Our consultants

With over 50 outplacement and career consultants, we offer you a wide range of industry experience, specializations and methodological expertise. The individual experience of our outplacement consultants ranges from former division managers, directors and managing directors of well-known companies to qualified psychologists and certified coaches. Depending on the problem and the desired field of consulting, we will suggest the right consultant for you. You can find a selection of consultants in individual outplacement here.

Our mission

We help people to recognize and develop their potential and to realize their next career step.

People whose daily challenges are in line with their abilities, values and potentials are more satisfied and successful. They perform better - for themselves and for their company.

We accompany employees, managers and companies in change and development processes from the first analysis to the concrete new organization or task.

Honesty and transparency

Our dealings with each other and with our clients are open and direct. We offer individual consulting as well as market and methodological expertise always paired with clear recommendations for action. We provide our clients with comprehensive access to the job market and to new employers. We are honest in communicating our clients' opportunities and prospects for success.



We observe the job market and constantly develop our consulting approach. To this end, we regularly conduct relevant market research and use our quality assurance system for continuous improvement in order to provide our clients and customers with the best possible individual advice at all times.


Modesty and efficiency

We are aware that the majority of our clients and customers are going through a difficult economic period, which is why we strive to minimize sales and administrative expenses in order to be able to offer our consulting services at reasonable prices. Our career counseling and outplacement services should also be accessible to private clients.



We consistently use all means and ways to help our clients succeed. We make full use of government subsidies for outplacement services or transfer companies. We adapt our services to the needs of our clients in order to help as many people as possible to find new career perspectives.


For 19 years

Our foundation in 2002 was initially driven by the idea of providing optimal support to people who had lost their jobs within the framework of outplacement consulting. We wanted to do more than just prepare our clients for entering the job market through coaching and consulting services. From the beginning, in addition to the still important counselling, the concrete search for vacant positions for the clients was a central concern.

Success came quickly and in 2003 further locations were added in Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart and Munich. In 2004, with the Harz III reforms, the newly created transfer companies were included in the range of services. Here, too, the focus of our work for our clients was on rapid placement from the very beginning.

In 2005, our range of services in the area of separation management was expanded to include all aspects of workforce transformation in addition to outplacement and transfer companies.

In 2006 , we recognized that our clients needed more support in implementing activities on the job market and were the first to introduce a service we called "Jobsearch" at the time, which involves researching and targeting business decision-makers. In the meantime, this has become an independent service in the field of career reorientation as "Inverse Headhunting" and has found numerous imitators.

From 2010, additional locations were created and the staff and consultant base was consistently expanded.

In 2016 , we successfully implemented the development of volunteer programs in the area of separation management for the first time and integrated it into the range of consulting services.

Today, KARENT is one of the three leading specialists in the field of outplacement, career consulting and transfer companies and still has a clear unique selling point with its focus on the successful implementation of a clear candidate positioning and search strategy.
