Welcome to Fischer HRM!

We are an international team of consultants based in Düsseldorf supporting companies in all aspects of human resources management.

We find the right people to fill your vacant positions worldwide – and by ‘right’, we not only mean in terms of qualifications but also with regards to your corporate culture. We analyse your current and future staff structure – and the potential of your teams and managers to develop individual personnel solutions.

Our team of 30 employees is a competent mix of native speakers and HR professionals with experience in Japan, China, Iran, Russia/GUS, South and Central America, Eastern Europe, and Africa. They operate our Country Desks, are familiar with the standard practices in their markets, and are able to competently assess how candidates will fit into the corporate culture.

Using up-to-date communication methods from our base in Düsseldorf, we can source employees with international experience either for Germany or other subsidiaries around the globe – regardless of where our client company is based.

Quality is our strength – and we mean this in every possible way and with every single partner – with companies, candidates and colleagues. This is the real added value of working with Fischer HRM!

Why Düsseldorf as a location for Fischer GmbH?

Because we and Düsseldorf go together.
The “Rhine City” of Düsseldorf is like us: cosmopolitan, tolerant, entrepreneurial, creative and versatile as well as reliable.
The “Rhine City” of Düsseldorf affords an international network, just like us: it extends from east to west, north to south.
Our clients are also just like us: international, often multicultural, companies with offices in countless different countries.


Reliable. Creative. Fast.

Why Munich as a location for Fischer GmbH?

Because we and Munich go together.
Because there are now so many companies in and around Munich using our services that we also wish to offer our clients a local presence.
The “cosmopolitan city with a heart” goes well with us: it is down to earth, reliable and affords a global network.

 

Reliable. Creative. Fast.

Nobody is perfect, but a team can be!

Fischer HRM is a competent and creative team of international consultants working together in a flat hierarchy, which promotes the speed and flexibility with which we do things!

Our mutual appreciation for one another and our diversity allow us to consider projects from all angles and examine all its different aspects.

In addition to highly-qualified consultants and many years of experience, the key to our success here at Fischer HRM is our insight and empathy – acquired through psychological training – to the very individual needs of our customers and candidates.
