Most recruiters are primarily concerned with themselves. They do not or hardly explore the candidate. They just want to ‘score’. This is why Batenborch was once founded. We focus on the person, the candidate, the professional in front of us. For the full 100%. What are your desires, dreams, and ambitions? What is your motivation? How do you want to develop yourself? What does happiness mean to you? We listen and we keep on asking questions, until we know what we want to know. Our interviews often develop into ‘experiences’.
We build on a durable relation because we want to stay in touch with people. This has given us a network that we are proud of. Next to that, we continuously pro-actively approach people we do now know yet. We discover people that others cannot find. Especially when it comes to sales, marketing, and digital. That’s where our specialism is at.
At Batenborch, we think in the long term. We do not believe in quick wins. We help companies in achieving a higher commercial result. Sometimes we even pro-actively introduce people, pareto candidates, that can really make the difference. People who only want to be mediated by us, because we have known them for so long. We are ‘career enhancers’!
And where is it heading towards?
Technology develops quickly. Many jobs disappear or drastically change. What competences will be necessary in the future? That is what we are concerned about. We want to be a knowledge centre, a think tank for companies and for industries. In which people are always put first. That will never change at Batenborch.
We are driven. We keep on going until we can deliver. We perform to realise what we promise.
We think like entrepreneurs. We are solution-oriented. We think outside of the beaten tracks and we are not afraid of (unexpected) surprises.
We are specialists, no generalists. We know what we are good at, what we want to be best at. Sales, Marketing, and Digital. That’s our territory. Entirely defined.
Building the best connection between one person and the other is critical to success. It is the basis for a strong and successful team. Building those teams is our ultimate goal.
We want to know, understand, and figure out everything that’s on our plate. We keep on asking questions until we exactly know where the desires and frustrations are at. This is essential for making the right connection. Our curiosity is without boundaries.
We know that integrity is of the utmost importance in order to cooperate with (mutual) trust. And to reach the best results.
We find it important to cooperate with a good partner, that understands our business and especially also understands what competences we are looking for. Batenborch is very professional. They map our needs well. In doing this, they have a clear image of the market. They know where the good people are at. But they also know if these people fit with us regarding culture and dynamics.

The collaboration with Batenborch was a success because we simply ended up hiring the talent we were searching for. The whole process was smooth and efficient. Communication was personal and friendly, but also very professional in terms of effectivity and timing. Our huge surprise, which is a proof of how smart Batenborch is- was that the candidates were actually somewhere 'hidden' in our own network and contacts. But Batenborch spotted them! We are very happy with our new talents and would work again with Batenborch in the future.

We stimulate individuals to become real entrepreneurs. We have a hands-on mentality and we like to stretch people. Team spirit is important, we need each other to be successful! Of course, self-development is also really important. Batenborch invests a lot of time in development and training for the individual consultants. This is something I really value, I like to keep on learning and developing myself. I am still reflecting about my future, but Batenborch is definitely helping me with this.

Managing Director Batenborch International - Germany
Batenborch always tries to put the person and his ambitions in front and to not just go for the fulfilment of the position by the client. They also dare to make other propositions and to stimulate companies with this, to think differently, to consider what the real needs are. The intake meeting is diligent and critical, which provides the basis for a positive choice for or against a position. One of Batenborch’s strong points is that I really felt coached as a candidate and that they were capable of understanding my doubts and offering me answers and solutions.
The step they enabled me to take has met my wishes and my ambitions to personally and professionally grow and to gain new experiences.
