We position ourselves as a partner to all organisations aiming to develop their talent pool. We work in a consultative way to maintain an optimal relationship with our clients because we believe that, there resides the Key Success Factor.

Our Approach

We can source the best talent from Junior to Executive level for your organisation anywhere in the world. Our network and innovative talent search embrace technological solutions. The sourcing approach is faster and more efficient than a traditional approach.


Board Consulting

Our experience in board consulting and executive search enables us to conduct a well-ordered SWOT analysis of non-executive boards. In close collaboration with you we will first determine the desired board composition, based on personalities, soft skills, competencies and cultural fit. We will then on-board in a exhaustive search.

Retained search

Retained search goes with commitment, complexity, leadership and confidentiality. It is particularly appropriate when the need is urgent and critical, when the hire will have a significant impact on company performance or where leadership competencies outweigh other requirements. It is also appropriate if there is a scarcity among the talent pool and only few profiles fits the technical necessities of the search.

Contingency search

Also called “success fee” methodology, contingency search is the “classical” recruitment model. UR Capital can help you drive your business success on a contingency basis, because sometimes it makes sense to only pay when the process is complete and your new hire is on board. Contingency recruiting is particularly appropriate for companies looking to fill mid-level to upper management positions on a non-confidential basis.

RPO: Recruitment Process Outsourcing

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is a form of business process outsourcing (BPO) where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment processes to an external service provider. Our RPO solutions are implemented to specifically address your talent and business requirements across borders, based on our technical capability, global reach and rapid action.

I approached UR Capital because they were referred to us from a third party. Anicet Tanghe helped me by working closely with me to identify the future needs we had for our newly created family office. Their approach is extremely professional and efficient. UR Capital found us several key persons for our organisation. The added value brought by UR Capital is tangible thanks to their technical knowledge and experience to manage the most sophisticated needs. I would recommend Anicet Tanghe of UR Capital to people who need help with staffing and structuring their family office.

- Head of Family Office

London UK

I was head-hunted by UR Capital for a Chief Operating Officer role for a start-up company in London, and have been more than satisfied with the quality of service they deliver. I was generally impressed by the promptness of the recruitment process. The firm did a good job of guiding me through it and I have been pleasantly surprised with their follow-through.

COO and Marketing Officer, Minilab Studios, London

Nous sommes très heureux d’accueillir notre nouveau directeur administratif et financier dans notre groupe familial et de pouvoir bénéficier de sa riche expérience Franco-Suisse, notamment en tant que Directeur Financier d’une Entreprise à taille humaine. Nous avons été aidé dans notre choix et sélection par le cabinet UR Capital basé à Genève. Au-delà de l’aspect technique du cahier des charges ils ont très vite appréhendé les enjeux stratégiques et spécifiques d’un recrutement pour une société familiale, étant notamment spécialisé dans le recrutement pour les « family offices » et les entreprises familiales Européennes de renom.
