We bring amazing people together to make amazing things happen.


Curicum is an award-winning human resources and management consultancy that helps clients master the global challenges of skills shortages. We work with the world’s most ambitious and influential companies, whether multi-national corporation or hidden champion. We also set ourselves the goal of shaping and promoting the bilateral relationship between Germany and China in a sustainable manner.

We help companies to hire the perfect candidate, from a curated number of talents that bring your projects to the next level. Curicum builds on a unique and comprehensive pool of bilingual talents, across every sector – from entry-level to executives in their fields.

Relationships, collaboration and discretion.

Strategic, and especially personal, decisions are often complex and have a critical reach. As these decisions affect the performance and reputation of organizations and the careers of individuals, we treat our relationships with customers, candidates and colleagues with great care, offering advice with the courage to be open and always maintaining our sense and understanding of discretion.

We focus on developing and maintaining deep, long-term relationships with clients and candidates, as strong relationships lead to the best ideas, more diverse and sound options, and broad access to the most talented executives. Our mission is to get to know top executives very well: what are their unique skills, what motivates them, how have their careers developed, their professional aspirations and the cultural environment in which they thrive.

We also know that we are better together than alone. We work together in specialized teams to ensure that we consider the right industry, functional and geographic perspectives for your job.
