Direct search, valuing people, transparently and quickly

Yes – We at SAM International have more than 30 years of experience in demanding direct search, headhunting and recruitment.

But – Despite this experience, we have decided to challenge our industry, which is why we have renewed our way of working and our team as a whole from 2021. Now we have more than 20 professionals with management experience and motivation in many different industries to help you.

That’s why – As a client or candidate, we promise you a human-friendly, transparent and fast recruitment process where you know when and where to go.

So – Our experienced consultants invest in finding the best solutions for the future challenges of both your company and your industry. We are your partner in both expert, middle management and top management level searches. We can do the recruitment according to your wishes as a direct search, an open advertisement search, or a silent, confidential search.

A SAM consultant is a reliable partner for your company, who brings out the best in you as an applicant. Find out more about our services, submit a request for a quotation and/or upload your resume to our CV base.

We always go towards the person. Whether you are a candidate or a client, we always want to help you as a person, and we make this possible together. We operate openly and transparently, while maintaining confidentiality. We communicate regularly and personally in all stages of the application process and to all parties.

This is made possible by the fact that at least two SAM consultants always participate in each assignment.

We speak plain language, and not – gobbledygook.

You can also count on us to get back to you as agreed. And you can always contact us.

”Olemme tehneet nyt projekteja SAM:in kanssa ja haluamme jatkaa yhteistyötä ilman muuta. Projektit ovat olleet laadukkaita ja hyvin johdettuja, jonka seurauksena olemme saaneet hyvät rekrytoinnit aikaiseksi. Aikaisemmista toimeksiannoista SAM erosi nopeudellaan sekä hyvällä yhteydenpidolla. Olemme kokonaisuudessaan erittäin tyytyväisiä. SAM on tullut hienosti haastamaan headhunting-kenttää. Olen ollut erittäin positiivisesti yllättynyt, miten tiiviisti ja silti laadukkaasti headhunting- ja rekrytointiprosessia voi hoitaa – olemme saaneet erittäin sopivat kandit palkattua SAM:n tarjoaman 6 viikon prosessin jälkeen. En uskonut, että tämä on mahdollista, mutta kyllä se oli!”
