Our clients operate in globalised markets, and as such come to us where the international dimension of the search is most important. For some search assignments, the scarcity of expertise is such that a transnational approach is called for, even where the position to be filled is headquarters-based. Others seek the expertise of their trusted search partner for assignments involving foreign markets.
Few Executive Search firms are structured to respond fully to these needs. Too often, local counterpart firms are entrusted with this assignment, which means that the client doesn’t benefit from the wealth of knowledge possessed by the consultant that usually leads national search assignments.
The teams at Synapse Executive Search have developed their experience on the ground. Over the years, they have undertaken numerous search assignments in Europe, North America, South-east Asia and Latin America, but also – and most importantly – in areas to be considered too complex for large search networks: the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Central Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
Synapse has built its approach and tools around this operational experience so that its clients get the most out of this wealth of experience. This means that clients work with their usual and trusted search partner, regardless of the location of the position and the origin of the candidate.
Drawing on the existing expertise of research specialists experienced in complex international assignments, we undertake an initial screening of candidates via video or phone conference. We then make a point of meeting interesting candidates on site in person, before presenting them to you.
