In 1997, together with three colleagues from France and Germany, our Directors were the key drivers behind the formation of CFR Global Executive Search. From those small beginnings, CFR has grown into an international alliance of Executive Search Consultancies strategically located around the globe. We provide global reach with local expertise, which enables us to manage your international recruitment requirements as well. Since its founding, our global network has grown to 33 member companies operating from 28 countries and 59 offices around the world. Membership is based on our shared values and we are used to working on multi-country Search & Selection assignments.
International Project Management
We co-ordinate and project-manage assignments with our CFR partners to provide our clients with local knowledge of different geographic markets. So whether you want to broaden the candidate market, or target a specific geographical area or you have a role that will be based outside the UK, we can help.
Our colleagues around the world are regional specialists, with expert knowledge of their local markets. Once we have an understanding of your organisation and the specific requirements of the role, our consultant will co-ordinate the project. After connecting you with our colleague in the appropriate country, we will be on hand as Project Manager, maintaining regular contact and supporting the process from initial briefing through to appointment and beyond into post-placement.
