Fahr-Becker mediates between employers and professionals, such as IT analysts, IT architects, BI specialists, DBA specialists, ERP/CRM/ECM specialists, software developers, software testers, software engineers, IT specialists for industrial automation, infrastructure architects and engineers, network specialists, project managers, IT managers but also sales and marketing specialists.
Strong employee-employer relationships
We feel that a truly good match between candidate and employer should result in a long-lasting working relationship between the two parties. That’s why at Fahr-Becker we are very interested in the reasons and motives of both the candidate and the employer.
We therefore go to great lengths to try to understand both parties. To this end, we use our specialised recruitment consultants, who generally have a degree in psychology. Furthermore, we use the tried and tested Career Values Assessment method. With this we analyse whether the candidate’s personal motives are in sync with the type of work, career values and the employer’s work environment. In this way we determine whether they are a good match.
The combination of our years of specialisation in the recruitment of IT professionals and our psychological selection method has resulted in hundreds of satisfied and usually long-term collaborations between employers and IT specialists.
Crystal-clear collaboration agreements
At Fahr-Becker we only set to work once we have a clear request for the recruitment and selection of an IT specialist, from both the candidate and the employer. So no empty promises, but clear agreements regarding the position we are looking to fill. When doing so we handle the details and information supplied by the candidate and the employer with the utmost of confidentiality.
A pleasant working relationship between the candidate and the employer is our number one priority. At Fahr-Becker we ensure this in a congenial, welcoming, service-oriented and accessible manner.
Fahr‑Becker’s working method
Candidate as well as employer central
We aim for ‘the perfect match’ between candidate and employer. In order to realise this we use a special, meticulous working method which is different from what candidates and employers are used to.
- It starts by making it clear what exactly the wishes of the candidate and the employer are. We do this using the usual job profiles, CVs and motivations. As per standard this information is clear and complete, as may be expected from a good recruiter. What Fahr-Becker offers as extra is the extensive clarification and background information. It gives both parties the necessary understanding of the assessment of that ‘standard’ information.
- This is followed by a more detailed examination. In particular we consider the motivation of both the candidate and the employer very important. In order to understand this well and to make it clear, we use a psychological approach. We offer both parties a thorough understanding of what exactly they can expect from one another. To this end an in-depth interview is conducted by one of our psychologists. In addition, a supporting assessment is carried out.
- For as far as possible the mutual references are set down and shared.
- Lastly, we pay a great deal of attention to what, from the perspective of both parties, the result of such a collaboration should be, in both the short and the long term.
The result of this meticulous approach is documented in a clear portfolio, which is shared with both the candidate and the employer before they meet each other. In this way, both parties receive extensive information about one another, thereby providing a good basis for a constructive meeting. In our experience it is not only the resulting portfolio that is illuminating. It is by going through the process that both parties are given many answers and insights, which are necessary for a well-considered decision.
Guidance, advice and support
During the entire selection process Fahr-Becker naturally acts as adviser to both parties. Here, too, our psychological approach has major benefits. We are ideally suited to empathise fully in talks and in any situation that may arise. And if desired, we will support you with advice and support.
At the end we like to reflect together with the candidate and the employer and evaluate the experiences. This creates trust in the correctness of the decision taken, whilst we can continue to work on improving our services.
Mission and Vision
Information and communication technology is driven by people’s constant desire to innovate and develop. We want to ensure that the best people and their specialisations are always available at the right time, so that this innovation and development can continue without interruption.
Having people and their specialisations in specific positions in the field of IT available at the right time is possible if there is a firm grip on the job market. The job market has now become fully transparent. But the numbers of people in that market are so vast that it is almost impossible to see the wood for the trees.
Recruitment and selection is after all about the ability to find available, qualified staff for potentially long-term, mutually-beneficial collaborations with employers. We facilitate this collaboration by means of a pleasant, decent, sound and confidential working method. In doing so, we use our psychological recruitment and selection method to come to the best possible match. Due to our focus on the IT job market, we succeed in bringing together the right parties with the right motives and in creating a long-lasting collaboration between those parties.
