Altior regards each assignment as a unique mission. Leadership abilities are among the profile requirements in almost every assignment, but the combination of your business and corporate culture is unique. Our consultants therefore start each assignment with a detailed analysis of your organisation, the market you operate in and your corporate culture. We offer a critical sounding board in drafting job descriptions and profile requirements and are keen to know your vision and strategy and the entrepreneurial values you consider important. Based on our knowledge of the labour market, we define the job profile carefully in partnership with you and advise on the feasibility of the assignment. Because we are constantly receiving market and candidate information, we can discuss whether there is a need to tighten up or relax selection criteria. We draw up a long list of potential candidates which is gradually narrowed down to the top talent that will make the difference for your organisation. In other words, Altior is the essential link between your strategy and those candidates that you can’t reach yourself, but who represent the driving force that will turn your organisation’s strategy into a reality.
Thanks to our reputation and established name, we naturally have direct access to the supply of front-line candidates actively seeking employment. But Altior also tracks down and targets candidates in the second and third line of the labour market: candidates who are open to a move but are not (yet) actively on the look-out. In other words, Altior looks beyond the predictable pool of candidates that you can expect from traditional channels. This difference in focus sets Altior apart by enabling it to find the unique candidate who exceeds your expectations.
In our procedures, speed comes not at the expense of quality and efficiency but hand-in-hand with both. Top-notch, detailed reports on candidates and on the course of the procedure ensure full transparency in all aspects of the assignment. Our consultants are highly trained experts in Executive Search with years of business experience behind them. This expertise, combined with the latest sourcing techniques, guides us quickly and efficiently to the candidate target group that you aim to reach. Thanks to an objective and thorough evaluation of candidates, supplemented where appropriate by assessments and checking of references, we reduce the risk of mismatches to an absolute minimum. After all, Altior regards an assignment as successfully completed only once the client and the placed candidate have entered into a long-term relationship.
