What does Lintberg do exactly, is a question we get from people who are not yet familiar with us. The short version: Lintberg connects. Lintberg connects candidates, headhunters and clients at the top level: exclusively for positions with an annual salary indication of at least € 100.000.
Lintberg was founded in 2007 to create transparency in this particular segment. Before then, as a candidate you relied on your own network, which meant missing out on interesting job openings because they were published outside the scope of your own network.
At the other end, headhunters were mostly dependent on who they knew. This resulted in clients not always necessarily getting the best, but the best known candidate.
Transparant, yet discreet
Discretion was essential in the € 100K+ segment, but in a rapidly changing online world the demand for more transparancy was on a rise.
Enter Lintberg: the online platform where candidates got access to an exclusive and complete overview of current, guaranteed € 100K+ jobs and a platform where headhunters instantly expanded their network with tens of thousands executive level candidates.
By only giving headhunters access to candidate details, discretion was guaranteed. Corporate recruiters did not - and to this day still don't - have access to our members. This allows you as acandidate to find or get found for your next € 100K+ job, without your employer knowing you're looking around.
Are headhunters still relevant?
Absolutely! Hiring the wrong candidate at an executive level can be a significant potential business expense, far exceeding the fee for an executive search. The expertise, network and insights of a headhunter can be vital in identifying the right candidate.
However, the current market requires change again. An increasing number of corporate recruiters chooses to keep in control of the search process. To keep our overview of € 100K+ positions complete, Lintberg is moving along with this development. Corporate recruiters still don't have access to your member information, but can publish their € 100K+ positions on Lintberg.
Furthermore, Lintberg now also delivers candidate shortlists to headhunters and client. Again, following the adage discretion first. We will always contact you first, before introducting your profile to a client.
