Through detailed face-to-face interviews and assessment covering key skills and competencies, we pull together a longlist of potential candidates to present to the client.

Step 4 – Candidate Selection

Once a shortlist of candidates has been agreed, candidates will be interviewed by relevant parties at the client, while Agentis International manages the process.

Client Testimonials

We retained Agentis International to lead our sales and marketing leadership recruitment efforts throughout EMEA. They did an excellent job in working with the Executive team and Human Resources in identifying and credibly approaching senior sales and marketing professionals and in helping us to hire a number of high calibre individuals. Their knowledge of the software industry and enterprise-wide selling environment, coupled with their well-honed headhunting skills and outstanding communications ability, were key factors that led to our Company acquiring some highly capable talent.
SVP WW Sales – Global Enterprise Software Vendor
As a young and dynamic company, we needed an organisation that could represent us in the market professionally and who understood our specific needs. Agentis International are very well connected. They deliver qualified vetted candidates and are a breath of fresh air compared to other recruitment companies. They understand the enterprise market and in-depth the key requisites of the roles and deliver strong candidates that have an immediate impact on our business.
GM EMEA / Global Security company
I have worked with Agentis International since 2015. The team has helped me hire over a dozen leaders and individual contributors. Their ability to narrow the field for MD, VP and Director level hires is truly impressive. Their recruiting ability crosses over from traditional technology hires to cloud services companies. I would highly recommend Agentis International.
VP Global HR – Global Technology Company
Agentis International proved themselves to be highly capable in supporting me and in helping plan, manage and execute our growth internationally. Their highly proactive and professional approach has gained them enormous credibility and respect with senior management and added real value to our business. Agentis International became in very short timescale, trusted advisors to the Vice President European Operations and their judgment was relied upon in myriad ways in addition to executing Executive Searches for us, including organizational planning, staffing strategy, competitive intelligence and leadership candidate assessment. I would recommend Agentis International strongly, particularly to those technology organizations seeking to grow their international business.
VP Global Recruiting – eCommerce software vendor
Agentis International has recently helped our Group CEO search for and recruit a Managing Director. I was very impressed by their knowledge of our business and the contacts they had inside the industry. Within a short period of time they had presented us with a short-list of candidates, all of exceptional calibre and highly motivated. We secured our first choice candidate who has proven a fantastic recruit and are extremely satisfied with the service that we received. We recommend Agentis International very highly.
