Exploratory meetings

At La tête chercheuse, we’re continually meeting professionals with interesting profiles. These exploratory meetings allow us to get to know them, pinpoint their underlying motives, and help them determine what kind of corporate culture suits them best. It’s a unique and proactive method that gives us a better understanding of the market. It’s proven to be particularly effective: 42% of placed candidates come from exploratory meetings.

Human data

Data is king. That’s why we maintain a database of about 25,000 professionals – enough data to paint a complete and accurate picture of the evolution of talent in the industries we cover. This unique database is just one of the tools we use to find the perfect candidates, and quickly.
Our team truly masters the art of gathering data: Boolean searches, social media, market research: no stones are left unturned to find the right candidates.

Our team is made up of professionals with varied backgrounds, picked from the fields in which we recruit. We approach every mandate with complementary points of view and perspectives, and always with a solid understanding of that industry.

We can simply be the extension of your human resources department to allow you to focus on your organizational challenges.
