As a cross-sectional technology, it touches not only the classic areas of application but also a large number of topics that are crucial for our future: from e-mobility and renewable energies to digital security. With our industry expertise, we find the right candidates who not only have the necessary technical know-how, but also the foresight to proactively address the issues of the future.

Frequently asked questions to Olaf Kammerer

What role does a supervisory or advisory board play in filling management positions?

This question can be answered very easily: a very important role. Often, one of the main tasks of the supervisory board or advisory board is to appoint the management board of a stock corporation or the management of a limited liability company. The positions on the 2nd and 3rd management level are only filled with the involvement of the supervisory board or advisory board in rarer cases. Often, the members of the supervisory or advisory board do not have the professional background or the capacities to conduct the usually very time-consuming search for board members or managing directors themselves and then resort to Executive Search Consultancies such as DELTACON Executive Search in order to ensure a transparent, fast and objective appointment process.

Why do recruitment agencies often not name the company they are looking for?

Candidates are often surprised that an Executive Search Consultancy does not directly mention the name of its client in the first approach or in the first telephone call, although this has a very relevant, sometimes even decisive meaning for the candidates. One of the main reasons is that this is a covert search, i.e. neither the current job holder, nor competitors, nor clients should be made aware that the vacancy - and often these are C-level management positions - is being filled. However, the executive search firm will outline the area of responsibility in sufficient detail so that candidates can get an idea of whether they want to continue the application process. This includes, in addition to the industry, the essential tasks, of course, the approximate region of the duty station. In a serious staffing process, the name of the company is mentioned at the latest before or during the second interview; in the case of very confidential positions, the signing of a non-disclosure agreement still precedes this.
