Our expertise


The assessment process offered by Sirca Executive Search may be applied whenever a company faces an evolution that involves one or several team members.

The situations that Sirca Executive Search experiences most of the times are:

  • Help to evaluate internal or external candidates
  • Detection of high potential
  • Leadership assessment (appraisal of leadership skills, beyond the basic abilities to manage, decide, organize and delegate)
  • Analysis of the professional background
  • Assessment of intercultural compatibility. Today it is no more conceivable to assume that a manager is adaptable to any culture worldwide. To anticipate success and avoid impactful failures with huge human and financial consequences, Sirca Executive Search offers to clients an appraisal of the compatibility of internal or external managers to a certain country or region.

In any case, our process implies a thorough process of review and analysis of the context:

  • Company audit: Analysis of the market, company vision, strategy, ambitions, challenges, objectives, etc. 
  • Review of the functions: job description, scope of responsibilities, organization chart, etc. 
  • Definition of competences, personality and motivation referential

Whether we work on individual or team assessments, our methodology is based on in-depth individual interviews with the concerned people. We usually combine these interviews with a personality inventory test (Sosie©, PerformanSe©, Hogan©) for which all Sirca Executive Search Partners are trained. We may also recommend an Assessment Center with which we have a partnership.
