About Michael

​Specialising in Medical Devices - Quality | Regulatory Recruitment.

My name is Michael van der Piepen and in my role as Senior Consultant I look after the medical technology market in the south of Baden-Württemberg in the area of permanent employment. On the one hand, I advise companies on personnel strategy and find individual solutions for personnel challenges. On the other hand, I have a selected network of exclusive candidates whom I have met personally and look after individually.

The focus of my work is on the medical technology industry and the specialist area of regulatory affairs and quality management.

The aim of my work is to find the optimal and long-term solution for both sides, my companies and my candidates, through my contacts within the medical technology industry. An important part of my strategy is my exclusive candidate network and my work with vacancies on the hidden job market. As a consulting partner for personnel strategy and career options, my focus is on the highest quality and discretion.

Through my access to the medical technology market, I bring you together with the right person to advance your company and your career.

We would be happy to meet in person for an individual consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.

Working with Michael

​Michael van der Piepen has always supported me in the recruitment of candidates in the QM area with very great commitment, very high reliability and flexibility and has accompanied me through this process. Through his help and support, we were able to attract and successfully recruit very good candidates for my positions. Due to his open, honest and sympathetic manner, it was a pleasure to work with Mr van der Piepen at all times. I will be happy to work with him in the future when recruiting new employees.

Head of Quality Management
Medical Device Company

Our challenge was that in the difficult environment of QM/RA, we were looking for a new senior employee who already had some years of professional experience and who could bring his knowledge and experience to our high-tech start-up. Basically, people working in QM/RA are very hard to find and usually they do not have the pressing intention to change. So finding the right people is very challenging! At first I thought I was dealing with another one of those black sheep in the industry who send bait profiles that of course fit the advertised position perfectly. But unfortunately, this person is then not (any longer) available when there is interest or demand... I was fortunately proved wrong by the Austin Vita employee. The work is sound, the candidate profiles are very well researched and of high quality. The support provided by the recruitment consultant is excellent and very goal-oriented. Nevertheless, the personal aspect is not neglected, so that I felt very well looked after. The success proves us right! We have found a very good new employee who even dared to move from America to Germany with his family for the position. Thank you for that! Due to the very good experience in finding a permanent employee, I also used Austin Vita's expertise when looking for a freelancer (gn). And the very good impression was also confirmed here, we have found a very well-suited freelancer, she will start with us soon, we are excited!
