About us

BBRecruiting helps companies to find specialist and management staff – especially for sales and marketing as well as for internal management functions – via direct headhunting in the social media on the internet. As headhunters with offices in Duesseldorf, Hamburg and Munich we find targeted specialists and executives for our clients from the industrial, trade and services sectors, and fill their vacancies successfully with the appropriate candidates. We either already know candidates for a vacant position or we find them in particular by using direct headhunting in the social media on the internet to inform them of vacancies at innovative growth-oriented companies, and to help them take advantage of new career opportunities. The enormous growth in the number of users and the large increase in the acceptance of social media such as LinkedIn, Xing, Experteer etc. now make the use of the social networks feasible in the recruiting sector.

Due to the decrease in the quantity and the quality of responses to job advertisements in print and online, direct headhunting of suitable employees via the internet is currently the method which is producing the best results. So why not make use of our instruments and experience for your next recruiting project? Our clients are innovative growth-oriented medium-sized companies, also often sales offices of international companies, which we support in achieving their ambitious targets. In this way, BBRecruiting has established itself as the expert partner for all aspects of filling vacancies for specialists and management staff in sales, marketing and engineering.
