Silent Recruiting

Sometimes a direct search agency receives assignments on which they can’t communicate. This can be for all sort of reasons. Think a strategic expansion, a replacement,… in these case discretion is required. We call this silent recruiting.

If you are looking for a new opportunity in our industry, but the open vacancies are not your cup of tea, please do reach out to Luc or Noel via one of the buttons on the right

We might have that dream opportunity for you, but we just can’t talk about it publicly.
