JPC Selection is a separate operational area within JP Cornerstone, focusing on recruitment at middle management level.
JPC Selections high-quality recruitment process is extremely cost-effective. In the analysis of the profile and in assessing candidates, we make no compromises: we work to the same stringent standards we use in our Executive Search process.
There is, of course, a difference in the method of identifying qualified candidates. At middle management level, the number of possible candidates is often rather large (quite simply there are more middle managers than senior executives!), and the aim is to find a sufficiently wide selection of suitable candidates. This is where job advertising and database searches are frequently the most cost-effective approach to recruitment.
JPC Selection utilises advertising in both print and electronic media to reach and attract high-quality leaders or specialists at middle management level. JPC Selection works with the best employment sites on the web with the aim of achieving maximum exposure to the precise target group.
We supplement advertising with searches in our own national and international databases, and in social career networks on the Internet (such as LinkedIn).
