“I first engaged Paul and the Intrinsic Executive Search team in the early days of Demandware, as we were building our European team. From that first engagement, I was deeply impressed with the level of professionalism and diligence they exhibited in helping us to find those critical initial hires. Since that time, they’ve proved to be an invaluable partner as we scaled our team throughout Europe and North America, on the journey to an IPO and ultimately an acquisition by Salesforce.
I wholeheartedly recommend Intrinsic as an executive search partner for any high growth technology business looking to add critical operational leadership. This is a team that digs in to really understand your business, your culture and your specific requirements. They do their homework and consistently deliver top notch talent. A+”
I must tell you a story. I happened to be hunted for 3 different roles the very same week (not the usual). By 3 different recruiters in type and in manners. One was a cutting edge online AI powered plateform with automated workflows for recruiters to call, the second was an “experienced” french SME HR manager, the third being Paul. The 3 roles were different but all attractive in their own way. But the recruiting experience was by far exceeded by Paul. Not only did he listen to my expectations, answered my questions but also supported and coached me to win it as he was convinced that his client and myself would be a match. The other two recruiters had no chance to win me in : The online platform people were attached to processes which pushed me off while the HR manager had me run 3 Zoom interviews, promising me her answer before Xmas. I’m still waiting for it. Paul is the reason why my employer is having me today. And I am grateful as the role is perfect.
This illustrates the difficulty for both companies and candidates to match in 2021. Despite technology or level of HR maturity, recruiting is not just a mission, it requires talent. Paul French and Intrinsic Executive Search are showing excellency and efficiency at all stage. Trust me, you can trust them.
