The Recruitment Process
Based on many years’ experience, ProSelection has developed a particularly thorough and effective recruitment process. Our process involves seven different stages.
Stage 1 - Defining the role and position
Our first meeting with you – where the process is agreed and set in motion. We get to know your company, and we agree on your future employee’s level of professional expertise and personal characteristics.
Stage 2 – Candidate Recruitment
We use all of the well-established and proven methods for promoting the position and contacting the best candidates. This involves marketing the position towards active and passive candidates in the following ways:
- Searching within our own database of more than 17,000 qualified accounting and finance candidates
- Searching via LinkedIn and other networks
- Advertising on job portals such as Jobindex, Jobnet, Jobzonen, Ofir & Stepstone
- Advertising on LinkedIn and Twitter
- Advertising through our own job agent at Proselection.dk
Using these methods, we contact the best-suited candidates for the position, and we issue polite rejection notices to the other candidates.
Stage 3 - Selection
All candidates recommended for the available position have been thoroughly vetted and approved by ProSelection based on their professional expertise and personal characteristics. This streamlined and consistent selection process includes:
An in-depth interview focusing on their personal and professional characteristics
Review of references
Verification of qualifications and review of potential criminal record
Various relevant finance tests depending on the candidate’s level
Stage 4 - Presentation
We present the best-suited candidates for the position, which typically involves recommending two to four candidates for you to interview. The presentation material includes the candidate’s professional abilities, pay expectations and an in-depth personality description. This, together with the candidate’s CV, means you get a complete picture of the candidate’s competencies, so that you are well-prepared for the interview.
Stage 5 - Interviews
The candidate interviews are typically held at your company by you or relevant colleagues. ProSelection will assist with all the necessary practicalities and coordination of the interviews.
Stage 6 - Recruitment
When you have made your selection, the candidate is given a job offer based on an employment contract prepared by your company. All candidates provided by ProSelection are included within our guarantee. This means that another candidate will be sourced if the first candidate does not meet your expectations. ProSelection offers the longest guarantee in the market of up to 24 months.
Stage 7 - Follow-up
Customer and candidate satisfaction are of the highest priority for us at ProSelection, which is why we follow up on the candidate’s employment and progress in the months following his or her appointment.
"We contacted ProSelection when we faced a generation change in our finance department and wanted to hire a CFO to modernize and strengthen our financial management. After a meeting with ProSelection, we handed over the process to them. They handled the process very professionally and soon found an exciting field of highly qualified candidates. Within a few weeks, we had recruited our new CFO, who today is performing very well in the organization.”
Carsten Abel, Managing director,
“For eight years, we have had an excellent collaboration with ProSelection in the selection of qualified employees for our finance department. It was therefore natural for us to give them responsibility for once again finding our new CFO. After a qualified and relatively flexible process, we have reached an agreement with our new CFO within a very short time horizon.”
CEO Henning Hess,
“We have used ProSelection to recruit our entire finance team. Our cooperation started when we needed a Finance Manager. ProSelection was good at listening and asking questions, and it was our absolute impression that it was of importance to them to understand our company, our culture and the positions’ requirements. We experienced a professional process which resulted in the right candidate for us. We later hired a Finance Controller and a Finance Assistant through ProSelection too, and the processes were just as effective and good and resulted in two strong employees, who are exactly what we were looking for. ARKK Copenhagen gives ProSelection and their services a warm recommendation.”
Co-founder & CEO Thomas Refdahl
”ProSelection has helped us finding our new team leader for our payroll department through a professional and discrete process. We now have a strong employee who is not only skilled and capable of managing all aspects of the position, it is also an employee who personally is a very good match to our company.
CFO Niklas Nordkap
”ProSelection helped us with two recruitments in a period where we did not have the resources to cover our recruitment needs. We have been very happy and satisfied with the process at ProSelection, and we have been professionally treated all the way through. ProSelection presented us to a strong field of candidates and we actually had a difficult time choosing amongst them. Now we have two skilled accountants and both fully live up to our expectations.”
Department Manager Janne Frederiksen
Roskilde Tekniske Skole
”After a successful recruitment some years ago, we decided to contact ProSelection again, when we were faced with a need for a new business controller. The process occurred again professional and hassle-free, as we were presented with a selection of talented candidates, all of which were good candidates for the position. We found a new employee who now has started with us and we are very satisfied.”
