Who we are

Our Hamburg team is curious and full of high achieving individuals who all join forces to create results for people. You will meet colleagues who have extensive experience and know-how in Executive Search, and others who are experts in Talent Services (Assessment Centres, Leadership Development programs, Business Coachings, etc.). With an environment that represents the meritocratic culture of Mercuri Urval, you will be joining a varied team of Partners, Team Leaders, Executive Researchers, and Consultants.

I would describe the different teams as having a collaborative approach to drive change in the local area and cross-borders. Everyone builds on each other's competencies. says Dominic Pfau, Team Leader & Partner. A willingness to share professional and personal experiences is common for the team members – from Team Leaders to Coordinators, to Researchers, Partners, and Executive Search Consultants. This strengthens the flat structure in the office and connects everyone interested in worldwide projects.

Office atmosphere

The team is a unique group of individuals with a winning attitude towards their daily work. Freedom, humour and expertise are core in the office atmosphere – regardless of the consultants' age, sector focus or time in the company. In 2017, the team moved into new facilities in the middle of Hamburg's industrial area close to the business community. The view from the windows is inspiring. The large open space inside the office supports the daily knowledge sharing in the teams - but there are also several hidden corners in the office if required.

The team is known for being social and its active spirit. Annual social traditions are skiing trips, go-charting events, bowling nights, or exciting time in escape rooms – all followed by delicious dinners. Coming together outside of work makes our team extremely strong and work more fun and exciting says Volker Schultz, Team Leader & Partner.

Joining our team in Hamburg is an opportunity to take your career to new heights - a space with no limits for which client sector to work in, or no borders for which country to create impact for – Germany, across Northern Europe, or globally. Grab your opportunity. Join our team.
