The idea for Nordic HR People is based upon a vast network of HR Professionals in The Nordics, and more than 20 years of experience within business-driven HR.

The founder of Nordic HR People is the driving factor in establishing the company and the core idea for entering this niche market is that it takes one to know one!

One focus – HR Professionals

“Throughout my career, I have often been asked by HR professionals looking for a career change, do you know any recruitment or interim agencies which focus solely on HR professionals? And my reply was always unfortunately not until today.”

Christian Sylvester, CEO and Founder

With the foundation of Nordic HR People, we have created a niche marketplace where companies looking to attract HR professionals on a permanent or interim basis and Senior HR Professionals offer their know-how. Nordic HR People is for HR Professionals created and founded by passionate commercial HR People who have the ambition of advising Companies when it comes to adding HR Resources and attracting the best HR Professionals in the Nordics.
