Our Approach

Understand you
At Ampersand World, we have a fixed set of objectives for each mandate designed to help serve clients in an optimum manner. Specifically, we strive to have a good grasp of the specific challenges of the world of trading. We endeavour to have a comprehensive understanding of the full spectrum of trading jobs and we aim to anticipate and tackle challenges appropriately and skilfully.

In order to precisely meet the needs of our clients and successfully execute our research, we implement a number of logical, proven steps. We begin by considering all of a client’s practical needs before applying rigorous analysis on a case-by-case basis. We then leverage our deep expertise, add a dash of intuition and draw upon our powerful network.

Just as we value the enormous potential of a company’s human resources, we believe that certain qualities are critical to the success of our partnerships: expertise and skill, being able to listen and provide regular follow ups – these help to instil a client relationship that is as dynamic as it is long-lasting.
Support you
To best serve your ambitions and harmonise the management of your human capital, Ampersand World supports its clients on several different levels. We first identify the position(s) to fill before developing an appropriate and personalised recruitment programme. We then assign a dedicated Talent Manager to each project, propose a targeted selection of suitable candidates and provide support before, during and after the mandate.

Just as high-level athletes are expertly coached to reach their maximum potential, Ampersand World sets very ambitious objectives for our individual candidates. Once an individual has found their dream job - regardless of position or level - we never leave them to their own devices; on the contrary, we continue to support them with comprehensive, ongoing follow-ups
Satisfy you
The desire to satisfy our customers is what motivates us – this is the raw material with which we work; it gives us energy, it is our raison d’être. This is why we aim to adopt a different approach for each request, why we seek to develop innovative services that meet each HR problem, and why we continue to permanently adapt our offer to suit the needs of our clients.

At Ampersand World, creating a lasting client relationship requires commitment and trust. The success of Ampersand World owes as much to our ethics as to our expertise.
