We play to our strengths

Optares helps companies recruit highly-qualified senior and mid-level managers. Founded in Oldenburg in north-western Germany in 2003, our staff of 30 consultants recruits top people for companies throughout Germany. Our clients range from start-ups and family-run firms through mid-size businesses to global players. All our consultants have many years of experience in either the automotive or the medical sector and are specialists who know their industries well.

We set high standards for the quality of our consultants and the for the relationships with our clients. You can rely on full confidentiality in all your dealings with Optares, which is one important reason our clients stay with us. By choosing Optares, you are choosing a partner who is reliable and has in-depth understanding of your business.



By focusing on the automotive and medical sector, we have significant advantage over our competitors with regard to expertise and competence - and we make sure that our clients fully profit from our experience. We offer:

  • in-depth knowledge of your industry including current development
  • many years of experience of the intricacies of your market
  • an understanding of the language of your industry
  • a wide and finely-meshed network of individuals and companies throughout Germany



Taking a long hard look at how individual companies work and which qualifications they require is something you are entitled to expect from a high-end personnel consultancy.

We also provide you with a long-term contact consultant, whom you can talk to quickly and individually. Your consultant can tell you about the status of live recruitment processes and advise you on how to proceed with new vacancies. We only take on new tasks if we can deliver to the standards we expect from ourselves. And that’s a promise.

Clear identity


The times when recruitment consultants would find any job for anybody are long gone. The expectations of companies looking for top managers are as specific and unique as the individuals who apply. Finding the best fit is an increasingly demanding task, making personnel consultancy a more and more complex challenge.

Optares is happy to take on this challenge, and we believe we are well prepared to deal with it. We have long-standing and intensive contact to an impressive number of potential candidates, and know their strengths and characteristics, qualifications and experience in detail. Hence we can often suggest suitable and interested applicants from our network at relatively short notice.
