What our clients say
Senior VP Integrated Renewable Solutions - JOHN COCKERILL
Benjamin is an experienced recruiter with a large network and a clear understanding of business needs. He is an efficient communicator, both on business side as with interested candidates. It’s a pleasure to work with him !”
HR Director - DEMETRIS
Through job ads and search, Profile Group can always present qualitative candidates. Compared to other external partners, the pre-screening of candidates is much better and this ensures that Profile Group candidates stay with us much longer. Karla has also been able to understand the changes in the profile. The strategy is adjusted if necessary and, as a result, she still manages to present sufficient candidates even in the current labour market. Candidates always get a clear explanation about the position and the company and start the interview with us well prepared. Karla also ensures a very good follow-up during the recruitment process both with us and with the candidates. She also takes work off our hands by, for example, scheduling and confirming appointments with candidates. We have built a lasting cooperation with Profile Group. We have found dozens of new colleagues who have also stayed long-term. This high seniority is very important for us to be able to provide quality service to our customers as well. Karla is a real sparring partner who thinks along with us. She has such a good understanding of who we are looking for that it feels like she is an in-house recruiter. The collaboration with Profile Group is pleasant, sustainable and efficient.”
Senior Hr Interim Manager - NATIONAL SUISSE ASSURANCES
I met Veronique while I was looking for new HR job opportunities. As I was very satisfied of her approach, I also contacted her for helping me with recruiting an HR Assistant. What I appreciate most are her professional approach and capacity of understanding exactly what you are looking for as a client and also as a candidate. I would highly recommend working with Veronique’”
Chair of the Board of Directors - EDFI
Why do you like to work with us? I highly appreciate the personal commitment of the Profile Group (PG) expert, Hans, I worked with. He pro-actively contacted me regularly to ensure the efficient and successful recruitment procedure, he kept in contact with the long- and short-listed candidates and was helpful in discussing candidates’ suitability for the function in question. What were the recruitment challenges you, as head of the recruitment committee, had for the search for the new General Manager for EDFI? The job profile for the function was very specific, it was not like recruiting for a generalized function like teacher or bookkeeper, making it challenging to recruit and assess applicants. How has PROFILE GROUP answered these challenges? PG/Hans submitted a diverse initial long list to us. Because of our feedback PG/Hans gained better insight in the exact candidate profile we were looking for, which helped PG in its recruiting and initial assessment. What was it like to work with Hans in the search for the General Manager? Relaxed and informal in the best sense of these words. I could call him whenever I wanted, and he was almost always available. The informal character of the cooperation made it easy to quickly get to the point, talk frankly and progress well. What appeals to you in PROFILE GROUP’s service? It’s no-nonsense approach, efficiency, and quality. Why would you recommend Profile Group/Hans as Executive Search partner? Because such searches are always more complex in terms of profile sought and delicacy of process, and Hans is an excellent partner with the necessary capacity to listen to me as a client, patience, discretion, and tact.”
