Your specialist partner
for the insurance and financial services industries.

VFS sees itself as an exclusive recruitment consultancy for the insurance and financial services sectors.

We focus on the placement and support of executive and highly-qualified professionals, and on covering all the personnel-related topics and issues concerning insurers, brokers, in-house brokers or financial service providers.

Our many years of experience and networking in the market allow us swift access to interesting and suitable key players.

Any contact with potential candidates is made directly, professionally, discreetly and with particularly attention paid to the interests of our clients.

The structured VFS recruiting process:

Over the past 20 years, we have perfected our systematic recruiting process with a view to using both our experience and network as efficiently and effectively as possible to complete the tasks assigned to us.

The VFS recruiting process consists of three phases:

  1. Analysis of the situation, environment and needs of our clients

  2. Recording and elaboration of a detailed search requirement profile

  3. Creation of a target company list agreed with the client

  4. Co-ordination of a schedule for the project and an internal procedure on the part of client

  5. Assembly of the project team for the search request

  1. Identification of potential and suitable candidates for the vacancy 

  2. Direct approach of the candidates identified for the position and receipt of paperwork if they show an interest

  3. Pre-selection of the received documents and the arranging and conducting of telephone interviews

  4. Conducting structured personal interviews with the candidates in the event that they are suitable and interested

  5. Preparation of confidential suitability reports for the candidates (presentation of personal and professional development accompanied by the consultant’s assessment concerning the suitability of the candidate in terms of their personality and expertise)

  6. Presentation of the candidates to the client and the organisation of interviews

  7. Complete monitoring of the entire process, up to and including the issues of counter-offer management, obtaining references and financial information

  8. Regular information to the client concerning the current status of the project in accordance with the agreed communication strategy

  9. Intensive support and coaching of candidates in all process steps, until a contract is signed

It is a matter of course for us to maintain contact with both sides even after the successful placement.

If desired, we can also offer our clients tailor-made packages on the topic of “on-boarding coaching” and various coaching activities in everyday working life or for the personal and functional development of employees

As a matter of principle, we are always interested in long-term and sustainable co-operation and in maintaining contact with people

"Our tomorrow will be different, if we change the present –
and supporting you in this, is a matter close to my heart."
