We are free of any charge for candidates. Most of the recruitment agencies are working on requests and are paid by the companies they are cooperating with. Thus, there are no regular costs, but only when the position is filled. You get a free coach accompanying you from the beginning. As a candidate, you always have a contact person at your side and do not have to pay any costs.
This coaching function can remain even if the candidate, unfortunately, does not receive a job offer. We keep our candidates in the databases. Thus, we can get in touch again when a new opportunity arises. This can lead to longer-term cooperation and trust relationship between candidate and agency, too. We do not give up on candidates directly just because there is currently no suitable position for the profile. By regularly receiving new job offers from clients, a new opportunity may arise in the future. The next process can start quickly, since the CV is then already available and a first interview has taken place.
