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.

  • What exactly does a recruitment agency for engineers do?

    As experts in the recruitment of engineers, we are focused on finding the candidates that are perfect for you – not just personally, but professionally too. Our customer advisers are honest and discreet and will fill any vacancies you have in line with your needs and wishes. They are also extremely proactive and will narrow down the choice of suitable engineering professionals for you.

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

    Unfortunately, it is impossible to make a sweeping statement in this regard as it depends on various factors. Sometimes it takes just a few days, while in other cases it can take several weeks. To be specific, the period of time will depend on the job profile, the role and your requirements as a company. The current number of applicants will also play a major role, of course.

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

    We specialise in the recruitment of engineers, and the focus of our work is on you as a company, as well as the applicants. We have a good nose for finding the candidates that will be the perfect match for you both professionally and personally, and this is what sets us apart from the competition. You will benefit from our specialist and expert knowledge, as well as our intuition, which we have demonstrated time and again for over three decades.

  • Why should I choose Schmieder to recruit engineers?

    With us, you get everything from one single service provider. We act as both recruiters and recruitment consultants, which makes us significantly different to most other recruitment agencies. Your dedicated contact person coordinates the entire recruitment process for you, and will be in constant contact with you and the potential candidates. This enables us to ensure that the applicants are a perfect fit for your company both personally and professionally, and that we are a partner on your level that can be trusted. You can also count on a fast response.

  • What does collaborating with a recruitment agency for engineers involve?

    You inform us of your requirements and expectations, and we will then start searching for suitably qualified engineering professionals on your behalf. As part of our service, which we are continually improving, we will create your job advertisements, take care of the entire recruitment process, conduct preliminary interviews and narrow down the choice of the most suitable candidates for you. Taking responsibility for coordinating appointments and keeping in touch with you right through to the conclusion of a contract are all part and parcel of the service we offer.

  • How does a recruitment agency work?

    To be able to offer you the best possible service, we attach great importance to providing a personal touch. During the initial consultation, we will determine your exact requirements and share important information. Throughout the entire process, your contact person will be on hand to provide you with advice and support. Aside from providing you with an excellent choice of candidates, we will help you to coordinate appointments and will be happy to answer any questions you have about your potential new employee.

  • What happens if the person recruited does not start their job?

    If the person recruited does not start their job, Schmieder GmbH will endeavour to fill the position as quickly as possible, without any additional cost to you. If, for example, a longer notice period should result in a gap that needs to be bridged, Schmieder GmbH also has candidates on its books who can be deployed at short notice to provide temporary cover as part of its personnel leasing service.

  • When does a fee have to be paid to the recruitment agency?

    A fee only has to be paid if we are successful, i.e. if a contract is offered to one or more of the specialists put forward by Schmieder GmbH.

  • How do you recruit suitable specialists?

    Finding the right people is becoming increasingly difficult in an ever-changing labour market. That is why we use a variety of (digital) channels to find the right staff for you – not just professionally, but personally too. In addition to the well-known online platforms, we also have excellent relationships with universities and further education institutions with whom we regularly collaborate to fill entry-level positions. 

  • What are the benefits of a recruitment agency for companies?

    If your long-term plans include growing your team with the vacancy to be filled in addition to a disposable personnel budget, then a recruitment agency is the right choice for you. When recruiting people, we not only take care of the time-consuming process of screening suitable specialists and executives, but we also interview the candidates in person to ensure that they are the perfect fit your company – not just professionally, but personally too. This helps to keep your investments predictable and leaves you free to focus on what matters most.
