As recruiters, we have made it our task to arrange professional contacts throughout Europe. We are not a staff leasing agency, we deal solely with permanent positions. We act as your partners and advisers in finding suitable employees for our customers and exciting new tasks for our candidates.

In addition to years of experience in recruiting and a large network of contacts, we set ourselves apart by our significant international experience, broad knowledge of languages and individually-tailored advice.

To strive for a long-term cooperation, we attach great importance to arranging the best possible match between all parties.

Davor was born in a country where only two million people in the world speak that language (Slovenia). He realized already at the time that the world is a bit bigger than that - he moved at a young age and settled in Italy, probably because of the tasteful food and drink, although he didn’t eat almost anything as a child.

Davor discovered Germany because of a great opportunity that he got during his studies, and he really liked the environment and the people that he met on his path (and of course he also fell in love with the German food). After having worked in the sand industry in Italy (he didn´t build sand castles), he decided to come back to the country where he “achieved” one of his biggest challenges and decided to start a new career in international recruiting.

Davor speaks fluent Italian, Serbo-Croatian, German and English.
