We specialize in understanding the unique culture of each of our clients and strive to find the most fitting candidates that will blend effortlessly into our client's organization.  

Working with AIMS Egypt, clients will be offered a unique exective search approach supported by:

Recruitment

Our recruitment and executive search activities are based on partnering with our clients in reaching the optimum outcome.  That means acquiring an in-depth understanding of the role and the market, conducting an extensive search including in-depth interviews, submission of initial and final short list, and providing follow up with all parties until successful completion of the assignment.

Any assignment has its own demands and criteria and we treat each assignment with individual attention to match those demands and criteria as closely as we can.

In order to achieve the above we have an extensive and updated database of candidates (80,000+ candidates from Egypt), as well as using targeted head hunting activities, networking, recommendations and referrals, and media advertising to maximize our chances for successful outcomes.

We also pride ourselves on our consultative role in the whole process:  we are there to advise on cultural and educational issues, market conditions, remuneration levels, and salary negotiations on behalf of both parties.

The ethical and partnering approach to our work gives us an edge over market competition and has earned us such accolades as “professional, honest, perseverant, discreet and excellent follow up”.
