Why working as a consultant is a great next step in your career?

The need for employers always starts from the need of the company - it can be either related to coping with the current workload or aimed at growth. The need can also be genuinely project-based: requiring expertise and additional resources to complete a project. It is also often the case that, despite an urgent need, direct recruitment is not possible. There can be many reasons, such as the lack of a recruitment permit, a limited number of person-years, or substitution. None of this is a bad thing for a job seeker - on the contrary! Your career can start with a new kind of upswing through staffing, working as a consultant. Through staffing, you get:

  • An interesting job in the desired organization
  • A career partner who genuinely cares about you and supports you in any situation
  • Opportunity to showcase your skills & gain valuable work experience
  • Get yourself into an attractive organization & opportunity to convince them of your skills
  • Plenty of experience and valuable contacts
  • To be part of an international group with thousands of ambitious young professionals around Europe
  • Growing opportunities as many of our consultants stays with us for years to grow by working for multiple clients one after another

Our pride is that a big part of our staffing positions ends with the consultant being recruited to the client. In many cases that is the common goal of everyone during the consultant relationship.
