Headhunter Health Care

As a headhunting agency, we have been supporting companies and organisations in the health care sector in the recruitment of suitable managers and executives as well as specialists and experts since 1993.

We - Kontrast Personalberatung GmbH - work in a qualified and structured manner to ensure that we can present our clients with a selection of suitable candidates quickly.

The Target Profile

When we are entrusted with filling a vacancy in the health care sector, we first define a so-called target profile together with the client, which consists of the competences that the candidate must bring with him or her.

Health Care - More than Medicine and Care

Especially in this sector, target profiling is of great importance, as the occupational groups are diverse and often very specific requirements are placed on the candidates. Our experience in the recruitment of nursing managers as well as senior physicians, chief physicians and specialists helps us to set the right focus during the recruitment process.

Furthermore, the health care sector not only employs specialists in medicine and nursing, but also specialists and managers in administration, IT and technology.

In the field of pharmaceuticals and medical technology – also a part of the health care sector - , medical expertise is combined with technical know-how, which makes the demands on candidates even more diverse and complex. Here, we are commissioned, among other things, with the search for engineers with the relevant key qualifications. Find out more about our expertise in this specific field Here.

Direct Search

Once we have created the target profile, we move on to the next phase of recruitment. Here we use active sourcing to define specific targets and approach them directly, via three different channels: on-site, by telephone and digitally.

For this work, our headhunters not only search for and find these target persons on the open market, but also draw on our internal candidate pool, which we have built up over the past 30 years.

By taking care to approach potential candidates personally and individually, we already achieve a high response rate at this point.

Pre-selection through Target Profile and our Expertise

Before we present the companies and organisations with a selection of potential candidates, we compare the profiles of the candidates with the previously created target profile. By doing so, we ensure to only present truly suitable candidates to our clients. Our many years of experience as headhunters, our specialist knowledge of psychology and our expertise in the health care sector help us with the process.

But at what point does a Headhunter make sense?

Classically, we as a headhunting agency are asked for succession planning of executives or specialists or for filling newly created positions when departments or entire companies are restructured.

Particularly in the health care sector, a single job advertisement is often not enough to find the right candidate, as the demand for specialists and managers is high. At the same time, the companies and organisations have high expectations of the candidates, as both sectors are developing rapidly and dynamically and the candidates need to be up to date with the latest technical and medical knowledge.

Interim Management

As headhunters, we are also frequently commissioned when interim positions are required. Interim management as an HR model can be used in all sectors and specialist areas and makes sense, for example, if new teams, departments or locations are to be built up, permanent staff are absent for a long time or a crisis has to be overcome.
