About Fjord

Welcome to Fjord, a Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) business that specialises within the technology space.

We offer a range of  RPO, project, contingent and retained recruitment solutions across the globe. We also work with several affiliates who are experts in their respective fields to offer leadership development and HR consulting services. 

At Fjord, we believe that rather than just finding candidates, recruiters should focus on finding the right individual; this requires a different set of skills; a deeper understanding of how organisations work; a more profound knowledge of people, their values and their motivations; and a higher degree of honesty and openness.

We spend a minimum of one day per month on-site with our clients and will assign a dedicated Fjord Professional. The Fjord Professional will manage your recruitment process from job description creation, direct sourcing, on-site competency interviews, offer management to onboarding and beyond. 

Our core values are Natural, Fun and Caring, and we live and breath these values in every decision or interaction.​

I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Fjord Management.
