Whom we are currently
Meet the Team
"What always challenges and excites me about the work here is the enormous variety. There isn't a day when you don't learn something new or get a new perspective on a topic. Our team is united by the common goal of getting a little better every day and overcoming challenges together."
"The work between partners, consultants and sourcers really takes place at eye level. It is desired and expected that people express their opinions and give each other feedback, so that everyone has the opportunity to help shape our processes, improve them and develop together."
Senior Market Analyst
"Trust, curiosity and excellence have characterized my everyday work at i-potentials from the very beginning. Here I have learned what it means to take responsibility for the future of companies and candidates and to make my individual contribution in a professionally authentic way. Facing this challenge is what I strive for every day anew together with the team."
"After many years in practice, I was already in the process of setting up my own business as a consultant anyway and had previously known i-potentials from the client perspective. I then had the opportunity to join as a freelancer and quickly realised: this is the right thing for me. On the one hand, I found the range of mandates exciting, because I am a curious and versatile person who likes to get to know new things, design and actively implement them. On the other hand, it is also appealing to really manage a search mandate strategically from the first briefing to the appointment and to really work at eye level with the client - you rarely have that in operational HR, even in a management role."
"i-potentials is characterised by teamwork like no other recruitment consultancy I know. That's something I find incredibly valuable and motivating about working here: you are of course responsible for your own projects, but you can always count on the support of the entire organisation when it comes to delivering good results for clients and candidates. That's why you need team spirit to be successful - it's not for someone who is only interested in their own turnover and their own clients. As a result, the cooperation is not so strongly characterised by hierarchy; you can feel the "we-thought" very clearly here."
"In addition to working with the great team and the exciting projects, what excites me most about my work at i-potentials is that I learn something new almost every day. Observing over several years how organizational structures and C-levels develop in different company phases and sizes not only helps me in my daily work."
