Executive Search

The most exciting candidates: These are often not those who are looking for a new challenge on their own initiative. They are often those who are still under contract. But how can you get an overview and find out who is doing a great job in which position? And what is the best way to get in touch with the most promising ones? Last but not least: How do you find out how much basic salary and bonuses such executives usually receive depending on the position and the  region? We at HILL International know. And we will be happy to support you in the extremely demanding mission of executive search.
