Recruitment of complete, functioning teams that already work together successfully


When talking about classic headhunting, one often refers to the search for a single professional or executive. The term team hunting, however, describes the recruitment of complete, functioning teams that already work together successfully. This was particularly the case in recent years, but also in the chemical, consumer goods, automotive and machine building industries. Whole teams, for the functional areas such as development, sales, marketing or even management, make it easier for the customer to work on the project while at the same time weaken the competition company.

Further advantages for a well-trained team to recruit is that the customer reduces the time needed to train up and the recruitment time will be shortened. An executive personality of the team (also known as a teamleader), which at the same time allows the team members to work together with the right headhunter for a joint change, is at the same time the right and suitable candidate for the customer, because of his convincing performance and social characteristics from the past.

However, there are not only cases where companies are looking for teams but teams whose service and know-how are no longer strategic to the current employer will report to us so that we can then find a new company with the teams. In practice, we see that the need for team hunts is increasing. Five years ago there was a question about team hunting once a month, today we are experiencing an average of one request per month. Companies from abroad who want to invest in a new division commission us to win entire teams. For this team hunt, you need a headhunter who can not only find the candidates, but also inspire and motivate them to change. At the latest, they will learn why hunting heads are called - the Champions League.
