Recruiting Agencies

Founded in 1988 by Gerhard Benneck Contacts & Management is recruiting agency inDüsseldorfGermany, which handles national and international manpower. It initially focused on advertising based searches and gradually moved onto direct executive search popularly termed as ‘headhunting’ by using unique recruitment strategies and techniques.

Recruiting firms may contact applicants during work hours. This is often only a short phone call in which the searcher gives a brief description of the position to be filled. If the candidate seems interested then the consultant will now contact you in the evening. He will tell you a bit more about the position and will expect you to describe your experience to date.

Recruitment agencies are free of charge for candidates. Recruitment Agencies are working on request and are paid for by their clients. Therefore, there are no costs for you as a candidate. You are getting help at no cost!

Recruitment agencies have up to date knowledge about the labor market. They know which sectors and companies are offering exciting opportunities for people with your knowledge and expertise, and which expectations are realistic.

They have a great network. They can often quickly get you in contact with interesting clients and projects.They save your valuable time and effort, they get things done really fast because of their market reach and existing connections.

Good recruitment agencies will work with both the client and the candidate and will try to help the candidate to make a good impression on the potential employers. They help to bring out the positives of the candidate and project why he would be a perfect fit to the client. They are also aware of the style and format of the interview and prepare you well.

The agency will know what the company can and cannot afford, they also know what other applicants with similar experience and skill sets are looking for and they will know what workers in other companies are getting paid to do the exact same job. They have information about current recruiting trends and inside company knowledge.

Recruitment agencies have access to jobs that you as a job seeker often cannot reach. Through many years of partnership with clients, agencies are often the first to hear about profiles that are needed. They also keep you updated on the process, while it may take ages to get the human resource department to respond when applying directly.

Having said this, the clients of recruiting companies are the companies themselves. Recruiting companies will usually not start looking for a job for an individual candidate. Therefore it is a good idea to register with the recruitment company and get your CV into their database but don’t expect them to do your job search for you!

Contacts & Management is a leading recruitment agency founded in 1988 by Gerhard Benneck. It covers various industries such as IT, Chemical, Construction, Machine Building and many more. It initially focused on advertising based searches. It gradually moved into direct executive search popularly termed as ‘headhunting’ by using unique recruitment strategies and techniques. Contacts & Management is located in Düsseldorf Germany; its services are available all over the country along with adjacent nations.

Recruiting is never an easy task; it takes a lot more than typing up a job description and screening of resumes to find that perfect candidate. High-quality candidates get hired instantly, and it can be difficult to attract them to a new job. Candidate quality is almost always an issue, particularly in a dynamic economy where new technologies, global economic awareness and high educational requirements are in huge demand. Sometimes the hiring process itself takes a long time and the best candidates might opt to take a job from another firm.  Many firms do not have a human resource strategy and instead simply seek a new employee when there’s a vacancy. This can decrease their access in the recruitment pool and make it even more difficult to recruit a good employee when there’s a vacancy.

Contacts & Management provides simple yet effective hiring solutions, which are guaranteed to suit the needs of your organization- still don’t believe us, we will show you how.

Our Recruiting Techniques

Advertising Based Recruitment

It starts with placing an advertisement in the appropriate newspapers, columns or online media in order to attract those candidates that are currently actively looking for jobs. The recruitment consultant will usually make a pre-selection of candidates by conducting preliminary interviews which will help with the final selection of candidates.

Recruitment or Headhunting

In this technique the headhunter or agency will pass CV’s on to the clients, leaving it up to them to conduct the first round of interviews, establish a shortlist, get references, make a final selection of candidates, negotiate upon compensation packages and finalize the employment contract. This is often used for lower level positions.

Executive Recruitment

Executive Search is performed on a retained fee basis. The recruiting firm not only sources candidates but conducts the interviews, gets references (if desired) and helps the client throughout the entire hiring process. It is important to note that in a retained search you are paying for the time and expertise of the search firm.

Contacts & Management follows certain professional ethics such as the no touch agreement. We will not contact any employee from our client´s database for a position with someone else, neither will we approach the person we placed for another position. If desired, this can be incorporated into a search agreement. We consider our clients to still be in touch with us for a period of 2 years after the last project we have undertaken for the client. Candidates placed will never be approached by us.
