Developing a comprehensive understanding of your organisation is key. We need to understand your goals, the company culture as well as the specific requirements for the appointment. We like to look at our work with you as a collaboration – based on a close partnership. Because we feel this leads to the best results. So we draw up a specific search universe together, defining the overall direction of the search.
We believe that in today’s rapidly changing competitive environment, our clients gain a significant advantage if they are open to new ways of finding their employees of tomorrow. Simply searching in your current country and industry is in many cases not enough. Expanding the search to neighbouring countries or regions, or even searching for expertise globally, gives much more impact to the search process and leads to far better results.
To ensure the effectiveness of multi-country and international search assignments, Horton International leverages the strength of our global network. Typically, a project team comprises consultants from countries where the search is being conducted and who understand both the local and global context in which the search will take place.
Plus, we involve consultants with specific industry expertise. Our multi-country assignments are coordinated and orchestrated by a Lead Consultant who acts as the primary contact with the client – and who is involved until the assignment’s successful completion. Throughout the whole process: We listen closely. We react quickly, we take the task at hand personally. Our Lead Consultant is constantly in touch with our researchers and consultants who assess market availability, use comparative benchmarking and find candidates who not only have the required experience and expertise, but are the best cultural fit with the organisation.

Sometimes it’s important to look a little further afield. Horton experts work for you in more than 40 offices all around the world – to find the perfect candidate for your company. So how exactly do we do it?
After a successful candidate has been appointed and begun his or her assignment, our role isn’t over. To ensure a smooth integration into your organisation and to achieve the best possible performance, we keep in contact with both the candidate and the client. Because we believe it is not just our job to place an individual at the right job; it is our job to build and develop relationships that last.
Thanks to our multi-country search our customers gain significant advantages. Here are just some of the benefits our clients experience:
