We are vested in ensuring that there is a meeting of the minds for both parties, leading to a successful placement. This can only occur when there is a real understanding of our clients’ requirements and culture, which means we get to know their business intimately.

Similarly, we align the aspirations, skills and abilities of potential candidates to opportunities only by truly getting to know them face to face and having the necessary open and honest conversations and in-depth discussions to ascertain fit.

The top-performing executives in the market are highly valued existing employees and are not actively pursuing new career opportunities in the market. They are well rewarded and their employers wish to retain them at all costs.

Procuring these candidates in the market requires diligence and the skill that comes from many years of experience carefully approaching and winning peoples trust, in order to establish interest and disposition toward a potential career move.

Having conducted an in-depth study and analysis of why senior executives typically leave an organisation quickly after joining, it is mainly due to cultural misfit. Senior executives will not stay if they are not aligned culturally, hence we ensure that we go to great lengths to understand the pervading culture within our client organisations, in order to asses potential candidate fit.
