Executive Search is the targeted search, personal contact and selection of management and board members on behalf of companies and public institutions. The increasing complexity of the globalised economy and the challenges in the markets in which our clients operate increasingly require tailor-made recruiting processes. The uniqueness of each recruitment requires a search strategy that is tailored to the client, the position and the requirements for the candidate. A partner as an equal who knows your needs and challenges is crucial for your recruiting success.

Our Service

Meister Executive Search AG is specialised in «Headhunting». The direct approach is the most efficient, discreet and usually also the most expedient approach to recruiting hand-picked, highly qualified executives. More than 80 percent of all interesting candidates are not actively looking for a professional challenge. Therefore, a competent, sensitive and targeted direct approach lays the foundation for instilling the motivation for a change. We frequently experience how first human curiosity grows into a solid interest in the position. 

We proceed systematically, precisely and discreetly in our market analysis and direct contact with the candidate. Our services are characterised by professional and structured search-, selection- and acquisition processes which have clear project and time plans – creating transparency and guaranteeing success.

Our consultants and research analysts have their finger on the pulse of the economy drawing from many years of experience and in-depth knowledge of the markets. The extensive recruiting expertise of our consultants supports your selection of the right person with the required credentials and personality matching your corporate culture.

For market analysis and research, we work exclusively with our professionally trained in-house research centre. We offer recruitment from one source and can therefore guarantee quality, speed, confidentiality and compliance with data protection guidelines. We create a trusting atmosphere for our clients and candidates, which is characterised by personal support.

Our claim: Exceeding expectations through customized solutions, competence and passion!

Transparent conditions
& guarantee

We work exclusively on a sole mandate basis. We are committed to going the extra mile for you and are convinced that mutual trust and work towards a successful recruiting should be reflected in a transparent price model.

The total fee is divided into three parts. At the beginning of the mandate, we are entitled to a basic fee for our extensive market mapping, preselection and challenging interviews conducted by the consultant. The two subsequent fees are linked to the successful progress of the mandate. The second fee is only due once the clients invite the first qualified candidates to an interview. Lastly, upon signature of the employee contract, our clients remunerate the success fee for completing the recruitment process.
Our fees are based on simple and transparent terms and conditions. A fixed fee is set at the beginning which, thanks to our many years of experience, is based on the estimated effort and complexity of the assignment. We also offer our clients a double guarantee: we keep searching systematically until the ideal person is found and, if necessary, guarantee a replacement free of charge.

Our clients are protected! Meister Executive Search AG commits to not approach any employees from clients.
