Benefits from working with us

We will only supply you the most suitable candidates that we have effectively evaluated through our own network of high quality recruits or that we have selected and interviewed from a vast multitude of potential recruits from a set of search channels, including social media channels.

We have the ability to bring you the best result in the desired time frame – we manage schedules, even tight ones.

We know how to present and “sell” the position and your company to the applicants in a compelling and motivating manner starting with an experience of writing compelling job adverts.

Regular updates on the entire recruitment process ensure all parties feel enthusiastic and actively involved.

Our reputation as a quality recruiting partner to our clients is uncompromised.


We offer you excellent networks of potential employees, we never start from scratch

We set the highest standards for our recruitment processes and results both in recruitments and personnel leasing. The applicants we evaluate must be suitable in terms of their professional competence, ability to co-operate, motivation and service-focused attitude.

We take into account education, experience and a desire for continuous learning. But certificates only prove so much and an interview allows us to truly evaluate the applicant’s suitability for the position.

Thus we only present our clients with candidates that we have interviewed and evaluated ourselves – candidates we can fully and genuinely recommend!

Our consultants are experienced and expert professionals with the insight and ability to meet the demands of the most demanding recruitment situations.

Different clients have different expectations and requirements. Therefore we offer our clients different recruitment processes for different purposes:


Recruitment Solution –
Search and Selection

We set the highest standards for our recruitment

Our Search and Selection is in most cases so called Hybrid Search which combines our own networks and contacts as well as advertising. The Hybrid Search reaches a large audience and is a very quick process. It is ideal for when you want to recruit the employee quickly, easily and according to the best recruitment standards.

The Network Search draws on our own networks and contacts and does not involve advertising.

You can also request that Businesslike performs only part of the recruitment process, for example the preliminary evaluation and interviews based on the replies to a job advert. Please do not hesitate to ask us for further assistance or more information about this service – we are here to help you find the right solution.


Recruitment Solution –
Recruit and Retain

Convenient recruitment

Recruit and Retain is a unique successful recruitment model that ideally suits for many cases. We take care of the recruitment process by offering our supervision and assistance during a test period you and the employee both agree upon.

We regularly communicate with the employee to see how they are performing and if they are happy and fulfilled in their new position. If either party has questions or an issue they wish to resolve, we can be the ideal pivotal middle-man, who will always try our utmost to resolve the situation in a refined professional manner.

At the end of the employee’s initial trial period of their new role, they can be recruited into the company as a permanent employee. The trial period gives both the company and the employee time to make sure that they have both made the right choice.
