1. introduction

These General Terms and Conditions apply between TALENTLOTSEN GmbH, represented by the Managing Director Jan Wulf, Große Elbstraße 133, 22767 Hamburg - hereinafter referred to as "TALENTLOTSEN" - and the customer.


2. services

The subject of the contract between the parties is the placement of personnel by TALENTLOTSEN to the customer. For this purpose, TALENTLOTSEN offers different services as described below, according to which individual service elements, payment modalities, etc. are determined.

The customer is obligated to immediately inform TALENTLOTSEN of the conclusion of the contract with the applicant. This applies not only to the conclusion of an employment relationship, but also to service and work contracts, as well as agency relationships ("corresponding legal relationship"), insofar as they have come about through the mediation of TALENTLOTSEN.

A mediation within the meaning of the General Terms and Conditions shall also be deemed to have been effectively concluded if

  • the contractual relationship between the customer and the applicant has been concluded subject to a condition precedent.
  • the applicant is hired by the customer for a position other than the one for which he/she was originally presented.
  • the applicant is hired for the original or another position within 12 months of an unsuccessful placement with the client.
  • the customer concludes a corresponding contract with the applicant by circumventing the mediation by TALENTLOTSEN. This is particularly the case if the applicant is to be employed by a group of companies within the meaning of § 18 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) after his data has been transmitted by TALENTLOTSEN.

TALENTLOTSEN receive a commission claim for the placement, which depends on the agreed annual gross target salary between the candidate and the client. The remuneration model, is determined by the choice of the service package.

  • reviewing or obtaining any regulatory approvals or work permits relevant to the legal relationship between the Applicant and the Client.

  • the examination of the health suitability of the applicant or
  • checking or obtaining police clearance of the applicant.
