The needle in the haystack.“
Search and recruitment is very much a people business. It is not only about roles, but essentially about individuals – who are pursuing an individual and unique career path. For you as a company, this means hiring an outstanding colleague who not only possesses excellent credentials and relevant experience, but brings exactly what you are seeking: The right personality.
In order to find these candidates, I thoroughly search the haystack, namely the entire relevant candidate market. While working on an assignment, my services are highly bespoke, making the most of my long-standing comprehensive network combined with a highly discreet and professional direct search approach.
Schulte Legal Search exclusively focuses on placing lawyers at all levels of seniority into Legal and Compliance positions with leading corporates and banks, primarily in Southern Germany. As a one-man boutique search firm I am your single point of contact, am highly flexible and can concentrate on what matters most: Delivering excellent results – also in highly time-critical assignments.
starts with listening.“
For me, establishing and further building long standing relationships with clients and candidates is at the heart of what I do. Hence I take the time to comprehensively understand my clients‘ and candidates‘ needs, requirements and goals. Listening is the core competency of my daily work and essential to advise precisely and to add real value – while delivering results in search assignments for clients but equally while giving tailor-made career advice to candidates.
I have been working in the legal market for over 15 years, for the last 10 years as a legal recruitment consultant and before that during more than 5 years as a lawyer and as a management consultant with well-known firms in Munich. During this time, I have built a comprehensive network, extensive market knowledge and an impressive track record.
I am pleased with the trustful and sustainable relationships with clients and candidates which have come as a result of me successfully filling numerous legal and compliance roles at all levels of seniority with leading corporates and banks in Germany.
„I will tell you frankly
if I cannot assist you.“
Following every enquiry, I will give you my realistic perception of the market for the position you are seeking to fill. I will then explain my search strategy to you in detail – including time and costs involved.
I only take on assignments for which I can see a high probability of success within a reasonable time frame. For each assignment, I develop a tailor-made search strategy, making the most of both my own comprehensive network and a highly professional and discreet direct search approach. By doing so, I can also reach out to candidates who are not actively looking for a new position – often the best in (and not only on) the market.
Upon instruction I immediately start the search and usually deliver results within two to three weeks. Afterwards, I am happy to advise you during the entire hiring process until your preferred candidate starts with you.
It is however essential for my approach to frankly and directly tell you should there be any aspect that may prevent a successful search for you. In my view, this only strengthens trust between you and me.
„A legal career needs careful planning and consideration.“
Thinking back on my own career as a lawyer, I would have been happy to have had an advisor providing me with market insight and guidance. Back then however, I had to rely on my own research and my own assumptions about the market.
With this in mind, I offer high-quality advice for a long-term successful legal career. I am happy to have an initial discussion even if you are just looking to find out more about the market before considering your options. When we speak in more detail, I will guide you through suitable options and we can discuss for which type of vacancy I shall keep an eye open for you.
My main interest is not only your CV, but particularly the individual behind it. I want to gain a clear and in-depth understanding of your motivation and goals and my aim is to help you achieve these. I offer you an open and honest dialogue.
When I have introduced you to one of my clients, I am with you at every step of the way and offer you as much support and input in the process as you would like. Please feel free to contact me for any other questions you may have.
