Universal Hires specializes in serving multinational and medium-sized organizations with their recruitment needs in Germany.
In addition, we focus on our clients’ values and corporate culture when looking for leadership positions.
When engaging with Universal Hires for a recruitment/executive search in Germany, our projects are structured in four steps:
We analyze the vacant position, the provided job description and the company’s environment. Upon confirmation, we draft a requirements profile and develop a suitable search strategy.
It is important to highlight that each search process is individual and requires a different approach. Our search process is usually based on a combination of direct contact, research on well-known social media platforms (active sourcing) and search within our own candidate database.
From experience, successful executives do not wait for a headhunter to reach out to them or for the matching job advertisement to appear in the newspaper. However, most candidates are open to new professional challenges when being presented with an interesting job opportunity by a credible headhunting firm.
Our search approach is highly targeted. Thanks to many years of experience, we have a high level of market expertise and therefore, we succeed in convincing candidates to enter the application process and providing them with new possibilities to develop their career.
In conclusion, the search process is coordinated smoothly by our experts in order to present the first candidates within three to four weeks (best case scenario).
Prior to starting the actual search, an intensive workshop with the client is scheduled to set up a detailed position and requirement profile. This is also the moment for our consultants to develop a clear understanding of company values, strategies and goals before the development of the range of tasks as well as the personal and professional success factors takes place.
We take our time for detailed and thorough interviews with the prospective candidates. For each position, we develop an individual questionnaire to ensure the highest possible accuracy in matching the candidate’s profile with your requirements. Candidates are faced with great attention and professionalism. Our ultimate goal is to present individuals that fit both from their specialist expertise as well personality.
Due to our detail-oriented selection process, we guarantee a tailor-made pre-selection. At the end of the day, we will present you with a handful of high-quality candidates that really fit into the required position and your company: We consider the human factor as well as the professional skillset for leaders and experts in their respective fields.
If you decide to interview one or more candidates in person, we will be happy to support you during the first interviews onsite. Hereinafter, both you and the candidate will receive neutral feedback.
In case you move forward with hiring one of our presented candidates, we assist in the onboarding procedure. We act as a neutral partner and ensure smooth onboarding.
Our core competence is confidential direct contact with prospective candidates. We source the market and the corporate landscape for suitable candidates while also having access to our own database.
In addition, each of our consultants has its own contact network that they have established throughout their recruitment career.
