Europe

Understanding Challenges and Delivering Results

With offices in Oxford, London and Amsterdam, our Europe team comes with the ambition, motivation and willingness to continue growing and evolving our understanding of the sector’s needs. Our team’s sectoral experience and world-wide outreach enables us to promote roles and conduct closely-targeted recruitment searches for senior and complex positions on a global scale.

With the complex challenges and shifting political landscape that is affecting Europe, such as Brexit, the refugee crisis and the rise of nationalism and extremism both without and within, the sector has an ever-increasing need for innovative, talented, and value-led leadership. We work tirelessly to identify, evaluate, and handpick the most suitable candidates, with robust monitoring systems to ensure transparent promotion of the role alongside ethical and targeted techniques.

Our understanding of the goals and challenges of not-for-profit and for-purpose organisations, combined with our extensive contacts among the region’s key players, gives us an impressive reach across all practice areas, most specifically rural agriculture, food security, agronomy, academia, government, the UN and multi-lateral sectors, social enterprises and corporate businesses.

Like our clients, our mission springs from our values and commitment to social justice, sustainable growth, and economic empowerment. We serve the development sector by ensuring that our clients find the men and women with the unique skill sets required to successfully lead their organisations in delivering their desired social impact.

"I can talk with Yolanda – it doesn’t feel like an interview – it’s sharing my experiences, what I could bring and what HIVOS could bring to me. They (OXHR) were very accommodating in terms of time differences as I was in Africa at the time and gave me very clear timelines. I felt we were on the same page in terms of core values”.
