While a quality search takes time, we make progress daily and average eight to twelve weeks 'time to hire' from start of search until offer is extended to the candidate.
A Long List of potential candidates is presented to the client within four weeks in almost 100% of searches.
A Short List of qualified candidates is presented within eight weeks in 95% of mandates.
Maximum use of technology - unless we are instructed otherwise, for non-local candidates we interview via video conference to save our client time & money.
We 'search by research', using every possible and potential source of candidates:
Our database: the Lutz & Partners pool of highly qualified, local, or Swiss candidates.
Proprietary database of female talent, built over the past 20+ years
Our network: directly sourcing experts and professionals in the target industry or function.
Effective use of social media, in certain cases.
Candidates are screened and interviewed before being recommended for presentation to the client, ensuring that only the most suitable candidates are put forward.
Frequent and open communication with both the client and candidates.
Weekly updates during the active search phase.
Complete integrity vis-à-vis clients and candidates: mutual trust and discretion provides the basis for long-lasting business relationships.
Tailor-made Terms & Conditions for excellent value.
Committed to developing and maintaining long-term relationships.
