Hire right.

  • ​​We engaged Edith and the team at Freshminds to help us on a search for a very specific individual combining both strategic and execution skills. We have done this after our organic search yielded a few applicants which we were not set on. Given the importance of the role we were seeking for the perfect candidate, both fit and competent.  The team at Freshminds helped us narrow a candidate list to a select few demonstrating a clear understanding of our requirements. We ended up hiring the top candidate who hit the ground running and was a great match with our culture. I am delighted to recommend the Freshminds team and won’t hesitate to use them again.
