Executive Placement

You are used to taking charge of your business – now take charge of your own future. Make your career your business! If you are looking for an equal partner to help you, then we are here to create new opportunities, focus your resources, find new partnerships, and manage your risks. We have established a consultancy approach that consolidates Kienbaum’s competences to respond to all the challenges that traditional outplacement would not answer.

Unlike most of the HR companies who provide you with an analysis of your competences and professional achievements and coach on definition of the targets and interview passing techniques, Kienbaum provides not only these services but actually looks for a new job for you!

This is the same executive search approach but vice versa – our expert researchers

  • make a list of suitable companies all across Germany,
  • approach the prospects,
  • organize interviews for you.

As the market leader for executive search services we have an excellent contact network on the top level and know how HR works and which strategies get you noticed and talked about.

Come and speak to us – we are always here for you.
