Direct Search

Passive candidate search through ads has been increasingly unsuccessful for years. The interesting candidates must be actively identified, and purposefully approached to inspire them to change. Therefore, every recruitment effort is newly set up as direct search project: Target company list, identification, first contact, interviews - that's how we find the best candidates.



We use our “PURE” diagnostic concept for the perfect profile job match. The result is the degree of correspondence between the candidate profile of our clients and the profiles of the candidates. We intensively examine the candidates' documents and use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools: Psychometric Profiling and cultural due diligence, complemented by personally collected references using a professional questionnaire. The focus of the candidate evaluation is on leadership and management skills, value systems, and operational as well as strategic excellence.

bits & bytes


All accepted contracts are fulfilled: Over 90 % within the agreed time of 6-8 weeks - for the remaining almost 10 % applies: we are looking for until the position is filled! Active departures of our recruited candidates within the probationary period are infrequent. It is then quite clear that we repeat the search once without requesting another fee. Of course, the employees of our clients are protected with our don't-touch guarantee!



Our fee is two-thirds success-based! When commissioned by our clients, we charge a deposit, which initiates the search. A second installment is only due when we present the audited and most suitable candidates in the shortlist. The last installment is due after an employment contract is signed.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT PERSONNEL CONSULTING FOR construction, building material, building research and real estate

Why is DELTACON Frankfurt Ltd. The ideal partner for the industries construction, real estate, building materials and construction research?

High-quality and sustainable consulting for our clients always requires comprehensive industry experience of the respective consultant. As a matter of principle, DELTACON only works with consultants who can fall back on corresponding expertise in the respective industry. Each DELTACON Human Resources Consultant is therefore responsible for his or her own industry-specific Competence Center and specializes in the requirements of the respective markets and products. Sven Halbe is responsible for the Competence Center Construction, Construction Materials, Construction Research and Real Estate. With over 20 years of experience in the industry, he understands the needs of his clients, as well as the requirements for their specialists and managers, and also knows the market competitors and their products. The construction industry is characterized by the independence and individuality of each project. Since the possibilities of automation are significantly lower compared to the industry, the human being as an acting person is one of the decisive success factors. Starting with the planning up to the final execution. In addition, the constantly increasing demands on technology, building materials, safety, as well as sustainability, efficiency and harmony with nature create a great need for well-trained professionals and specialists. They form the basis of entrepreneurial success. We help our clients to find the best ones and therefore to be future-proof.

How does the process of employment work in a professional consultation?

The staffing process can be divided into several phases. At the beginning there is a detailed analysis of the customer's wishes, requirements and the company. We invest a great deal of time in this initial phase, because only when all the key data and information has been collected and defined into a clear goal can the staffing process be carried out successfully. In this initial phase, we work together with the client to develop a detailed position description including job description, candidate profile and general conditions. In addition, a joint target company list is also agreed upon, which also forms an important basis for the subsequent candidate search.

In the second step, the candidates are identified with the aim of generating a "longlist" of up to 100 candidates. Various instruments are used in the identification process. In addition to the classic search in various career portals, the consultant's industry network plays a very decisive role. The "direct search approach" is also very important, as experience shows that more than 80% of suitable candidates are not actively looking for a new challenge. In phase three the candidates are screened. Here DELTACON goes far beyond the classic checks of CV's and certificates. Through multi-level interviews and various instruments of psychometric profiling, we achieve an objective assessment of the candidates in relation to the requirements set. The result of the extensive tests then forms the "shortlist", on which the 3-6 most suitable candidates are then found. These are presented to the client with corresponding evaluations and recommendations. The key points of the fourth and last phase are the candidate interviews at the client's premises, which can be accompanied and supported by DELTACON. At the end of this review by the client, the final contract is signed with one of the candidates.

How do I know the quality of a good Consultation?

The DELTACON Group stands for a particularly high standard of quality.

We place a very strong focus on seriousness in our relations with customers and candidates. Both sides deserve the utmost respect and care in handling personal data and company information. We see ourselves as partners of the companies and live this understanding also beyond the mandate. Reliability and adherence to deadlines are just as much a hallmark of our consulting as transparency in processes and communication. DELTACON also stands for consistent industry specialization and the personal commitment of the respective consultant. The assigned consultant personally accompanies the entire recruitment process. Tasks are not delegated to other agencies. The DELTACON guarantees round off our own quality thinking. In summary, we can say: What we promise, we will keep!

Which significance does the industry experience of a consultant have?

The most important success factors for the best possible filling of vacancies are the careful definition of job and candidate profiles, the targeted candidate search and direct approach, as well as an appropriate industry network. In order to master these challenges in a professional and success-oriented manner, it is essential to have a comprehensive industry expertise. Due to the many years of industry and management experience of DELTACON consultants, we understand the wishes and concerns of our customers in the respective markets, know their products and market competitors, and can only guarantee profound consulting in this way. Our claim is to talk to candidates and clients at eye level. This approach is fundamental to our consulting and therefore we pursue it consistently.
