Rapid career growth requires trade-offs. Only by coming out of one’s zone of comfort can one access new possibilities that are more challenging and rewarding. Executives who move companies when changing jobs on average get a 10% jump in compensation- the equivalent of staying on in the same job for three years at an average annual increment of 3% (assuming there’s no promotion).

We will contact you with a couple of alternative date/time slots to schedule a call. You may pick a reasonable time slot that works best for you.
A member of the LS International team will contact you at the agreed time to go over your experience and career aspirations and explain the way forward.
In the following weeks, we will schedule more detailed discussions and assessments (including a face-to-face interview). Based on the outcomes, we will seek your willingness to be put on a client longlist for a specific role. If you are not willing or there is no immediate match, we will keep your profile active, and bring you other suitable opportunities that arise. We suggest reconnecting via phone or personal meeting every 6 months.
Wanting to change jobs is just one side of the equation. You need to know what opportunities exist and whether you are likely to be seen as a good fit by the hiring manager and HR.
This means being aware of the valuable building blocks you possess- experience, market knowledge, behavioural competencies, functional expertise etc. It also needs you to be aware of possible gaps and how best you can fill them. This is what LS International’s Career Consulting service provides. We work closely with many organizations and hiring managers, and are thus well-informed of what kind of candidates they look for. We use these insights to guide individual executives so they become more attractive candidates for companies. And best of all, it’s free!
You fancy a change because your skills and experiences are in demand outside the industry you have worked in for years. Or you want to change career track for faster growth or because a role looks more challenging.
Both scenarios can potentially deliver high returns, but come with high risk as well because what got you to where you are is hardly ever enough to take you to where you want to go.
Personal styles determine behavioural responses, and success in roles requires individuals to be able to consistently exhibit behaviours that are critical to those roles. But do you know what behavioural traits you need to succeed in your next role and whether you possess them in adequate measure? Wouldn’t it be reassuring if your likelihood of success in roles you are considering could be accurately predicted even before you make the change?
We can help. To minimize your risk of making career choices that are not aligned with your innate personality, we help you analyse and understand your behavioural strengths and gaps. We do so using SuccessFinder, a scientifically-proven behavioural assessment tool with 85% predictive accuracy. After you take the online assessment, Bruno Lubeigt, a seasoned corporate leader, leadership coach and certified expert in SuccessFinder will confidentially debrief you on the results and advice you on how best you should approach your career moves, thus maximizing your chances of success in a new role or industry.
“I would strongly recommend LS international as a head hunter. Lauren was extremely supportive all the way through the process and very professional at all times. She secured that the expectations that both the company recruiting and I had were met keeping everyone aligned at all times.”
“Lauren sets the bar very high on how consultative Headhunting should be done. Professional, honest and transparent on the process. Taking time zones and time pressures into account I was impressed with the use of technology as part of the process where required. Lauren – You have a great relevant business. I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.”
"Daniel headhunted me for a role that I felt was written for the experience I have built up and what I thought more impressive was the fact that it wasn't the first role he brought to me. I always felt Daniel was working on behalf of my best interests. I am more than happy to recommend Daniel and hope that he is able to serve others a well as he has me."
