ICT Executive Search


Executive, Retained Search (fixed fee)
Executive Search

Strategic recruitment for management & executive level positions & highly specialised positions From our experience, we know that the "most expensive," candidates are not necessarily the best candidates, therefore we offer our retained search services on a fixed fee basis, as this service provides better results and eliminates any conflicts of interest that can typically occur during direct search projects. We offer our clients a genuine and objective choice of the best candidates available in the market, focusing on their experience and proven results as opposed to having an interest in introducing candidates with higher salary requirements that ultimately generate higher placement fees. During our interview process we pay particular attention to our candidate's technical, strategic, management skills & experiences in conjunction with their motivating factors, the potential to grow, develop and bring lasting beneficial results to their employer, you, the Client. As highly experienced head hunters our preference for this service is for a fixed period of exclusivity on the assigned role(s) which then allows us to focus on finding the best talent, rather than being involved in a CV race where multiple agencies are involved in the recruitment process.

Our Areas of Expertise

Food and Drink
This is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable segments to work in. We all love food and know when we taste quality and fresh produce.
Our experience in this segment is therefore memorable and it is great to see some of the brands or products in the market we helped to establish here, through our successful hiring efforts.
We were lucky enough to work for many international and local companies involved in production, distribution and their expansion in our part of Europe.
We have visited a great many of their production facilities and learned a lot about food safety, market regulations and the general guidelines that make companies successful.
Within the production side of the business, we successfully delivered candidates to various roles in production, quality management, laboratory positions and also new product implementation and so on.
We have also helped our clients to find talented colleagues to join their sales, marketing, finance and human resources. 
We have worked for companies such as Chipita, Bonduelle, Döhler, Lactalis, Pivovary Staropramen (Molson Coors), Anheuser-Busch InBev, Findus, Hamé, Groupe Bel, Kofola, Allied Domecq. 
Further companies related to the food and drink industry can be found under Chemical sector. If you are interested in jobs within this area, please register your CV with us.



Banking and Finance
In the past, the Czech Republic was, for many banking and finance organisations, the first country in the former “Eastern block” where companies expanded their activities whether through acquisition or by opening their first branches here.
Many locally hired managers became responsible for their company’s expansions further East and could enjoy a very progressive career development and broadening their scope of responsibilities to wider geographic regions.
Initially, our focus was predominantly on those companies that entered the market by opening their first offices here and looking for local talent that could be developed to take on further expansion responsibilities in the whole CEE region and sometimes beyond.
Naturally the first positions hired were Operations Managers, Risk Managers, Human Resources and various customer support functions, later Credit Risk Managers, Senior Process and Risk Analysts, Capital Participation Managers, Corporate Advisors, Product Managers, Head of Trade Finance, Senior underwriters and so on.
Besides the “typical” banking roles, we were also involved in searching talent for positions in IT, Human Resources, Sales and Marketing, Branch Management and many other areas.
We pride ourselves in being a successful partner to companies such as Cetelem, Coface, Deutsche Bank, GE, Crédit Agricole, Marsh, Colonnade Insurance (QBE), Česká pojišťovna, Citibank, AXA, NLB Factoring, ČSOB, HVB, Generali. If you are interested in jobs within this area, please register your CV with us.

Retail segment
Over the years we have partnered with a number of leading food, fashion, cosmetics and other retailers in the CEE region.
We have been heavily involved in bringing brand-new companies into the local markets, whether by assisting our clients with hiring their very first staff in the region or by assisting regional management with their local expansions by hiring “hands on deck “.
We have worked for some of the major international fashion retailers, hiring their first Shop or Branch managers with the view to grow the retail network into other locations across the Czech Republic and other CEE countries.
We also had a unique opportunity to work for some of the “duty free retail“ chains, exclusively found at airports. Besides hiring the customer facing or expansion executives, we were also involved in more strategic corporate roles such as finance, strategy and planning, brand management, HR and training.
For many retailers involved in the food or textile industry we have successfully carried out searches for marketing staff including: BTL marketing, ATL marketing, mystery shopping, visual merchandising or overall communication creation and local on-line presence also product managers focusing on selected products or private labels.
Further positions placed into the retail segment include IT specialist – Project / Process Managers, Store IT Team Leads, candidates into infrastructure positions or applications development.
