Executive Search

 A straight way to the best candidate

ISG Executive Search is the competence center for complex search processes for management and key positions in the national and international environment. Since 1999, this area counts as one of our specialties and is a considerable part of the company success story.

By Executive Search, we mean all search and selection processes at the first and second management levels. Each search process begins with a detailed analysis of our client’s strategy and the responsibilities for the position that are derived from that.

Together, a Job Requirement Matrix is ​​created based on this that reflects the desired competencies according to industry knowledge, expertise, management skills, leadership, and future development. We then jointly select from the appropriate search methods (direct search, social media search, online/print advertisement, databases). Our customers receive a short list of suitable candidates according to the project plan, including extensive candidate dossiers that fulfill the profile in accordance with the Job Requirement Matrix. Our headhunters support both the client and candidate throughout the process. We provide the fullest discretion and are always available for consultations.

Our Values

Highest quality: the supervision of projects by senior consultants, who have the corresponding long-term professional and management experience to guarantee our clients the highest confidentiality and professionalism.

Market and industry expertise: Our long-standing nationally and internationally operating research team possesses excellent market knowledge and provides our consultants targeted and current information on companies and candidates.

Internationality: Through years of ISG's strategy of internationalization, we can handle projects without geographic restrictions. The standardized and certified training of consultants ensures consistent high quality.

Sustainability: Long-term relationships with both our clients and candidates have a particularly high priority. Appreciation, respect and continuous communication are the basis of these long-standing, successful and trusting partnerships.

Our methods

We support our clients in their strategic development by selecting the best employees for management and key positions.

A detailed profile survey made by an experienced senior consultant follows the coordination of a specific search strategy and the selection of appropriate tools.

An industry-specific market and competition analysis, targeted direct contact and activation of candidates, personal interviews and the preparation of candidate files are as much a part of ISG standards as regular reporting on project status and personal guidance of candidates until the completion of the project. Our consultants act as moderators and mediators between candidates and clients and are gladly available as coaches in contract negotiations and in the final phase.

Take advantage of our many years of international industry know-how and our existing network and contact us for a personal meeting.
