Career opportunitiess

How does Experteer ensure that the posted jobs are up-to-date?

We permanently review the open positions currently posted by the companies and synchronise them with our database. This means that we remain as up-to-date as possible.

How are the salary benchmarks calculated?

Experteer shows you salary benchmarks for the positions posted on Experteer. The salary benchmark should serve you as orientation factor when assesing an open position.

Experteer Benchmark

The Experteer Benchmark is an Experteer service that shows you the estimated market value of a specific position. It is not given by the recruiters, and it is an estimate based solely on market data.

Experteer's estimation is based on both the analysis of internal data, as well as external information. The Experteer Benchmark is the average market value at the respective level. This value may be up to 15% higher or lower in each company (greater variation may be possible in individual cases).

Recruiter Benchmark

The Recruiter Benchmark is given by the recruiter advertising the job.

The Recruiter Benchmark serves as a reference. The actual salary to be obtained however, depends on factors such as professional experience and expertise. The size and location of the company also play a role.

It may happen that the recruiter cannot disclose the financial package for a specific position, in which case the Benchmark can be set as 'confidential'.

The distinction between the Experteer Benchmark and the Recruiter Benchmark cannot be made in the logged-out area. Log in now or register and see which Benchmark applies applies to each job.

Experteer will not pass on any personal data to third parties. The only exception is the publication of your profile for recruiters. However, you can specify yourself whether your profile will be shown to headhunters in full, anonymously or not at all. You can also specify yourself whether your profile will be shown to HR managers from companies in full, anonymously or not at all.

Your application can only be viewed by the headhunter or HR manager who specifically posted the job. You can decide if your profile can be viewed or not.

All data is always transmitted via a secure SSL link. This means that nobody can access your data while it is being transmitted to us.

Who can access my profile?

Headhunters as well as HR managers can register on Experteer. Before being approved, each new registration is carefully validated by our internal research team.

As a candidate, you decide which recruiters have access to your profile. Experteer offers you various display settings for headhunters and HR managers. You have full control over which recruiters can view your profile.

You can control and adjust your display settings for headhunters and HR managers in "My Profile". You can also see how your profile is presented to the respective recruiter.

You can determine whether a headhunter or a recruiter can view your profile during the application process.

According to which criteria are recruiters checked and approved?

All headhunters and HR managers must provide comprehensive feedback about themselves and the company they are working for when registering. These details are then checked by Experteer. To do this, we make use of the headhunter's homepage which should also provide some background on the company. Only after this procedure can the headhunter's account be activated.

By accepting our General Terms and Conditions, every recruiter commits to treating all obtained information about a candidate as confidential.


What is the difference between the various types of Experteer memberships?

We offer you two different types of membership:

  1. As an Experteer Basic Member you only have limited access to all of our services: You can create your profile for free, and be discovered by recruiters, but you will not be able to see which recruiters have viewed it nor respond to their contact requests. Your access to our career postings is limited to only twenty percent of our job market, and the company name and link will be concealed. Recruiters can contact you, but you only respond when recruiters provide you with a voucher.
  2. Only Experteer Premium Members can take advantage of all of Experteer's features: You will have complete access to all pre-screened executive jobs - that's 5x more than with a Basic Membership. You can reply to all contact requests from recruiters, and view which recruiters have viewed your profile. Your chances of being discovered and contacted also dramatically increase: recruiters contact Premium candidates significantly more often, as they can immediately reply to and approve contact requests.
What are the notice periods?

You can cancel your membership at any time. The same applies to your Premium Membership, which you can cancel at any time during the time period you book. Of course, you will still have complete access to all Premium benefits until the end of the period you have booked on Experteer.

My annual salary is considerably lower than £50,000 . Can I register with Experteer anyways?

Experteer focuses on leading professionals with high-quality positions starting from £50,000 . As an executive career service, we pride ourselves on providing optimal customer satisfaction. This is best achieved by entering accurate personal and professional career history data.
