Global strategic resourcing consultancy Hortor has announced plans to launch a new office in Slovakia to support the company’s ambitious five year plan to become a £100 million turnover business. Located in the centre of Bratislava, the office will be led by experienced business development managers, Vilius Martinkus and Daniela Kroulíková. Specialists in IT and business change recruitment, they both speak fluent Slovak.
Supported by a network spanning across Central and Eastern Europe and coupled with a UK-based Delivery Centre, the Hortor Slovakia team of experts will focus on identifying potential candidates for temporary and permanent positions. Among their specialist areas of focus will be AI and Machine Learning; Cyber Security and Infrastructure; Software Development; Network Solutions and Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
With a UK presence in Leeds and London, Hortor aims to become a market leading recruiter in the digital, IT and tech sector, while also providing bespoke managed services to a worldwide client base. Having invested more than £500,000 in the last 18-months, the company expects to appoint a further 20 recruits throughout 2020.
Business development manager, Vilius Martinkus, comments: “Although this is Hortor’s first foray into Slovakian marketplace, Daniela and I plan to employ the same quality, speed and experience Hortor’s original UK operation has successfully delivered.
“We will lead a team that can combine a commercial understanding and cultural awareness to help develop bespoke solutions that meet with the needs of the Slovak businesses that engage us. No matter how complex the brief, we will have an approach that will deliver results,” Martinkus added.“We look forward to hit the ground running and meeting potential new clients and candidates.”
Joint CEO of Hortor, Andy Roe, commented: “We have very ambitious goals at Hortor and a five-year strategy that we are all working towards. We are strategically laying out the blueprint to ensure we have a foothold in key markets across the globe.
“Along with a top of the class dedicated delivery centre in the UK, we already have an established support network in Europe and across the Atlantic. Our continued growth indicates that using a consultative and bespoke approach to go beyond the usual requirements of a recruitment agency resonates with clients on a global scale.”
