Focus on Core Competences 

Asking the right questions

A successful selection of highly-specialised technical personnel and management personalities requires profound knowledge of the industry and function. It is only by so doing that applicants can be professionally recruited and competently prepared for their new duties. Technical and industry-specific competence is valued by the prospective employer as well as the candidate and preferred in their own interests.

As function-oriented career consultants, we maintain intensive contacts to our experts and management personnel. We know the development and the requirements of the industries we serve very well and can thus successfully and sustainably staff vacant positions.
