Thor Companies – Scandinavian Head Hunters

As the name suggests, Thor is a Scandinavian recruitment company, based primarily in London but operating across Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. We have satellite offices in Sweden and Norway and our consultants regularly travel to meet their clients and candidates.

Unlike many British recruitment companies we work the Scandinavian way; the majority of our consultants are Scandinavian which allows us to speak to our candidates in their native language as well as understanding the Employment law and working cultures of our markets.

The Role

  • Headhunting candidates and building a large network of contacts across your industry
  • Strategic Planning & Market Mapping to ensure we are aware of all projects and movements
  • Building your own Business; the sky is the limit at Thor Companies – if you have a business idea that you can present that will benefit the company we will support you whilst you implement it.
  • International Business Trips – visiting our candidates and clients in person
  • Negotiating with Senior Level Executives – we deal with decision makers which means you are talking to leaders within Scandinavia
  • Managing the recruitment process – from engaging initial interest from candidates to managing the interview process and finally negotiating contracts and salaries!
  • Making placements & making money!

The Requirements

  • Hardworking, entrepreneurial attitude
  • Scandinavian language skills are preferred but not required
  • Ambition and Self-Motivation
  • Competitive nature
  • Degree qualified preferred
  • Great interpersonal skills

Working at Thor Companies

Like many recruitment agencies we pride ourselves on our fun and dynamic atmosphere, but unlike others, we have retained our start-up feel. This means that our consultants have a real say about the direction our business takes and are given the responsibility and autonomy to build their own niche markets.

The Location

Based opposite the Houses of Parliament gives us more than just an incredible view.
We are centrally placed and have great transport links with Vauxhall and Lambeth North stations just a short walk away.
Plenty of lunch options locally and a pub at our back door – what more could you need?
