The World YWCA is grateful to the team at Mission Talent led by Katja, for their invaluable assistance and support in our search for a new General Secretary in 2016. We had a short time frame to find the right person for the job, some very tight timelines and huge shoes to fill. With the professionalism, confidentiality, reliability and insights of Katja and her team, we were able to reach around the world to identify a pool of worthy candidates and ultimately, to select the most suitable candidate to meet our needs. We were impressed with Mission Talent’s commitment to understanding our present and future needs, their responsiveness to necessary changes, their guidance to navigate the search and selection processes and ensure respect for our specific circumstances. They provided regular feedback but remained detached from the outcome and allowed our team to fully explore options until we were satisfied with our selection.
