Recruitment by mandate

The staff shortage in Switzerland increases the complexity, duration and costs of recruitment, particularly for demanding roles such as specialist, manager or executive. We can advise you and help you to find the best profile for your organisational structure while sparing you time-consuming and expensive processes and ensuring complete confidentiality.

Experience and success

When you assign us to recruit an executive or specialist, we always take your corporate culture and business strategy into account as well as the reason underlying the recruitment such as restructuring, an urgent need to fill a position or creating a new unit. This shared understanding of the environment of your position is key to the success of the mandate. 

We operate in all sectors from life sciences to manufacturing, trading to construction, finance to engineering, pharmaceuticals to banking and insurance, and many more. By choosing to entrust  Manpower with a recruitment mandate, you are also choosing a reliable partner who knows your sector and can guarantee a high standard of quality.

you will find candidates using sourcing methods and tried-and-tested processes
