DELTACON stands for industry know-how, reliability, highest quality and guarantee.
In 2019, Vienna was named the most livable city in the world for the tenth time in a row. The result shows that the “Vienna way” impresses internationally. The excellent location convinced DELTACON Executive Search to settle in Vienna. In 2019, Vienna was again rated by the international Executive Search Consulting agency Mercer as the city with the highest quality of life in the world. This means that Vienna has consistently been at the top of this ranking since 2009. Second place went to Zurich (Switzerland), followed by Vancouver (Canada) in third place. Vienna once again owes its top ranking to its excellent infrastructure with a well-developed and reliable public transport network, water and health care as well as a wide range of cultural and educational offers.
This is one of several reasons why DELTACON Executive Search founded a branch here in 2017. This location is managed by Managing Partner Marcus Christopher Schulz. From here, clients from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and the neighbouring eastern countries are supported in their search for executives and specialists. Other special features are the control of many entities in eastern neighbours from Vienna and the ideal spatial proximity. Especially the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary should be mentioned here. Vienna has always been a mediator between East and West - and not just from a political point of view. Vienna has grown through migration over the centuries - and not just in terms of the number of inhabitants.
And here we are about Executive Search for Austria and its neighbouring countries: Vienna is a central starting point for many local and international companies on the way to expansion and sustainable success. DELTACON Executive Search supports medium-sized clients as well as international corporations in their search for the "perfect match" with future executives and specialists. "The war for talents is over - the talents won!" As a result, employer branding and the advantages of a location are more than decisive for the candidates, according to the motto "be a good host!".

Why is DELTACON Vienna the ideal Executive Search Consultancy for recruiting in Eastern Europe?
According to the Austrian Business Agency (ABA), 426 international companies relocated to Vienna in 2019. This is an increase of 30 percent compared to the previous year, with 143 companies from Germany. The reasons for this are the central location in Europe and the good transport connections, especially to the east. Well-trained staff and the high level of social partnership round off this first-class picture.
Another special feature is the control of many entities in eastern neighbours from Vienna and the ideal spatial proximity. Vienna has always been a mediator between East and West, and not just from a political point of view. Vienna has grown through migration over the centuries - and not just in terms of population. The access of other cultures has also had a strong and incredibly positive effect on the economy.
And here we are about Executive Search for Austria and its neighbour-countries: Vienna is a central starting point for many local and international companies on the way to expansion and sustainable success. DELTACON supports medium-sized clients as well as international corporations in their search for the "perfect match" with future Executives and Specialists. "The war for talents is over - the talents won!" As a result, employer branding and the advantages of a location are more than decisive for the candidates, according to the motto "be a good host!".
A special focus is the search for Specialists and Executives as EXPATS of German-speaking companies. Vienna is ideally suited for this due to its location in the center of Europe. This is where DELTACON Executive Search puts another focus of its activities.
What does the abbreviation EXPAT mean?
A classic definition of EXPAT refers to - mostly highly qualified - skilled workers who are sent abroad by their employer for a limited time to work in branches or outsourced projects. Essential features are the time limit (usually one to five years) of the posting by an organization and the maintenance of ties to the home country or to the posting company. The goal of the sending organization is often the transfer of know-how, improvement of communication and the desire for control. From the expatriate's point of view, the focus is often on professional or personal development.
DELTACON Executive Search supports clients in the entire German-speaking area to fill vacant EXPAT positions promptly and appropriately.
