Recruiting shouldn’t be transactional. For us, its an enduring partnership that’s measured by genuine mutual success.
Philosophy - People come first. Our word is our bond. We are reliable, we are serious about service. We are assertive by working hard and smart.
Enthusiasm - It is the greatest asset. It overwhelms challenges and objectives. It is contagious and creates momentum. It creates higher productivity and brings results.
Appreciation - We appreciate our opportunities. Nothing sparks enthusiasm like appreciation. We show our appreciation by being a premium recruitment supplier. Big enough to deliver; small enough to care.
We pride ourselves on the efficiency of our process, selecting candidates that are recommended
by their peers and considered to be true professionals, highly skilled. Our matchmaking skills
include vetting and offering an honest profile of no more than 5 top candidates. You will not
throw resumes against the wall to see what sticks.
Scalable recruitment solutions that help our clients identify, attract, recruit and hire top talent in a more cost effective manner.
From culture, scope and sourcing strategies, our solutions delivered are custom and unique, based around each client’s specific needs. Issues such as a changing business environment, staff limitations, processes and time lines can negatively impact a well-planned hiring program and lead to undesirable results. Whether it’s for two positions, or restructure of an entire department or management system, we will lay out strategies that deliver. The economies of scale and scope arise from a larger staff of recruiters, databases of candidate resumes, and investment in tools and networks. Companies pay by structured fees, avoiding under-utilization of recruitment staff when activity is low.
Resumes rarely find jobs – Athena recruitment does
Contingency recruiting is a model companies often use for filling middle management, sales and technical positions. At Athena, we treat contingency candidates with the same discretion and professionalism as with other search options, and we can utilize contingency recruitment to help you fully realize your career ambitions. As an employer, we will bring you a number of candidates to choose from, concentrating on those with interpersonal skills and a talent set to fit your requirements.
Retained executive search represents a clear commitment from both sides and sends a strong message that the hiring company highly values the opportunity.
Retained search is particularly appropriate when time, complexity and confidentiality are critical, when the hire will have a significant impact on company performance, or new opportunities emerge that must be quickly addressed. We understand and thrive in that environment. We only present retained search opportunities that truly fit with the needs and the goals of both the candidates and the hiring company. As such, we consistently provide the best in speed, quality and successful performance outcomes.
We want our company to be an extension of yours, as a candidate’s first impression of your company
often comes from us.
Because we genuinely care that we bring the right candidates to the spotlight, we take the necessary time to understand your specific needs, culture and future direction of your company.
