  • The German recruitment/hiring processes and HR characteristics.

With us you gain competitive advantages and develop effective placement activities in one of the globally leading HR markets.


Why consultations WITH US before and not simply cooperate?

Many HR agencies "want & promise". only a few really "can & do". In the past we invested a LOT of time and money in new cooperation partners and gave valuable, decisive insider know-how for free to partners, who had no experience or contacts in Germany’s HR market. Until we realized: “Many want & promise". But only a few really "CAN & DO". Means: Most can't meet the requirements along a fast placement process in Germany's HR market. Therefore we decided:


Cooperation Only After Consultation/Training & Probation. 

No Exemptions.


So at the beginning we only work on hourly basis. Not on a split-fee basis on whatever percentage or other.


Our consultations & trainings lay THE foundations of any cooperation. by us 

  • You will receive the answers to all your questions.
  • You will be able, to enter successful cooperation with us or others.
  • You will also be able, to operate independently and profitably alone in Germany's HR market.

On request and after we prepared you, we initiate placement cooperation for your agency with partners all over Germany. Also on request we assess your agency's placement prospects and options for Germany. The same with your candidates. We assess for 800+ occupations. 


Our consulting fee (per hour) for sure iS affordable and amortizeS quickly

As you noticed, in 2019 the recruitment businesses in Germany received the highest fees from the German companies, who pay some of the highest salaries in the world. Therefore: Compared to the high fees you receive for your placements in Germany, our fees (190 € per hour) are always fine for successful HR agencies (single recruiters can get a discount after proving.)


Usually we have a longer waiting time. So as a recommendation: Go through our REPORTS before booking individual consultations with us. They demonstrate you the value & quality of our services. And they answer many of your important questions. That will save you time & money.
