Intercessio currently supports recruiters and companies to find hard to find talent, and is a leading voice in the Germany recruitment space. In 2013 she started Intercessio Akademie, a training arm to teach hands-on skills to recruiters and sourcers across Germany, Austria and Switzerland. She counts some of the biggest companies in the region as her clients.
Barbara is Co-Author of the German Social Recruiting Bestseller ‘Praxishandbuch Social Media Recruiting’ and lecturer at the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Science. Away from the office, Barbara enjoys spending time with her dogs, which are huskies. She also does charity work and serves as the president of a European animal rescue group.
