This also includes Senior Executive Service (SES) and Board selections. 
 
Our consultants have considerable experience in working with our Public Sector partners, carrying out responsibilities such as:

AMARecruit’s skilled consultants utilise clear, transparent processes to ensure an objective audit trail is available throughout each assignment. When assessing information, they complete logical comparisons of data using a rating scale to clearly highlight their approach. Consultants regularly consult with their clients and provide progress updates to ensure project clarity and equanimity.  

Whilst taking into consideration such principles, our consultants are aware that Departments and Agencies have differing needs and objectives. They are therefore able to implement flexibility to ensure individual client needs are met throughout each consignment.
