SOURCE is one of the oldest, independent executive recruitment firms ever established in Central & Eastern Europe after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Its two founding principals are an Australian lawyer and an American HR professional, whose combined experience in executive search & recruitment totals over twenty years. Both principals have strong family roots in the region and, between the two of them, speak six of the main languages in use in Eastern Europe apart from their native English.

The two Principals, the Country Directors and each of our Senior Consultants always take a very personal, "tailor-made" approach to our Clients’ needs. The Principals maintain an active, "hands-on" role in the management and execution of each of our Clients’ recruitment strategy. All of SOURCE staff take pride in delivering a high quality service on a timely basis - matching or exceeding our Clients’ expectations, and working to set deadlines.

Apart from specialising in Direct Search (the traditional “head-hunting” of key staff), we advise our Clients on the optimal recruitment strategies and current market trends specific to each Client’s own industry sector in a given CEE country. We have a long-established, extensive database of candidates from a multitude of industry sectors in which our Clients operate. We usually combine Direct Search with a database search. And, when appropriate, we recommend and employ other recruitment methods which may include on-line/press advertising, “Search & Selection”, Outplacement or “Reverse-Hunt” techniques.

We would be honoured to add your firm or company to the growing list of satisfied SOURCE Clients, subject to there being no conflicts of interest with our existing Clients/on-going recruitment projects. We will never undertake a new project if its execution might prevent us from properly discharging our duties, or fulfilling our obligations, to our established, loyal clientbase. We believe that you would expect nothing less from your recruitment partners, and that you will excuse us, if we might not be able to accept your instructions.
