When it comes to “recruitainment,” or experience-oriented, personnel development, Lutz Leichsenring is a pioneer. In 2000 Leichsenring founded Nachtausgabe.de, one of the biggest online event platforms in the 2000s. There he reached out to young people through various online channels and event formats.
His agency, Young Targets, which operates in Berlin, Dusseldorf and London, has taken the lead when it comes to offbeat employer branding and recruiting events. More than 200 software and technology companies, including Volkswagen, EY, Datev, Siemens and Daimler, comprise Young Targets’ customers, each with an incredible demand for IT talent.
Lutz is also engaged in the music and creative industries: He works as a spokesman for Clubcommission e.V., and as a consultant and author. His most recent publications are "Recruiting im Social Web" (Business Village Verlag), "Recrutainment" (SpringerGabler) und “Gravitationsfeld Pop” (transcript Verlag).
Matthias Schleuthner is an expert in IT recruiting. He has worked as a headhunter in his own consulting company for more than 15 years and filled vacancies for IT- and software specialists mainly in the digital industry in Germany.
A little over 2 years ago he and his partner founded and established the reverse job market place 4scotty.com based in Berlin. The platform is focusing on quickly and easily bringing IT experts and companies together. Therefore the application process is turned upside-down and companies apply for suitable candidates.
Matthias knows all difficulties in IT recruiting on company and candidate side and advises companies on how to win new IT colleagues more successfully.
