Our certified search and selection process

How we find the right minds for you

Whether Executive Search or Professional Search – at FERCHAU DIRECT we split recruitment projects into four phases to ensure that your vacancy is ideally filled and that we make the greatest possible contribution to the success of your company.

1. Profile clari­fi­ca­tion

  • Understanding of the special features and history of the client and the vacancy
  • Development of technical and personal requirements regarding the potential candidates
  • Coordination of the process and consulting about the targeted recruitment instruments and selection process

2. Candi­date search

  • Use of the agreed recruitment instruments to include a large number of potential candidates in the selection process, necessary for the best possible chance of filling of the vacancy.

3. Candi­date selec­tion

  • Check of the potential candidates’ CVs and references
  • Structured, competence-based candidate interviews: behaviour-orientated personal interviews are used instead of psychometric tests.
  • The suitability of the individual candidates is evaluated after an analysis of all information.
  • Only precisely suited candidates are presented to the customer.

4. Custo­mer’s candi­date selec­tion

  • Personal discussions are held with potential candidates based on the presentation documents and the customer’s perception is compared with the FERCHAU consultant’s findings.
  • The interviews can be accompanied by our consultants, if required.
  • If appointed, we will support you until your preferred candidate starts in your company and beyond.

You need two things to bring in the best minds: the best search stra­tegy and the best recruit­ment process
