We couldn't think of a better name for a recruiting firm.

By definition "shortlist" is a list of those candidates for a position or an award, not eliminated in the preliminary selection process, from which the final choice will be made. For us it means hard work to find exceptional people.

Established in 2003 by senior professional Recruiters, Shortlist is an upmarket quality player recruitment boutique and one of Portugal’s leading Executive Search firms, with pan-European and pan-African reach, serving the strategic recruitment needs of Boards and CEOs, enabling their companies to build a true talent advantage.

Our vision is to spread the power of exceptional people, and our mission is to help companies make distinctive and lasting improvements in their performance through high-impact recruitments. 

In an effort to better serve our Clients, Shortlist was established as an independent boutique firm, with experienced, well seasoned and knowledgeable recruiting capacity, and with a focus on the quality of delivery and on building long term and in-depth relationships with clients. We're small enough to care and big enough to make an impact.

When critical leadership and recruitment decisions need to be made, we are the adviser of choice among large and medium-sized organisations across a range of sectors - Banking, Insurance and Financial Services, Industrial and Automotive, Life Sciences and Healthcare, Business and Professional Services, Consumer and Retail, Tourism and Hospitality, Energy and Natural Resources, or Supply Chain, Logistics and Transportation.

We handle our relationships with clients and candidates with great care. We treat sensitive information with the utmost discretion. We always honour our commitment to deliver; with quality.
