“Since discovering Schmieder, I’ve been recommending the company to others about once a month”

When I was looking for a new challenge as an executive, Schmieder was the best choice I made. We had open and constructive talks about my aspirations and some suitable proposals were put forward in no time at all. Thanks to its long-standing customer relationships, Schmieder knows exactly what its customers need and referred me to my current employer Tegos in Ostrach within a very short period of time.

“I would recommend Schmieder to others without reservation!”

Schmieder exceeded the expectations I had of a commercial recruitment agency. I was impressed by their quick response and the huge number of vacancies they had. As an executive, I had certain expectations for my new position, which Schmieder did a great job of taking into account. The reliable communication between everyone involved also played a significant part in the prompt conclusion of an employment contract. For these reasons and also because of the extensive network in the Ravensburg area, I would recommend Schmieder to all other executives without reservation!

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!

The aim of a recruitment agency isn’t the signing of each individual contract, but investing in the long term

We’re impressed by the combination of outstanding value for money, superior quality, high reliability and excellent service that is offered by Schmieder. Thanks to their solution-oriented approach and our personal relationship, Schmieder understands exactly what our needs are and provides us with perfectly suitable executives and commercial staff that have been rigorously vetted beforehand. No issues whatsoever and always professional, we will definitely use them again!

Got a question? We have the answer.

  • What are the most sought-after executive positions through a recruitment agency?

    From up-and-coming executives and department heads to managing director positions, the list is endless. We have various senior positions on our books and coordinate closely with you and the companies to ensure that no limits are set to your personal development as an executive.

  • Does it make a good impression on a company if an executive submits their application through a recruitment agency?

    Yes, because many companies themselves rely on professional recruitment agencies, including for executive roles. The companies hold our personal recommendations in high regard and even entrust us with exciting key positions instead of advertising them publicly. As a result, you benefit hugely from exclusive job vacancies at leading companies from the local area, with nothing standing in the way of your career as an executive.
