What is a job placement agency (Vermittlungsagentur)?
In order to find suitable, qualified employees in the face of a shortage of skilled workers, companies are increasingly turning to recruitment agencies. This service is offered by job placement agencies and is designed to match vacant positions with suitable candidates.
The job placement agencies bring applicants and employers together by referring potential employees from Germany and abroad.
Depending on the scope of the service, there are different types of job placement:
- basic placement (matching supply and demand, mediation/referral of job offers)
- placement on behalf of employers who need candidates with specific qualifications and expertise (headhunters),
- placement and supervision of the entire process from recruitment, employment and termination of employment, as well as other additional services.
