Slava assists its Clients in the crucially important task of identification, evaluation and selection of management personnel.

Friisberg & Partners (Switzerland), as well as a member of IIC Partners, one of the leading world-wide executive search networks with offices in over 25 countries and nearly 100 consultants.
Our search process is highly professional and precisely targeted. Our efforts are not directed towards the people who may apply to us in search of placement. We investigate the labour market and identify successful individuals who meet the position specifications and who, as a rule, are not looking for a job.
Our consultants facilitate in making a selection by arranging interviews, tests, references, and by acting as the intermediary in negotiation. We provide thorough follow-up on all placements and maintain regular contacts with both the Client and the newly placed manager, remaining at their disposal to help in solving problems which may emerge during the first six months after the new manager is hired.
Members of our Firm strictly follow the code of professional ethics. We keep all information, pertaining our Clients and Candidates in strict confidence. We never work with companies who are direct competitors. We continue working on the Assignment until a satisfactory solution to the problem has been found. We will not approach any member of a Client company on behalf of another Client for a period of not less than two years after completion of the latest assignment.
While fulfilling an Assignment we work only on an exclusive basis. We put every effort towards building a stable long-term relationship with our Clients with nearly 80% of our assignments coming from these clients.
Our professional fees for Executive Search assignments are defined in writing and accepted by clients before the work on the assignment starts. Our fees are determined by such factors as the level of the position to be filled, the anticipated difficulties in finding and attracting the right candidate, the time required to bring about the solution and geographical area to be investigated. (Expenses in connection with the assignment are also charged, and these usually run between 5% to .20% of our fees). We do not accept assignments on a contingency basis.
Should the employment contract with a new employee be terminated within the first six months upon starting, Slava will repeat the entire Search and Selection process without additional fees.
