What really makes
us different


We‘re proactive and high on productivity

The firm you hire is your team. You won‘t ever be lost in a maze of bureaucratic layers. You work with skilled consultants and researchers supported by dedicated back office support where needed to provide trends, detailed research, contacts, assessments, coaching and onboarding. We understand both the market and your business, providing an agile, innovative, tailor-made, practical approach; not just an off-the-peg solution.


Owner-managed flexibility and teamwork in a global context

Each AGILIUM WORLDWIDE affiliate is an owner-managed business that emphasizes personal, client-oriented service. That means searches are conducted by experienced consultants who have honed their skills through years of both business and search experience. We interact constantly, sharing knowledge on economies, key sectors, industry information and media publications.


AGILIUM WORLDWIDE clients get the best of both worlds

Clients can expect skilled, personal service combined with the international perspective that is crucial in today‘s marketplace. It‘s a powerful combination.


Broad sector and functional expertise

The structure and flexibility of member firms means we can provide both sector and functional expertise to conduct searches in all major business sectors. As member firms are located in major markets around the world, they are keenly aware of not only critical regional issues, but also broad industry and leadership trends.


We don‘t just meet industry ethical standards. We exceed them.

AGILIUM WORLDWIDE members proudly surpass the ethics and standards established by the pre-eminent industry association.

  • We will not recruit from a client or former client for one year from the end of the client relationship.
  • We define a company-wide off-limits policy as just that — company-wide, not just by division or department.
  • Placed candidates are off limits forever. We will never knowingly recruit anyone a member firm has placed.
