Big data, cloud, IoT, industry 4.0 and artificial intelligence.

Whether it's big data, cloud, IoT, industry 4.0 or artificial intelligence: The digital transformation is changing business models today within a very short time frame – in virtually every industry. 

At NELEX we are convinced that executive searches in this digital environment can only be successful if HR consulting is consistently re-thought, so recruiting uses not only essential personal contacts, but also agile, transparent and innovative processes in order to find the right candidates. That is also why we are lean, why our consultants work as a team, and why we are transforming the actual recruiting process from a predominantly “manual data-collection process” into an automated “data- and intelligence-driven” process.

Using AI allows us to use huge amounts of unstructured data for selecting candidates in searches. The result is a much larger and, above all, more exact selection of candidates, which we can offer our clients.

This allows us to introduce our clients quickly to specialists and executives that perfectly fit their needs – often in just three to four weeks. NELEX also sees itself as a long-term career coach for candidates, advising and supporting them over the long term.

Our goal is to define the future of executive searches with the combination of traditional consulting know-how and digital innovation – providing unique added value for clients and candidates. That is what we call the Next Level Executive Search.


We are represented by our experienced consultants not only at the leading IT focus locations in the entire DACH region, but also in Shanghai and Cape Town – two of the most important digitisation hotspots worldwide. Our consultants are well connected in the various industries.
