Award - Headhunter of the Year


Experteer, the organizer, calls the award for the best personnel consultant the “Oscar of the personnel consulting industry” - an award that is becoming increasingly important every year.


The IT Personalberatung earned a nomination in the category “Candidate Experience”. Contrary to the original Academy Awards, the nominees are chosen not by the jury but by the public - in our case, the candidates who considered or even implemented career changes with our support.


We are very pleased that our candidates acknowledge the benefits of cooperating with personnel consulting agencies and appreciate our services as well as our individual, personal and professional advice, particularly in view of the fact that the candidate market in the IT sector is very demanding and IT specialists are highly selective when it comes to working with a headhunter.

FOCUS Business – IT-Personalberatung among the "Top Recruitment Agencies 2019"


Each year, FOCUS BUSINESS conducts an independent survey among HR managers in companies, candidates and applicants.


In the current survey, the “IT-Personalberatung Dr. Dienst & Wenzel GmbH & Co.KG” was rated among the “Top Recruitment Agencies 2019” in the two main categories “Executive Search” and “Professional & Specialist Search” and was recommended as leading “Headhunter”.


To assess the agencies, clients were asked to rate i.e. the quality and selection of candidate profiles, the speed (processing) as well as the value for money. Applicants were asked to rate i.e. the quality and selection of the positions offered as well as the quality of consulting and service.


The list of “Top Recruitment Agencies” was published in the FOCUS BUSINESS magazine’s issue of May 2019.
