Client need

Recruiting through SERVICE A LA FRANCAISE begins with an interview with one of our recruitment consultants. This first contact allows us to identify your requirements and priorities when looking for a new employee, including the skills you are looking for, the salary package, your corporate culture and the type of contract you want to do.

The search and selection of talents

SERVICE A LA FRANCAISE offers three recruitment options. For the first formula, the assessment of the technical skills of candidates is done by one of our Recruitment Consultants (Meilleur Ouvrier de France). The other two formulas present candidates who have already been assessed either by being a finalist in business competitions or by holding a title of excellence such as the title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France.

Selection of candidates

After our initial selection process, we will present three candidates for formula 1 and one candidate for formulas 2 and 3 due to the scarcity of profiles. If you reject the candidate proposed for formulas 2 and 3, we will have to restart the full search and review together the salary and other conditions proposed.

Interview with the client

During this stage, you have the opportunity to remotely interview the candidates in order to assess if they match your company culture and the profile you are looking for. In this case, we will both conduct the interview so as to ensure that we understand the issues, particularly in non-French-speaking countries.


Following the successful interview, the client will lead the negotiations with the successful candidate. But we will have previously reflected together on the most suitable salary package and plan a perfect integration into your organization.
