We assist our clients in the search, selection, integration and development of Executives, Senior Executives, Technical Experts, Engineers, Sales and Support Functions.

Since we created SP SEARCH in 2003, we have been focusing on technology innovation and this has enabled  us to anticipate the cyber security “bubble” that has since brought the market under strain.

The shortage of highly qualified professionals, whose demand keeps growing, has made recruitment processes increasingly complex. A salary race is clearly underway.

Our human-sized firm gives us complete freedom to provide bespoke solutions in order to target and recruit your future talents.

At the same time, we like to improve our level of service by regularly confronting the opinion of our clients and candidates. As part of an evaluation, our clients gave us in 2019 the highest rating (9.4/10) for the reliability and consistency of our communications. The reactivity and professionalism of our consultants have also been praised.

As for the candidates, 93% of them rewarded us for the quality of following them-up, our support and our in-depth understanding of their sector.

How about discussing together your next recruitment project?
