After the stagnation of the 90s, the industrial sector of the Russian economy started to develop rapidly, and many western companies entered the market as well. It is this area that has one of the highest demands for experienced staff who are familiar with a particular industry, and they are in very short supply. Quite commonly such professionals have to be sought from abroad, which increases the difficulty of selection, and means that those responsible for personnel selection must have a high degree of professionalism.
The Industry Department consists of eight consultants, each of whom have more than five years’ experience in the industrial sector. The department has set up a database which includes more than 30,000 specialists who work either in Russia or abroad.
The professionalism of our consultants, who maintain close links with the leading market specialists, and also our substantial database, enable this department to undertake the most complex searches in a short timeframe.
Over the last year the department has fulfilled more than 100 orders for the selection of personnel at varying levels.
