Signium was established in the Netherlands in the 1980’s. Our Senior Experts work closely together in Practice Groups to assist clients and candidates to make the right decisions at moments of strategic importance.
Our Partnership serves clients internationally by actively introducing colleagues around the world. More than 90% of our search assignments are successfully completed: we are proud 75% of our work is repeat business for the same clients. We are driven by a true Passion for what we do:
Matching Competencies and Expectations in combination with assessing culture and chemistry to make the right fit.
We find the right Board executive C level Officers, VP’s, Directors & Managers for international (Worldwide, European and Regional) positions and -of course- also for local roles in the Netherlands. Throughout the years we have placed Senior Candidates in General Management, Finance, HR, IT, Marketing, R&D, Sales, Supply Chain & Operations positions as well as for Specialist roles such as Corporate Affair, Cybersecurity, Digital, Diversity, Legal Counsel, Project Engineering, QESH and Sustainability.
Diversity is close to our heart as multi-national and diverse teams achieve better performances in an ever changing and rapidly internationalizing world. Seasoned candidates could come from a different sector with similar leadership and/or functional expertise, or a more junior, rising star can be appointed, who will grow in the role with the help of coaching. Alternatively, a more experienced person can be chosen as maturity in a team is required. Gender diversity also contributes to improving team results.
We constantly challenge ourselves to deliver excellent service and have proven capability across a wide variety of industry sectors including:
Consumer (B2C & Out-Of-Home)
Education & Non Profit
Industrial & Manufacturing
Signium is one of the founders of the AESC (Association of Executive Search Consultants) and helped develop -and is still involved in modernizing- the Professional and Ethical standards of our profession.
In the Netherlands we are 1 of only 10 Executive Search Firms approved by the AESC.
