We count some 150 companies as reference customers, having had a collaboration in the last 10 years. For more than 50 of them, we have been active in multiple collaborations. Considering our key accounts, we are on a level of at least 8 mandates in this time frame. Looking at our top accounts, we have reached around 20 sucessful recruitments each.
Triple Search includes conventional publishing, active approach to already positively interviewed matches of our candidate pool and direct acquisition of new potential candidates by search identification. Triple Search has proven to be extremely successful, as conventional publication leads to only 1/3 of successfully closed mandates. 2/3 of closings are the result of direct headhunting, be it among known candidates of our pool or among new identification of potential matches. Following the Triple Search method, we are able to generate a good shortlist selection by just one publication loop. For the last years, direct headhunting approach was the main success factor and is expected to be even of increasing importance in future.
Following our philosophy, we are successful in a wide range of managing and expert functions. Our spectrum of mandates consists of around 20 % C-level positions, 40 % managing roles and 40 % expert functions. Concerning C-level and management positions, we have had multiple mandates in all functional areas. With respect to experts, engineer positions in sales, sales support, product management, engineering, production and logistics are of disproportionate importance. The same applies for specialist in technical writing and intellectual property.
