Management Approach

EDGE has a holistic approach to Career Management. This approach requires us to have a thorough and composite understanding of the career objectives and expectations of our candidates, in order to successfully and sustainably match these to the most appropriate career opportunity. We invest time with our clients to ensure that we not only understand the skills and experience required for a position, but also the corporate culture of the client, its growth and strategic objectives, and potential-talent mapping for the role and position in question.

Our dedicated, transparent and professional approach to delivering the right results and service, have led to long-term relationships with both clients and candidates. Our clients benefit from an unrivaled level of service. We do not necessarily find a candidate for every opportunity or requirement, or a role or fit for every candidate, but we are proud of our insignificant candidate ‘fall-off rate’.
