In searching for and evaluating candidates, we use the widely accepted competence assessment model.

Zoom Executive Search provides the following client services:

Search and selection of senior executives

Organizing management talent is the key to its prosperity and success. Today, more than ever, business owners and chief executives are paying special attention to recruiting successful, proven managers with the ability to accept responsibility, resolve complex issues and motivate others in a modern, rapidly changing business environment. Zoom Executive Search helps clients to attract the best leadership capital on the market: senior managers and functional experts, consultants and advisors to guide organizations to success.

Search for independent members of the Board of Directors

Today's companies are very well aware of the importance of the work of the Board of Directors. The search for independent members of the Board of Directors is an extremely demanding and time-consuming task, requiring not only deep knowledge of the market, but also serious analysis of the commercial and competitive processes taking place within it. Zoom ES search consultants have accumulated years of experience that has enabled the successful close of a number of projects involving acting boards, the best international talent and leading Russian experts.

Talent Scouting

When companies have to work in conditions of uncertainty, develop new markets or launch new products and services, access to a reserve talent pool is an expedient option to personnel needs. The formation of a reserve talent pool allows organizations to tap the knowledge of all potential candidates in the labor market and / or within an organization to achieve strategic goals set by management while not committing to hiring suitable candidates immediately. Often, leaders requiring such a service have a good idea of what kind of manager is needed to successfully solve specific problems ​​and who the strong managers in their market are.
ZOOM Executive Search/Boyden conducts thorough market research and analysis for the client, who then receives a professional database with details of all the potential candidates in the industry and / or functional specialization.

our principles
The best solution for the customer
We search for the best of all possible solutions for our clients on the market for management talent. We are not just looking for talent - we carefully study talent parameters for industries and positions and collect complete biographical and performance information about potential candidates, their strengths and weaknesses, to present the client with the best possible information to make an informed decision.
Commitment to our clients
ZOOM Executive Search/Boyden is the most customer-oriented search firm on the market. We prefer working with a small number of clients, giving everyone as much time and attention as needed.

Openness
We are interested in finding professionals who not only match client profiles, but who will enjoy their work, remain with the company for the long haul and develop professionally to be successful and deliver advantage. To achieve this, we approach clients with an open attitude about a variety of options to maximize value in hiring decisions. We don't sell resumes – we offer business solutions for human capital. Only an open and transparent selection process - when both the client and candidate are able to weigh all the pros and cons of a new relationship - can guarantee a candidate will have a positive, reliable and long-term relationship with the hiring company and effectively resolve the responsibilities he or she is entrusted with to grow professionally with the employer.
