Every assignment is a fresh challenge
to surpass client expectations.

We discuss search and assessment methods and parameters in detail
with our clients to ensure that we fulfil your precise business
needs and exceed your best expectations every time. Understanding
your business, your market, your strategy and your culture is key
to our finding the person you really need. Our proposals include
our detailed analysis of the business context and candidate profiles
related to the assignment.
Finding the right people to manage your business is absolutely critical
to your organisation and we take that responsibility very seriously.
We are exhaustive in our searches and, will often extend the search
outside Portugal both through our INAC network partners and, in
some cases, though direct global searches (Global search).
By the time we present candidates to you for a senior position we
will typically have spent over 4 hours with them, in interviews,
psychometric testing and, where appropriate, using case study exercises.
Most of that time will be with one or more of the Partners and not
just our more junior consultants (who are, of course, experts too!).
Reference checking is an extremely important
part of the process. During the search we will already have gained
some useful opinions about shortlisted candidates but once you have
selected a final choice, we carry out carefully structured reference
checks of former superiors, peers and subordinates.
We like to make sure you know what is going on at all times, so
we can create a password protected, dedicated area of our website
for you to access, where will regularly update information about
the assignment - key documents, target sectors and companies, first
identification, direct contacts, candidate data and so on. Our confidentiality
rules mean that we will only identify consenting candidates at a
final stage but you will still be able to follow exactly what we
are doing for you, wherever and whenever you wish, from the first
search of our database and the market right up to shortlist reports
and final selection.
Our shortlist reports are aimed to be informative,
readable and concise documents, tailored to your style and business
We are always available to mediate contract negotiation between
the client and the chosen candidate, making sure that both sides
achieve their goals in a transparent and clear process. We then
support the candidate in his or her transition and integration into
the new position and will continue to do so for a number of months.
We guarantee our searches against the possibility that a chosen
candidate simply does not work out in the job, for whatever reason.
During the guarantee period we will restart the search without any
extra fees until we make sure that you have a fully satisfactory
replacement. Of course, we do everything we can to make sure this
never happens and we are happy to report this has only occurred
on three occasion in the last five years. In each case, our client
was very happy with the final result of our second search.
