1. Fast

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.

2. Effective

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.

  • Limited off-limits.

  • Tailor-made Terms & Conditions for excellent value.

  • Committed to developing and maintaining long-term relationships.
