This role will be an integral part of the DACH practice, working with a remarkable variety of market-leading candidates and clients on a range of critical mandates, developing relationships and managing the end-to-end process.

    Your role:

    • Proactively identify and engage with best-in-class senior candidates and prospective clients, cultivating your own network of trusted relationships.
    • Utilise exceptional communication, on the phone and in person, to understand candidates’ backgrounds and motivations, client mandates and efficiently match the two.
    • Be the pivotal first point of contact for candidates and clients and act as an ambassador for our brand.
    • Be a key player in the deal process from end to end, directly influencing the careers of industry leaders and the successes of Private Equity businesses.
    • Harness market knowledge, deep diving into your own research and take advantage of our training and expertise to become an industry expert in your own right.
    • Excel in a fast-paced & high-performance environment, surrounded by driven & successful colleagues.

    We offer:

    • Rapid progression: Our model has always been to build internally and help our people climb the ranks. We have multiple success stories of consultants rapidly progressing to senior levels.
    • Entrepreneurial spirit: We pride ourselves on our high-performance culture and support entrepreneurial people who want to develop in their own space. Many of our practice areas were conceived and created by ambitious, entrepreneurial team members who wanted to carve out their own path.
    • Tailored Training: inductions include in-depth group-based learning and on-the-job training from our industry experts. We know that learning with your peers provides the best route to success – as well as creating a fun, collaborative, supportive work environment.
    • Constant development: Our focus on your development doesn’t stop there, we give tailored 1-2-1 training from both internal and external providers, high-performance and management training pathways and more, providing the perfect platform for your continued progression.
    • Benefits and beyond: Unlimited earning potential and an unrivalled commission scheme of up to 50%, along with other incentives, regular socials and an extensive benefits package.

    The ideal candidate:

    While we provide the tools for success, it is up to you to make it happen. Some attributes we look for in our consultants include:

    • Previous recruitment experience in a similar market.
    • Fluent in German and English.
