About Headstart

In 2014 Headstart was founded as a pure Recruiting agency. Our existing network of agencies and candidates are well taken care of and at the same time we are continually growing and developing. Throughout Germany we work together with Start Ups, Owner-operated agencies as well as large Networks. Our agile team of experienced professionals allows us to find the right positions from Junior to Head of, from Creative to Consultant and On- and Offline. Since 2019 we offer under the umbrella of our “House of Service” additional advice, support and jump-start: in the field of recruiting, as interim and outsourced HR management, in the form of consulting, coaching and workshops. The big picture is more than the sum of individual parts. In which each individual, team member contributes to a major part in each area. Altogether, we can cover an enormous performance spectrum without losing sight of the individual challenges. Always keep the big picture in mind with focus on detail whilst never losing the joy of working together with one another and with our clients.

Recruiting and Headhunting

For Candidates

Changing jobs isn’t always an easy decision. That's why we'll guide you through the entire process from start to finish and, if you wish, even further.

Home office or open-plan office? Part-time or 40-hour week? Every candidate has individual ideas and expectations for a new job. Together we will find the employer, the tasks and the team that best suits you.

For this, we use our most important tool: Our network! Whether at an international full-service or local design agency, corporation or start-up – we’ll find your new job together!

For Clients

After more than 20 years in the communications industry, we know the difference between what works and what doesn't. And for us this means: taking the time necessary, talking to each other in person (whether online or in person) and identifying needs. 

From consulting to creation to services – whether Creative Director, Digital Native, UX Lead or Marketing Manager – together we find out just what and who you are really looking for. 

Incidentally: in addition to potentials and positions, we also impart knowledge and offer coaching for managers, employees and students.

coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success.
