Deputy General Manager - Teledyne ICM
“Above and beyond the very comprehensive approach used and the network of candidates that Profile Group offers, the willingness to get to know the client is the key to the success of our partnership with Profile Group. ”
It is extremely difficult to recruit for technical positions
It is extremely difficult to recruit for technical positions in the Liège area. People don’t travel very far, and even less so for technical positions. Plus they aren’t always available or open to changing jobs. I believe that, thanks to the way you work and your network and your experience and headhunting, you will be able to find the people we are looking for faster.
Profile Group’s approach and network make the difference
In “Recruitment & Selection”, Profile Group’s approach and network make it easier to find the kind of people we are looking for, and that’s what makes the difference compared with the way we look for people ourselves. First of all, there is real support when it comes to writing job descriptions to make them appealing. Then, more than just publishing the advertisements, Profile Group works on 2 levels at the same time: checking Profile Group’s internal network, and also headhunting candidates to target the right kinds of people thanks to your tools.
Recruitment is easier!
Recruitment is easier, especially for technical positions. We have recruited 5 or 6 people During my first meeting with a member of Profile Group, I was aware of a real sense of closeness, and this meant we could start working together quickly with confidence. The drive that people have in Liège is a real asset because we are looking for local people!
What our clients say
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.”

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.”
