» The espiridon team is extremely professional. On the one hand, it adapts excellently to our company’s context and aside from the bare facts has a nose for which “types” we are looking for and fit with us. On the other hand, candidates feel they are in the best hands at espiridon. They are very well informed and prepared, and accompanied throughout the entire process with great attention and personal commitment.«

»Headhunter or executive search consultant: What is the right title for this job? In my career as a manager, I have encountered many executive search consultants who were not very well-versed in advising people. Needless to say, there are good and bad consultants, but in most cases I didn’t see the advisory aspect. My positive experiences with espiridon are rooted in the fact that the word “consulting” truly has a meaning. I was most impressed by espiridon’s efforts to do justice to both the candidate and us as their client. I see espiridon not only as an executive search consultancy and reliable partner, but also as a sparring partner in all HR matters. Even when this means having to say that a person is not right for a job or that a certain job would entail twice the work for the same amount of money. I am glad to give espiridon and Sascha Frank a positive reference.«

»The cooperation with Sascha Frank and espiridon is outstanding and a lot of fun. He is excellent at seeing things from the perspective of companies, their environment and their culture. Thanks to his extensive network of contacts in the IT environment, he has very good access to a wide range of different profiles and managers at all levels, including the C level. But perhaps the most important thing is that he does not let himself get discouraged by setbacks on the way to optimum filling of positions. He never gives up until the job is done. I’ll definitely work with espiridon again.«
