Senior Executive Job Opportunities in Germany

All AESC member executive search firms in Germany have access to BlueSteps, a career management service for senior executives used to source candidates for senior executive positions in Germany. Placements are made on all levels, from Director to CEO jobs. So why is the executive recruitment market growing in Germany and why are Executive Search Firms there seeking executive talent?

Germany is ranked first in skill-intensive services including technical services, IT services, and financial services. Although the service industry makes up 71.3% of the country’s GDP, its resilient economy remained strong through the recent recession by drawing support from the manufacturing sector, which makes up 28% of its GDP. As the largest economy in Europe, Germany leads the production and exportation of machinery, vehicles, chemicals, and household equipment by world renowned brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche.

To continue the legacy of leading the European economy away from the recession, the government’s long-term reforms of the economy are opening up areas of domestic demand and renewable energy sources. This resilience is what drives 37% of the Fortune Global 500 companies to be headquartered in Germany.
