Dear Senior Executive,

I created Exige with a simple desire; to provide a recruitment process that delivers excellence.

An excellent process that connects great companies and people together, through a highly quantifiable and ultimately explainable process.

The last 17 years has been a journey of refining, defining, testing, and perfecting our method. This has resulted in an exceptional process, that our clients love because it delivers excellent people on time and on budget.

To show you what we can deliver, I have collected the stats that highlight the work we commit to every search.

An average Exige Search over 4-8 weeks we…

  • Look through 14,532 profiles
  • Add 217 candidates to a long list
  • Conduct 35 hours of interviews
  • Spend 9.4 hours prepping documents
  • To produce an average of 3.6 candidates for a short list

Please see some of the very kind and positive references our clients and candidates have shared, they are further proof of commitment to recruitment excellence.

When you are ready to speak with me or my team, please follow one of the links found throughout the website, and we’ll look forward to finding you truly excellent people for your company.

Best regards,
William Laitinen


We only take on a limited number of vacancies at a time so we can dedicate ourselves to each search, ensuring we provide our clients and candidates with an extraordinary process. The Exige Way.



Our team will take the time to learn about your business, gaining a thorough understanding of your company culture and team dynamics.



We will find the best candidates for your vacancy by tapping into our extensive network, searching thousands of profiles and seeking out only the most exceptional individuals.



We will then assess each candidate through 2 hours of interviews. This ensures we only shortlist individuals who are a perfect fit.



After narrowing down a shortlist of highly qualified candidates, we will manage the logistics of the interview and offer stages.



Once a job offer has been made, we will continue to communicate with both client and candidate, ensuring a smooth transition, ROI and lasting satisfaction on both sides.

Why work with

Exige International

At Exige we understand that recruitment can pull your focus from more important things – like running your business. Let Exige take the burden from you. We will examine your business, your culture and your vacancy from every angle to understand exactly what you want. Then we will build our strategy.

Within 4-8 weeks, we find you a shortlist of 3-5 exceptional candidates, we know you will want to interview. But that’s not all. We will keep you up-to-date with weekly reports. Write individualised cover letters for each candidate, and help you organise world class interviews. When everything is ready, we’ll support the offer process. 

WE KNOW HOW TO tell your story

Once we identify a candidate for your vacancy, we effectively sell the opportunity through accurate and compelling story telling. So even before you interview our candidate, they are ready to join your team. This doesn’t happen by accident, we value stories and pay attention to yours. That way, when you make them an offer, they know what makes your company great and how they can be a success.
