Several times CTER  provided us with invaluable support during recruitment of suitable persons for the most exposed positions in Capgemini Polska. Recruitment projects which we commission do not belong to easy ones: on principle these are extremely demanding profiles that are difficult to access, but due to cooperation with CTER we have finalized in the recent period of time several employments on the level of director/VP. In the case of one recruitment project, a precisely developed shortlist of candidates allowed even for an additional employment.

I have had an opportunity to cooperate with CTER for several years on managerial recruitment projects after the company was taken over by CVC Capital Partners fund. CTER quickly learnt our firm, and recognized challenges faced by the managers and our business. Candidates recommended by CTER are well selected to suit the needs of our business, as well as the culture that we are creating in our company. I value CTER not only for their professionalism, but also for flexible cooperation and good partnership-based atmosphere.

When I need a reliable company which will really source that one exceptional person to meet all competence criteria, with values compatible to our firm’s organizational culture, I choose CTER. In CTER there are no accidental choices, no candidates taken straight out the database solely in order to somehow make them fit the project. Everything is well thought-out, well-tuned, polished. Reliability, cooperation, in-depth recognition of the client and their needs not just for show, but in earnest. Honesty, diligence and attention to the search for that best person for a given project (a person, not just a candidate) - that is CTER.

After 10 years, the recruitment conducted together with Piotr is worth 500 million PLN of revenue with a handsome margin. What more could one add? 🙂

I have been cooperating with CTER for several years. It is a very professional firm which helped us acquire excellent professionals, and on top of that it is a team of nice people with whom it is a pleasure to work. Usually I was commissioning their services, but I also had the pleasure to be recruited for a project which they conducted. This, I can vouch that they take equally good care of their clients and their candidates.

I have cooperated with CTER consultants for several years now. I know that recruitment processes entrusted to them are conducted by professionals in that field with utmost attention to detail – the ongoing communication related to the project’s status and the detailed analysis of needs and expectations provide clients with assurance that finding the best candidate is of crucial importance for the consultants. I value the current information on the situation on the market, delivered by consultants throughout cooperation. I am fully convinced that I can recommend CTER as a professional, reliable and credible business partner. Committed consultants, full of passion and diligent in accessing information on the sourced candidates – that is CTER’s best showcase.

I have been cooperating with CTER since 2005. Together, we have conducted nearly 20 recruitment projects extremely important for our organization. In recruitment, it is crucial to understand the firm’s – and the position’s - needs, to reach out to suitable people and find the candidate that fits best to the given organization’s duties and culture. All of this we get from CTER consultants every time, together with excellent cooperation, prompt actions and professionalism. Apart from conducting recruitment projects, CTER assists us in other aspects of the labor market, both on domestic and international level. It would be hard to imagine a more reliable, wise and trustworthy partner in the process of selection of employees for a company.

The history of cooperation between Orange Polska and CTER goes back to 2004. Over that period of time CTER had an opportunity to conduct for us recruitment projects for all types of positions, from top directors’ positions to mid-level management and experts. Over that period of time, we jointly completed several dozen recruitment projects – with full success. Our experiences from cooperation with CTER demonstrate that this firm excels in its efficiency, extensive knowledge of the labor market and very high commitment to realization of commissioned projects. Consultants with whom we had an opportunity to cooperate recognized our needs well, selected appropriate tools that allowed to diagnose competencies properly and achieve good fit of candidates to Orange, a well as remained in continuous contact with recruitment managers and HR teams. An additional value is the person of Managing Director, Mr. Piotr Goliński, who has been successfully advising us in recruitment projects for years, basing on his expertise, knowledge of the market and business experience. I would like to stress that CTER is an organization which aims at long-term partnership. We can recommend CTER as a reliable partner for conducting direct search and recruitment of Candidates. The to-date cooperation with CTER has given us substantial satisfaction.

I had an opportunity to cooperate with CTER during recruitment for the position of General Directors of Aflofarm agencies in Romania and Czechia, and it was an exceptionally positive business experience. Not only because during that project I had the full conviction that the firm (on the level of cooperation with the office in Poland, as well as with offices in Romania and Czechia) efficiently and capably conducted the project, but, most of all, it also fully understood the needs of the firm which I represented and my needs as a person who would be the supervisor of the recruited candidates. And not only on the basic level of company culture or the type of business model – but on that very soft one, related to character and mentality. These were very professional, yet open and direct discussions as to who and why to select, touching upon all possible aspects which could have influence on the efficiency of recruitment, with no exceptions. Up till the present day we are very satisfied with the persons chosen during that recruitment process.
Paweł Tomczak
Head of Foreign Markets Operations, Aflofarm
We have cooperated with CTER for over 15 years. In many respects our organization differs from all the others. We have an atypical organizational structure and as a result, need exceptional managers. We always look for ambitious, energetic and scrupulously honest long-distance runners. Because there are not too many such persons on the market, for years we have reached out to CTER for assistance, especially in recruitment of key value for us. Why is that so? Firstly, CTER understands our specificity, secondly, CTER is able to search out and recognize our future leaders, and finally, CTER brings added value by sharing their knowledge about the market or advising us at the final stage, when together we determine which of the candidates to present with the employment offer. CTER is professional, efficient and credible. It happens that we do not agree, it happens that we go through a harder situation, but until now, we have always managed to find a solution that would satisfy both parties. We simply respect and trust each other.
Maciej Górny
Member of the Board of Directors, General Partner, HBH
I started to cooperate with CTER last year, in connection with a recruitment project for the market of Eastern Europe. The process of recruitment was very difficult, as it demanded coordination of cooperation and communication between CTER in Poland, Russia and our company. Moreover, the profile of candidates we searched for was exacting and not easy to source. From the beginning our cooperation went very well: setting out and coordination of the process, regular, transparent communication, reliability in sourcing the candidates and, most importantly, appropriately selected candidates, convinced me and my coworkers to commission further projects to CTER on the territory of Poland. Next recruitment projects confirmed our previous experience. An additional asset is consulting at every stage of the recruitment process and friendly, partnership-based atmosphere of cooperation.

I have had the pleasure of cooperating with CTER for a couple of years now. Since the very beginning, the cooperation was constructed on the part of CTER on the basis of understanding the client’s needs, specificity of the organization for which they work and the culture of mutual trust and support. This created a strong foundation for cooperation that has already lasted for quite a long time.

Łukasz Zieliński
Global Supply Management, EMEA & SA Director, Nexteer Automotive
I had the exceptional pleasure of cooperating with Mr. Piotr Goliński and CTER during one of the recruitment projects in which I participated. The fact that it ended with a success for myself, my employer and CTER, is certainly significant from the point of view my evaluation of the cooperation with Mr. Goliński, but it should not eliminate an objective assessment of this cooperation. And it was exceptionally pleasant. The recruitment process based, to a significant extent, on long conversations during which we touched upon issues ranging from directly related to the position for which I applied, to absolutely abstract ones. Such approach guarantees that Mr. Goliński, using his intuition, is able to select an ideal candidate for the future employer, while possibly even more important than all the "hard" skills are all the "human" aspects, such as communication style, system of values, personal development vision, etc. The final result of the process was, naturally, the hiring, but the best testimony to the job well done was the cooperation between my new employer and myself over the following months, quarters and years, which led to an excellent relationship. Summing up, I am very favorably impressed by cooperation with Mr. Goliński and I can very gladly recommend his services, both as a recruited candidate, and as person commissioning recruitment projects.

I can recommend CTER with full confidence as a firm that can be trusted throughout this extremely important process that a change of employment constitutes. I had an opportunity to participate in a process that was not entirely in agreement with my professional development plans, but as soon as a suitable offer came up, CTER contacted me again and I finally found myself at a different place. During the whole process I could count on close contact with the consultants, up-to-date information and a general sense of comfort as to where we were at in the process. I recommend this firm!

I had an opportunity to take part in one of the recruitment processes conducted by CTER. It was not an easy decision. Changing the employer after more than ten years spent in one organization is always a source of stress and uncertainty. I have to admit that CTER consultants turned out to be good companions and partners throughout that process. Available, they provided feedback and accurate information as to the subsequent stages of the process, were supportive and trustworthy. We have remained in touch for many months after I started to feel at home in the new place and new organization.

Partners' Recommendations

I partnered with Piotr at CTER to collaborate on an Executive Search assignment for one of my manufacturing clients who has an international footprint. We worked on an HR Director role where the candidate would likely be based out of Poland rather than the UK. Piotr and team provided quality candidates that were thoroughly researched and we made a successful placement. I would have no hesitation in working with Piotr again.

As member of Intersearch Worldwide Organization of executive search firms I had the chance of working with my Polish colleagues from CTER on several occasions in both roles: either introducing clients who were needing search and consultancy services in Poland or operating projects in Romania on behalf of clients introduced by CTER on cross border assignments.

What is most extraordinary in working with Joanna, Piotr or Klara is their complete understanding of clients‘ needs and their ability to adapt fast to answer those. When working on common assignments or needing local information to support our customers, CTER team always supported us in a timely and friendly manner with no reduction in quality.

They all are the type of business consulting professionals who know how to put everyone at ease the moment any of them enters the room. CTER’s team are diligent about collecting information and insist on developing custom solutions to give a very helpful insight. Most importantly, CTER’s team always indicates the practical applications their work has for clients ‘organization and act today with future consequences in mind which brings incontestable value added to any client. Most probably this is one of the reasons they are one of the top consultancies in Poland.

Each member of CTER’s team has strong communication skills, which are very useful in this business consulting. Their professional and refined approach makes their work much more valuable to clients and they also have a great way of keeping everyone updated on any changes occurring along an assignment. CTER should be your next business consultant and I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

I have known the CTER team for over 20 years, completing international recruitment projects together. As the Polish partner of InterSearch Worldwide, the CTER team always delivered successfully, followed the agreed project plan, presented a shortlist of suitable candidates leading to appointment. I enjoy working with CTER on international recruitment assignments.
Micheal Coughlan
InterSearch Worldwide Board Director
We have been collaborating with CTER for more than 20 years for numerous clients and have successfully completed a large number of searches.

CTER put an extensive preparation into understanding of our clients’ businesses and the competitive landscape ensuring that they would be able to rapidly target potential candidates.

Throughout the various assignments we have been particularly satisfied with the qualitative shortlists of candidates we have received, and with their business partnering attitude. They are persistent in finding the right talent that matches the company DNA to maximize a cultural as well as a functional fit. They are thorough yet fast in delivery, assertive and honest in their communication.

CTER is aiming at a longterm placement.

I definitely recommend CTER for solving any complicated business task.
