Bus/Financial
German term or phrase: Vermittlung
Job title/position.
I have never heard it used before in this context, nor have my German colleagues.
Anyone come across it before?
Clare Coupland
English translation:procurement
Explanation:
If it's a slightly more high-brow job than a switchboard operator, I suppose it would be work in a procurement department etc.
Good luck!

agent


Explanation:
This probably relates to providing agency services (without exact context it's difficult to tell) for personnel recuruitment. In a general context "Vermittlung" means acting as go-between.
