Future Search Group - Testimonials

"Making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life'.”

"We have worked with Future Search Group in spring 2016 in the context of one of our recruiting processes for a vacant CFO position. 

You contacted us in response to our online job advertisement and presented us two candidatures with good matching profiles. We picked one of the candidates and organised three interviews with her, one of them consisting in an assessement center. Finally we decided us against your candidate, since we had a preference for another candidate, who was more experienced. 

We remember the collaboration with you as very efficient and constructive. We appreciated your focused support in our recruiting procedure and your support whenever needed. 

On a final note we can recommend your professionalism and efficiency and – of course – your clear client-first mentality."

“I have been working with employees of Future Search Group in my capacity as the HR Director Europe. We have recently experienced difficulties in finding the right calibre of candidates for our headquarters in the northern part of Switzerland. It seemed to be a combination of personal and technical skills that were lacking. Especially our hands-on mentality for more experienced roles seemed to cause issues for most candidates.

Due to the in-depth experience that the team at Future Search Group has gathered over the years, they have been able to test and pre-screen candidates successfully in order to be able to only present us the best calibre of candidates. After 7 days I was presented with a shortlist of 8 candidates, of which we selected 6 after discussing with the team at Future Search Group.

Even though our processes to take some time, due to significant travel of senior management, we have been able to screen a first shortlist of 6 candidates of which we invited 2 into the final round. Both final candidates have performed well and we had the choice of picking a candidate that was a bit less experienced with more potential. Exactly in line with our groups philosophy.”

“I have worked with Future Search Group on numerous mandates in the finance field. We have had significant changes going through our organisation over the past couple of years. A number of restructurings and reorganisations have taken place. That has created the need for us to go external to find new talent with the right mindset.

I remember to have worked with someone at Future Search Group and got in touch with them to see how they can support me in finding the right person. It was not an easy task due to the recent history of reorganisations in our group and the combination of technical skills including POC methodology that were required.

However Future Search Group has had an experienced business integrator amongst their peers that has worked in the POC realm and could support me  in finding the right skills, as he could test the candidates knowledge.

After a shortlist of ten candidates was presented to me, I picked six for a first round interview. Finally I could choose between four very strong candidates to come on board. As the requirement was urgent I chose the candidate that was immediately available.

On a final note I can recommend the professionalism and speed Future Search Group works at with the right client-first mentality they are able to even fill the toughest of positions.”
