What to expect

  • Honesty

    The battle for strong talent is real and in some functions it is all out war. Transparency is the foundation of every dynamic and successful process.

  • Discretion

    Having respect from our network enables us to keep a tight lid on confidential assignments and experience has taught us how to be economic with data and sensitive information.

  • Quick Turnaround

    Target 3 to 8 working days for shortlist delivery, role dependent. We do not make time for tweeting to the masses or blogging our market intel. When you register a search with Extractive we give it our all until the job is done. Our niche network makes our role easier but referencing and fresh due diligence requires a commitment and work ethic that we always deliver.

  • Niche Understanding

    Taking the mine site as an example: the nuances of a specific brief, commodity, team, location, government, compliance quagmire, (and many more variables) then balance that matrix with the candidates' desires and personal circumstances; there is a lot to process. Fortunately we know our markets and network so well, we are able to make such matches very quickly and turn around shortlists in a matter of days.
