Executive Search


The Confius approach for Executive Search & Direct Search

In order to find the perfect - permanent - match, we look for more than qualities and capabilities. Profound knowledge and understanding of the market and your organisation or firm are essential. After all, the right man or woman at middle, senior or C-level must fit the work environment and corporate culture like a glove. You can rely on our expertise and extensive network for access to the best candidates. Instead of sending you a list of names and resumes, we provide you with a tailored shortlist.

Understanding your organisation

In order to gain clear insight into the culture, objectives and key performance indicators of your company, we meet with you several times and talk to a number of key persons in your organisation. These conversations contribute to a SWOT analysis of both your company as well as the position at stake and are the most important building blocks for the organisational and job analysis, which underlies the search selection process.


After drawing up a detailed initial profile and a description of your organisation and the vacant position, we discuss it with you and complete the final profile of the ideal candidate in close consultation.

Executive Search & Direct Search

After gathering all the necessary information, we are able to target and attract the most suitable candidates through our network, whether directly or indirectly. We interview these candidates extensively before we present you with a selection of curriculum vitae. Together we discuss the selection and we arrange interviews with the candidates you consider fit for the job.

Creating a ‘win’ negotiating for both sides

In order to help you bring the candidate on board in a manner that facilitates a long and successful stay with your organisation, we act as a sparring partner in negotiations throughout the entire procedure, for both you and the candidate. Once you have selected a final candidate we will provide you with a complete insight regarding his or her present and future compensation, benefits, bonuses and other conditions of employment.

Follow up

We stay in contact with the new hire professional as long as necessary to ensure a smooth transition and help him or her settle into the new position. Above all we make sure that you are fully satisfied before considering the search a success and concluding the assignment.
