Search & recruitment

Dahl & Kjærgaard profit from an elaborate network and an extensive career bank. Our retention rate is what sets us apart as one the industry’s elite firms.

The Dahl & Kjærgaard approach to recruitment sets itself apart in its point of departure: the motivation of individual candidates. While we tailor the recruitment process to the client and the complexity of the project at hand, our in-depth knowledge of our candidates is what has enabled us to not just recruit excellent people – but keep them happy in their new jobs.

Long-term relations
Since 1999, we recruited more than 1,000 new employees for both private and public sector clients. Despite this extensive track record, we maintain retention rate of 96 percent – that is, 96 percent of our candidates are still in the job after one year. Needless to say, several of Dahl & Kjærgaard’s clients have remained with us right from the very beginning. To see our references, go
