About Brobston Group

When assessing a candidate for a specific role we will evaluate their fit in the following areas:

  • Work experience – we look for recent experience in related roles, brands, and markets.
  • Hard skills – specific learned skills that are required for success in the role (e.g. technology skills, management skills, creative skills, analytical skills)
  • Soft skills – charisma, personal presentation, communication skills, inter-personal skills, work ethic, and a growth mindset. These tend to be best understood through general conversation with an emotionally intelligent recruiter rather than specific questions.
  • Career objectives – do the candidate’s personal objectives make sense for this role? Will the realities of the role bring fulfillment and longevity? We ask these questions directly instead of making assumptions.
  • Compensation – are expectations aligned with the budget for the role?
