    ITGS Executive Search

    ITGS Executive Search specializes in the recruitment of leaders and business professionals in the IT & Digital industry. Our recognized expertise? Securing the recruitment of key people for senior executive positions. Our preferred acronyms have only a few letters - CxO, VP - and include CEO, COO, CMO, CSO, CIO, CTO...

    Recruiting, the first act of management

    A key act. A failure in 2/3 of the cases.

    Recruiting is a complex task that requires many time and skills - formalize and prioritize a need, define and execute a sourcing strategy, activate networks, motivate candidates, evaluate their soft skills, motivations, cultural fit, check information, negotiate, prepare onboarding... Managers and recruiters are not skilled to succeed alone. And working in pairs adds complexity.

    Recruitment for a key position: no room for error!

    Because the cost of a mistake is huge.

    Recruiting a CxO or a VP is a strategic move. Making a mistake is very costly (recruitment, integration, training, ramp-up, dismissal, new recruitment, etc.). But the real costs are hidden and they are huge: delay in reaching objectives, damaged brand image, loss of customers and partners confidence, employees reduced motivation, significant advantage for competitors...

    Securing strategic recruitments

    Secure [syn.] "go through a search and get a candidate to sign"?

    Yes, but not only that! Securing means not being wrong about needs and priorities. It also means being efficient and qualitative, finding creative and relevant solutions, giving choice, respecting constraints... Most importantly, it means recruiting the right person who will be motivated, successful in their job, who will take responsibility and who will be a long-term employee.

    Expert recruitment consultancy

    ...as an anti-failure weapon.

    What would be the essential ingredients to secure strategic recruitments? Business and recruitment expertise, a great deal of experience, consulting approach, proven know-how, committed team, excellent reputation... What for? To be able to question, challenge and advise hiring managers ; to identify, qualify and convince candidates. That's a lot? Yes, and it's ITGS!
