focused on CEE Region, Turkey and Spain.



Hello and


TALENT SOURCE is an independent Executive Search firm focused on Central/Eastern Europe, Turkey and Spain, and dedicated to providing an exceptional professional service to our clients. We afford very personal attention to our clients, our candidates, and to each recruitment project. TALENT SOURCE was founded in 1999 with the first office opening in Budapest, Hungary.

Our Budapest office continues to be a regional hub, handling assignments throughout the entire CEE region. We have since added offices in Warsaw, Prague, Moscow, Istanbul and San Sebastian. In addition to our expertise in Marketing, Sales, HR and Finance, we have established a separate division titled Source Legal, to focus on our expanding legal assignments within the CEE region, Turkey and Spain.

Our Competitive Advantage

Our Senior Consultants always take a very personal, "tailor-made" approach to our Clients’ needs. All of TALENT SOURCE staff take pride in delivering a high-quality service on a timely basis - matching or exceeding our Clients’ expectations, and working to set deadlines.


Proven track record in Hungary, and other countries throughout the CEE.


Highly flexible conditions. Very transparent policies, “no tricks!”


Able to work extremely quickly to help clients in very urgent situations – “rapid response”.



We specialise in upper AND middle management positions. We believe that our clients retain us to make the recruitment process as efficient and stress-free for them as possible. We are particularly experienced in FMCG, Pharmaceutical, Advertising & Media, roduction/Manufacturing, and Retail sectors.


We specialise in recruiting senior lawyers and whole legal teams (with substantial business), thus helping our clients to grow their legal practice and to increase their client base. – We’re also trusted by our clients to fill in key in-house legal positions.

Our Focus

Our clients include many of the largest and most successful multinational companies in the world. We also have strong experience with new companies starting in the CEE region and Turkey, often hiring the first employees for the newly established company.

Most of our positions are strong middle management level, but in certain circumstances, our clients have requested our assistance with key entry level positions, as well as the top management level (including Managing Director level, and Managing Name Partner level positions). We are especially experienced with Sales, Marketing, Finance, Legal, and HR positions.

Our commitment

We are strongly committed to matching the best talent with the best employers, with a strong passion for excellent client service. We strive to earn, and keep the trust of our clients with each new assignment. We are also committed to offering our service with very transparent, and reasonable conditions.
