Summit performs a thorough review of the job description and meets with HR/hiring manager to confirm the wish list, candidate profile, unique attributes etc. Summit will not present a candidate for the sake of doing so. The team also provides regular updates on the search progress. Summit also takes the time to ensure a solid understanding the business and culture which has resulted in candidates who fit well within the organization. We have been extremely happy with the candidates we have hired (professional level and above - up to executive level roles) and their feedback on the Summit recruitment experience has been equally positive. They turn over every leaf and always provide us with candid feedback and sound market observations. You will be in good hands if you trust Summit Search Group with your hiring needs.
