Approach

The DNA MATCH methodology focuses on identifying the perfect candidate – for the job and the company.

Optimal cooperation with DNA Headhunting is initiated with a 360 degree analysis of the company. The company’s history, culture, strategy, as well as the company’s specific character is identified and deciphered. Subsequently, we assess the actual job function and its specific responsibilities, particular duties, organization, KPIs, and critical success factors. Finally, the career path of the ideal candidate is defined as well as the personal qualities required to deliver a positive difference in the job.

All the above presupposes, that we are able to challenge you as a client – and that you want to be challenged. Therefore, you will only meet DNA headhunters who have combined their academic background with an active commercial executive career. As such, you will deal with only one. We consciously work with a “one point of contact” approach keeping your and the candidate’s point of reference simple, efficient, and discrete.
