“Schmieder stands out from the crowd with its excellent contacts”

Schmieder GmbH is deeply committed to its employees. The recruitment consultants are true experts and very approachable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Schmieder GmbH to anyone else who is looking for a job. Thanks to its excellent contacts, Schmieder is able to stand out from the crowd of recruitment agencies. Any concerns that employees have are addressed as quickly as possible and treated confidentially. I’m really happy to be working for Schmieder GmbH on a personnel leasing contract with ZF in Friedrichshafen.

“If you want to advance your career, look no further than Schmieder”

After applying for a job as a Materials Engineer, Schmieder GmbH offered me an interview for the position of Quality Engineer with a renowned company in Ravensburg. I received a fast response to my application and all further communication was incredibly friendly and easy-going. For 3 months now I’ve been employed by Schmieder on a personnel leasing contract and am very satisfied.

They also provided me with incredible support during the application process for my work visa (EU Blue Card). Compared to other recruitment agencies in particular, the staff at Schmieder were extremely personable and ensured that my transition into my new job went without a hitch. That’s why I would definitely recommend Schmieder GmbH to others who are looking to advance their career.

"From temporary employment to a permanent job"

When my previous employer carried out a reorganisation of the company, I placed my trust in Schmieder. In a face-to-face interview, they showed a genuine interest in my personality as well as my CV, and we discussed my options. In no time at all, I had a new job with Hymer in Bad Waldsee. Schmieder was also involved in organising my subsequent offer of permanent employment. The communication was always great, and the whole process completely transparent!

"They showed a genuine interest in my aspirations"

After submitting my application to Schmieder, they asked me about my aspirations and expectations for my next job in great detail. It wasn’t long before I was offered the perfect position. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Schmieder as a recruitment agency to others in the Ravensburg area, especially given how good and reliable the communication was throughout the process. I was also pleasantly surprised by the wide range of vacancies for technicians and engineers, since Schmieder is primarily known for its recruitment of commercial professionals.

We were impressed by Schmieder’s prompt response and their expertise

As an IT consultancy, we occasionally have to deal with filling vacancies that require a combination of commercial and technical expertise. Filling these sorts of vacancies is usually a lengthy and complicated process. That’s why we approached Schmieder. We were impressed by Schmieder’s prompt response to our enquiry and their clear expertise, particularly in terms of recruiting engineers, and managed to fill the vacancy within two months. We look forward to continuing our partnership in the future!

Got a question? We have the answer.

  • As an engineer, why should I choose Schmieder Recruitment?

    We have been working in recruitment for over three decades and have a wealth of experience as well as valuable contacts with over 300 renowned companies from the local area. Submit just one application to us and we’ll take care of everything else. All of our staff are professionals who specialise in the recruitment of engineers. As a result, we will provide you with individual support and advice with the aim of introducing you to the right company quickly and discreetly.

  • What sets a good engineer recruitment agency apart from others?

    One of our guiding principles is: “Good people in good companies”! This means that we leave nothing to chance and always do our utmost to find THE perfect company for our applicants. Our decades of experience, areas of specialisation – which includes engineers – as well as our extensive customer network help us to work towards achieving our aim.

  • How long does it take for vacancies to be filled using your engineer recruitment service?

    It is difficult to make a sweeping statement in this regard as it varies from person to person. Sometimes it takes just a few days to recruit engineers, while in other cases it can take several weeks. To be specific, the exact period of time will depend on the job profile, the role and the requirements of the companies with which we collaborate.

  • What exactly does a recruitment agency do for engineers?

    We are experts in engineer recruitment and will help you to find the perfect company for you. Our recruitment consultants will take the time to get to know you personally and to find the jobs that are not only the perfect match for your technical skills, but your personality too. We know just the right people and the tweaks that you need to make to get your career as an engineer up and running.

  • Does a recruitment agency for engineers and technicians also provide recruitment advice?

    We are significantly different to most other recruitment agencies, because you get everything from one single service provider with us. Your dedicated contact person will provide you with their advice right from the very beginning, all the way through to your successful placement. This enables us to operate in a much more precise and purposeful way to ensure that we find the best job for you as quickly as possible.

  • Can a recruitment agency for engineers also help people to find a new career?

    If you are longing for a new challenge in your career, you can count on us to provide you with the professional support you need to find the right challenge for you. As experienced professionals in engineer recruitment, we will provide you with our advice and open up new opportunities and career paths for you. As a result, there are no limits to your personal and professional growth.

  • I am not interested in doing temp work. Can I still apply?

    Absolutely! We help more than 80% of our applicants to find permanent employment with renowned companies from the local area. Being leased to a company even for a short period of time has its benefits, as this is usually treated as a probationary period. In the majority of cases, leased employees are offered a permanent position by the companies while they are still on lease to them, or soon afterwards.

  • Where do you recruit people?

    Schmieder GmbH is THE recruitment agency from the Lake Constance/Upper Swabia and Allgäu region. Our primary focus is on the recruitment of commercial and engineering professionals. From Ulm to Lake Constance and from Überlingen to Lindau, we find the right jobs for the right people.

  • Which companies do you collaborate with?

    Our motto is “From the region. For the region”, which is why we have been collaborating with companies from the Lake Constance/Upper Swabia and Allgäu region for over three decades. Our regular customers now include more than 300 leading companies from the local area.

  • Will you automatically consider my application for other vacancies?

    We will automatically compare your application with several vacancies to ensure we find the perfect placement for you. Thanks to our many years of experience, our trustworthy partnerships with our customers and our modern applicant management system, we are able to place you with companies that are the perfect match for you. Before submitting your documents to one of our partners, we will discuss this with you once more to come to an agreement on how to proceed.

  • How should my cover letter be structured?

    When it comes to the structure of your cover letter, you should bear in mind that our application managers deal with a large number of applications on a daily basis, so keep it short and to the point.
    Ideally, your cover letter should be structured in such a way that it provides us with a brief overview of your current situation. It should be no longer than one DIN A4 page and tell us what motivated you to look for another job or career, the area in which you would like to work, your earliest possible start date, etc. There is also no need for you to make reference to a specific job vacancy, as we may also use your application for other positions – after discussing this with you first of course.

  • What are the application documents that you need?

    Your application documents are the ticket to your dream job. For this reason, they need to be complete and free of any mistakes.
    In addition to your cover letter and CV, an application that will make the right impression should also include a cover page as well as any relevant references and certificates. Although a photo is not compulsory, it makes a nice finishing touch to your application.
