Compliance Officer, Zurich


It is our aim to build long-term relationships with our clients and candidates and to be

a competent, strategic partner with regard to human resources and career

development in Central Europe. We would like to make use of our networks to offer

strong professionals a stepping-stone for furthering their career development. In

addition we offer a platform for topics such as sustainability and diversity in day-to-

day operations, in our relationships and in our way of doing things, and we transmit

ideas and experience. Progress and continual further development are tremendously

important components and preconditions for companies’ success. In keeping with this

thinking, we too keep developing. Yet, we are convinced of the added value and

sustainability of our conventional business – our highly personalized and individually

tailored personnel placement. No network and no platform is able to build the

conviction that a personal meeting or a direct exchange is able to generate. We jointly

manage our company based on the ideas of our team.
