A successful career requires long-term planning. Our consultants regularly visit leading universities and business schools around the world to come in contact with students already at an early stage. More experienced professionals, we address directly or through various networks. We accompany candidates from the time of first contact, offer help in all aspects of career planning, and value a long-term relationship with them.

Services

  • Analysis of career history and professional goals in a personal conversation
  • Realistic assessment of potential paths and prospects for the realization of the objectives
  • Presentation matching opportunities among current search mandates of our clients
  • Introduction of a candidate to the client officer responsible for hiring
  • Preparation for the interview and accompanying the entire application process

Who we look for

Senior Professionals
Innovation and changes within enterprises often require the lateral hire of an external top manager. GRiP provides management positions in companies such as executive and non-executive directors.

Junior Managers
For professionals with a couple of years of professional experience GRiP offers a wide range of options to lead their career further. Often a move makes sense from professional services to corporate or entrepreneurial positions, which include personnel management and / or profit and loss responsibility.

Young Professionals
A flattening of the learning curve is typically a signal for re-orientation. Here we can point out challenges in a new environment for further professional and personal development. For example, we often accompany young professionals when moving from consulting to industry or from investment banking to private equity.

Students & Graduates
Entry level positions for graduates in areas such as private equity, venture capital or as executive assistants are rare and not often visible in the job market. We can offer an already early insight into such areas through internships with our clients. All year round we are looking for outstanding graduates with excellent degrees and relevant first experiences. Furthermore, we outline options and ways to build a long term career in the desired functions and industries.
