Our website provides you with four sections that you can use in order to send us your CV, to inform us on your professional background, and through which we can inform you on the type of positions that might be of interest to you. Our contact page provides you with our email address, as well as with the addresses of our company offices, which you may also use for this purpose.
Under the sections “apply now” and “open positions” you shall find a number of available positions within our clients’ companies, having the opportunity to choose a particular position you may wish to apply for and to send us your CV, alongside your expectations.
Under the section “send CV” you will be able to send us your CV, in order to keep it in our database, should any position come up that might suit your profile.

Once your CV gets into our database, it shall duly follow our natural recruitment process.
If you applied for a certain position within the section “apply now”, the recruitment process is to be run exclusively from the perspective of that particular position, following that you shall only be contacted for other positions which you may be interested in, should you express your wish for us to do so, by checking the option „ I consent to be included in Signium – Stein & Partner’s active database until I withdraw my consent, and to be contacted by Signium – Stein & Partner for future positions that could be of interest to me” In such cases, we will be able to contact you any time, as long as you are in our database, if a position that you may still be interested in, becomes available.
If you applied by using the section “send CV” or if you sent us your CV by using our email or p physical address, then your CV will be uploaded in our database by default. Subsequently, your profile will be considered upon the opening of any position that might be of interest to you.
In any and all events, the recruitment process starts by a review of the professional information you have supplied, which shall be conducted by our specialists, so as to see to what extent your professional profile matches our client’s requirements and expectations for any given position available in the latter’s organizational structures.
If, following the review, we will identify enough compatibility elements between your professional profile and the respective position’s related expectations, we shall contact you to have a meeting, in order to get to know you and find out more about your expertise and expectations.
In the event that you get to the final stage of the recruitment process, we shall provide our client with a full report on your professional profile, in which we shall include the information you have supplied to us, regarding your personal and professional background.
