Our competences at a glance.

Our services are focussed exclusively on the German and French markets. We offer comprehensive support in the implementation of your payroll accounting in the respective country. Our experienced team of payroll experts will provide you with discreet, comprehensive and competent support to answer all your payroll-related questions in the respective country and minimise risks.

Advice is provided in German, French or English. Each of your payslips is processed by a specialised expert who is familiar with the specific exemptions and complexities in Germany and France. Our payroll team members have extensive training and many years of professional experience, and they always keep their expertise up to date through continuous training programmes.

We simplify the payroll accounting process with clear digital workflows, saving you valuable time and allowing you to focus on legally compliant payroll accounting and advice instead of data entry and administration.

By outsourcing your payroll accounting, you can also protect yourself from staff shortages in your own company. Sickness absence, holidays or staff changes could otherwise delay payroll, but with our service we ensure that your payroll is always processed accurately and on time.

Our expertise lies in the identification and selection of international profiles and executives at middle and senior management levels, both nationally and internationally. We specialise in candidates who are not only suitable for their respective positions, but who also fit well into the international environment of our clients. These candidates generally have the necessary language skills and intercultural understanding to operate successfully in a global working environment.

We create precise skills and requirements profiles that reflect the current realities of the international labour market. Based on this, we search discreetly and directly for suitable candidates, not only checking their professional qualifications and references, but also matching their working methods and personal attitudes with the requirements of an international corporate culture.

Our consulting does not end with the successful placement. We support the international profiles as they enter their position and maintain regular dialogue with them and our international clients. Our language skills in English, French and German enable us to identify suitable international profiles and provide our international clients with the best possible support. This creates long-term relationships characterised by trust and integrity.
