Why consultations before and not simply cooperate?

We already invested a LOT of time and money in building every our cooperation-partners and gave valuable and decisive insider know-how for free to partners, who had no experience or contacts in Germany’s HR market. Till we realized: “Many are willing, but not able”, to meet the requirements along the process for fast placements in the German HR market. Therefore we decided: 


No exemptions: No consultation. No cooperation.


By our consultations and trainings, which lay the foundations of any possible cooperation, you

  • will receive the answers to all your questions.
  • will be able, to enter in successful cooperations with us or others.
  • will be even able, to operate profitably alone in the German HR market.

Our consulting fees for sure are affordable and amortize quickly. As you surely read, in 2019 the recruitment businesses in Germany received the highest fees since 18 years from the German companies, who pay some of the highest salaries in the world. Therefore: Compared to the high fees for your placements in the German HR market, our fees are low and should be quite fine for successful HR agencies. Single recruiters can get a discount after proving.


As an idea: Go through our reports, surveys and guides before an individual consultation as they

  • demonstrate the value & quality of our services
  • and answer many of your important question. That will save you time & money.
