the right candidates for you and contact them actively but discreetly, and with the necessary expertise. But how does Executive Search work? As a rule we conduct detailed consultations with you where we analyse your needs. This conversation forms the basis for us to create a requirement profile that includes your wishes and ideas. The challenging part of the work then begins for us – the search for your future manager.

We handle your data confidentially and are particularly discreet when it comes to your company details or information about your vacancy.

In order to be able to present you with suitable specialists and managers who meet your needs as quickly as possible, our experts rely on our extensive database and business networks, such as Xing or LinkedIn. Personal Executive Search consultants, who have both special industry knowledge and access to the extensive database, ensure the quality of co-operation with us.
