Executive Search

Sterling's objective is to develop a long-term strategic partnership with our clients placing mid-level to senior level positions.

Sterling Human Resource Consulting is a premier international executive search firm, specializing in recruiting services for top-level executives and a firm distinguished by superior client service.

Every recruitment assignment is unique and needs to be carefully assessed. Our extensive experience will help define the ideal candidate profile, determine how to attract the best people and decide what reward package fits the candidate as well as the client.

Integrity: We are committed to openness and candor with our clients, candidates and each other.

Client focus: Our clients always come first. Their satisfaction is the key measure of our success.

Innovation: Anticipating and acting on our clients' needs help us think creatively and challenge the status quo.

Teamwork: Shared goals and cooperation among team members and clients optimize performance.

Search and Selection

When a broader and more comprehensive approach is needed, Sterling may recommend a tailored advertising campaign in order to reach the widest possible target audience. In the fiercely competitive market for talent, the success of such a strategy fundamentally depends upon the experience and professionalism of the Consultant working on its planning and research. You will benefit from a Sterling team assigned to your project with a Director managing progress through to successful conclusion.

Sterling would supply a current market analysis, together with specific information about the business sectors most likely to provide suitable candidates. Having identified the main 'selling points' of your organization and role, we work closely with our advertising agency to create and execute carefully positioned, high-impact advertising to attract a wide range of appropriate, high quality candidates.

Sterling is highly experienced in the use of all forms of advertising media, including specialist press, regional and national newspapers, local radio and of course the rapidly evolving internet - because we are regular advertisers, we can use our substantial media buying power to optimize your advertising costs.

Once an advertisement appears, we acknowledge all response in writing, screen initial CV's and interview all relevant candidates. A shortlist is then submitted for final client selection along with candidate resumes and comprehensive evaluation summaries. If required, Sterling can subsequently design and manage a robust assessment process to help making the right selection decisions.

Provide Sterling with the brief and we will tailor, recommend and then deliver a professional solution to meet you recruitment requirements.
