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.

What is the significance of a job specification?

A job specification is a statement of employee characteristics and qualifications required for satisfactory performance of defined duties and tasks comprising a specific job or function. The job specification is derived from a job analysis, which defines the tasks be performed by the respective employee and his responsibilities and how the job is embedded in the company's organization and processes. Additionally, the job specification defines the requirements, which qualification and experience the respective employee must possess, i.e. the candidate's profile.

What is Direct Search?

80% of candidates do not actively look for a job, but they would find an offered position interesting. Headhunters and Executive Search Consultancies choose “Direct Search” as the fastest and most efficient search method identifying suitable candidates who match the given job profile and make contact with them directly.

How does the ideal application look like?

The requirements for a complete application differ from country to country, even within German speaking countries and within Europe. Typically, the application contains a covering letter (motivation letter) and the CV (in American English "resume") with copies of references and educational certificates (graduation, exams, university degrees) and language skills. Ideally, the CV starts with a short summary of most characteristics, skills and personality profile (bullet points), followed by a detailed description of the employers in chronological order starting with the latest employer first.
