Direct Search

Experience shows that job adverts reach a maximum of 20% of relevant candidates. More than 80% of all candidates need to be actively identified and targeted in order to entice them to change companies. As a result, every recruitment is “set up” according to the Direct Search approach: target-company lists, idents, initial contacts, interviews – this is how we find the very best candidates.

Methodical Expertise

We apply our “PURE” diagnostic approach to measure the degree of consistency between the agreed candidate profile of our clients and the profiles of our candidates. We carefully examine the candidates' documents and use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools: profiles XT, ‘Cultural Due Diligence’ and evaluation of references, analysing leadership and management skills, value systems and the operational excellence of our candidates.

Assurances

We work by the motto of: the search will continue until the position is filled! If a candidate who we have recruited leaves the client's company of their own volition within the trial period, we will repeat our search once again without asking for any further fee payment. And of course, all of our clients are protected by our ‘don’t-touch guarantee’! This applies to the entire DELTACON group.

Performance-based Remuneration

We invite others to judge us on the basis of our success: our fees are graduated, with two-thirds of the amount being based on our performance. Following an order from one of our clients, we charge a retainer as down payment. On receipt of this initial amount, we can start our search. A second instalment will only be due for payment once our clients have invited candidates from the short-list for interview. These candidates will have been carefully examined and are presented to the client: a real measure of our performance. The final instalment is due on signing of an employment contract.
