We’re a company with over a decade of experience delivering executive search, temporary workforce, outsourcing and HR consulting services.

Our most important aspiration is to meet our partners’ needs with what is possibly the most significant resource one can have


We stand by our core concepts and make sure

to embed them in all of our processes and workflow




Executive search

Board and Senior Executive positions need a focused, proactive and targeted approach, especially if the role is global, time/business-critical or a technical position. Do you want to ensure growth and a long-term, competitive advantage? Our retained, Executive Search solutions will help you achieve your goal.

IT Specialists

Our focus is our partners’ growth, pure and simple. We all are successful when the face-to-face welcoming of new developers is properly performed. Our success is defined by the best opportunities that we create for their professional achievements.

In-close cooperation

Whether we’re talking about IT Teams extension, such as on-site specialists, or recruiters to augment your company’s potential and ensure the development and completion of an end-to-end project, we have a sustained strategy and processes to make sure we accelerate growth and increase the company valuation.

Paytable Salary Survey


For the presented positions, we propose using Database Search as a sourcing method, because our consultants have developed recruitment projects for similar positions and have set up a database of candidates which could provide a good starting point. Also, taking into account the level and specificity of these positions, we believe that Direct Search is also a very applicable sourcing method to be used.

Budgeting & Flexibility

Due to the very competitive recruitment market on the profiles you are looking for, we propose we assist you in validating the estimated budget for each of the positions you intend to hire.

Also, we strongly suggest you are as flexible as possible in terms of:

  • Location of candidates – as the recruitment market is very tight on the profiles you are looking for, we recommend we extend our search outside Bucharest and cover all Romania.
  • WFH - since the WFH is dictated by the pandemics, more and more IT specialists prefer to work from home 100%.
  • Form of employment – as more and more IT specialists are working as “freelancers” we suggest we keep open the possibility to hire based on PFA (Individual Authorized Person) or SRL (micro-enterprise)

Short list

  • Presentation of the eligible candidates' list, between three and five candidates/positions.
  • Your Cteq consultant will produce a ranking of the candidates for each position and will resume the selection process until the position has been filled. Cteq will also use its own database for this purpose.
  • Cteq will make available all the profiles of the interviewed candidates.
  • We will provide information regarding the current salary package of the candidates as well as their salary expectations.
  • Creating a list of candidates who have been selected for the second round of interviews.
  • Refining the standard profile
  • Continuing the recruitment for suitable candidates for the available position
