About us

Talentor is an executive search and recruitment organisation for middle and upper management positions. We are one of the world’s top 40 executive search networks with independent partners around the globe.
How it all began!

20 years Talentor International!

Talentor, established in 2003 in Finland, originated from collaboration between two partners who initially forged connections with executive search firms in the Nordics and Baltics. In 2012, the Austrian company epunkt - the biggest recruitment agency in Austria - acquired the Talentor structure, which comprised 12 partners across various countries. Over the last 10 years, we have expanded and refined our network, introducing new countries and making strategic partner changes. As of 2024, Talentor spans 34 countries, and our ambitious goal is to further grow and reach 50 partners by 2026!

Our mission is clear: to fulfill nearly 95% of all client requests on an international scale through our extensive network of local partners. By strategically expanding our reach and collaborating with partners worldwide, we ensure unparalleled global coverage for seamless and effective service delivery to our clients.

What does it need to manage an international network?

A passionate team that cares!

At Talentor, we pride ourselves on having an in-house team exclusively dedicated to driving growth, integrating new partners, and providing ongoing support to our active members.

Regular partner virtual meetings, two physical meetings a year, newsletters, and a network intranet help share important information, industry insights, and best practices across the network.
  • Technology and Artificial Intelligence: We work to leverage state-of-the-art technology to streamline communications, share resources, and provide updates to all network partners. This includes a centralized information sharing platform, project management tools and collaboration technologies. In addition, we have launched an “AI Masterclass” that aims to promote knowledge sharing and skills development among our members. This initiative equips participants with the essential tools to leverage the latest advances in artificial intelligence in the recruiting industry and ultimately increase their efficiency and effectiveness.
