Finding Heads sector focus

For more than 20 years, Direct Search and actual headhunting – successful direct approach in many different sectors

Finding Heads headhunters are former and/or active top-managers with leadership experience in international organisations and groups.

Experience, along with the corresponding networks, enables the agency to find the right candidate speedily and efficiently for companies (e.g. department heads, managers, top-managers, board of directors) at the management levels. Herein we mainly focus on the following sectors:


e.g. automotive development, car manufacturers, suppliers of automotive parts, tier 1, plastic- and metal-industry

The way the headhunter works

Active direct search for qualification & personality

Genuine headhunters, together with the customer, develop a target qualification and personality profile of the optimum candidate whom the customer wants to win for himself. Then the headhunter draws up a profile of the potential candidate with the background of qualification, his emotions and ratio. We identify candidates who are professionally integrated in companies or groups.

Discreet, systematic approach has top priority for the headhunter. If a potential candidate indicates that he is interested in changing the job within the industry, at first the professional and then the personal qualities are tested in a personal meeting.

The approach in HR consultation

Advisory search by means of ads

HR service providers and personnel consultants, together with the customer, often draw up an advertisement for the vacancy the customer wants to fill. In agreement with the client, the ads are then placed in different online platforms, print media, dailies, etc. The HR service provider often hopes and waits in vain for a candidate with roughly the same profile answers the ad. Then the next ad is placed ... at the client’s expense.

We believe this is an uncertain and time consuming approach for which the client pays and which in the end fails to produce the expected top candidate from the respective industry.

Fee for headhunters

Active direct search requires expenditure

A headhunter on direct search does not wait until a suitable applicant drops in but finds candidates actively in the market. The fee for the headhunter depends on the position to be filled and the difficulty of the search.

Our fees are always calculated on the basis of the actual costs incurred for the vacancy that is to be filled. We invoice you for a third of the total sum upon acceptance of your order with the second payment being due after presentation of the candidates, the third then being due upon conclusion of the project concerned.

We guarantee that every vacancy we accept will be filled. With a large number of projects we present the fist candidate after a few weeks.

Finding Heads guarantee

Headhunters find your candidate – invariably.

Commitment, identification and appreciation of the problem by the Finding Heads headhunter guarantee sustaining solutions for our customers. Personal maturity, motivation and in-depth, up-to-date knowledge at any time make the headhunting consultant the competent partner for your company.

Our claim of providing optimum staff research instead of doing bulk business is the advantage for you as our client. To ensure a traceable quality standard, Finding Heads International bases the selection of applicants on DIN 33430.

By the way: Without express consent, we will not within a period of two years contact any employee of any of our customers in the interest of another company.
