Headhunting for Executives in Germany

People make companies successful. We provide our clients with comprehensive support in identifying and recruiting the right leaders for their key positions. In headhunting, personal contacts, seniority, experience, and overview all count similarily. We have a resilient international network and access to relevant decision-makers and excellent personalities. This is how we find people who develop companies, drive innovation and sustainably secure and expand our clients' success. 
In intensive discussions we analyse and question the basic requirements of our clients. We define detailed competence and requirement profiles with reference to reality and the framework conditions on the labour market.

First-Class Networking - Nationwide and Internationally

We look back on over 50 years of experience in headhunting - in Germany and internationally.  We recruit executives for clients throughout Germany and in an international context.

As headhunters, we focus on recruiting executives for German locations and business units for companies from abroad.

In addition to our expertise in headhunting and our knowledge of the industry, we can also draw on broad knowledge of intercultural communication in order to always be able to recruit outstanding executives and suitable personalities for our clients.

Attracting Leaders with Industry Expertise

We work with numerous small and medium-sized enterprises as well as family businesses. We also count companies with several thousand employees and international corporations among our clients. We speak the language of medium-sized businesses and understand how to fill management positions in a high-quality, suitable and sustainable manner.
 

Dr. Maier + Partner sees itself as a cross-sector generalist. We are very familiar with sectors such as the automotive industry or mechanical and plant engineering.  We recruit executives in every sector. We count technology companies as well as businesses from the retail, consumer goods, and medical technology sectors among our clients. We also find suitable executives for high-tech and start-up companies.

We Offer Efficient and Sustainable High-Quality Headhunting Processes

In addition to the professional and personal qualifications, in personal interviews we scrutinise the working methods and individual attitudes of the candidates and compare the results with your requirements and your company culture.

We check references very seriously and with the necessary experience. Furthermore, we use diagnostic procedures if requested by the client.

After our intensive selection process, the right decision for a successful cooperation can be made on the basis of joint discussions with you and the candidates.

Even after a vacancy has been successfully filled, our consulting work does not end. We accompany leaders during their integration into the new position (on-boarding) and regularly seek dialogue with the candidates as well as with our clients. This is how connections are formed that are characterised by trust and integrity.

Potential Analysis

Making even better use of employees' potential and developing it is a very important tool in a competitive labour market.
