The Economy

Turkey is Europe's fastest growing economy and has by far the youngest population.  The median age is 28 (as against nearly 40 in western Europe) and 300,000 university graduates enter the job market each year. Foreign investment has sky rocketed and many multinationals have moved their regional headquarters here. At the same time, an increasing number of local companies have been flexing their muscle in foreign markets. All of this makes for a very dynamic, exciting and challenging employment market.

Our Organisation

Odgers Berndtson is a leading Executive Search firm in Turkey and the region. Working in close cooperation with our strategic partner Profil International, we have a team of over 30 consultants, a successful track record of more than 20 years in Turkey delivering tailored solutions to blue-chip clients in diverse industries combining international best practice standards with strong local market intelligence.

Our Services

We complement our search practice with a strong advertised selection, direct access to over 350,000 professionals, strategic assessment of current/potential human resources and tailored coaching and development programmes, board services and interim management capabilities. Recognizing that our clients expect to earn a high return on their investment in leadership capital, our approach is business-driven and entrepreneurial.  We will always adapt our working methods to provide maximum practical value to our clients in solving strategic and/or operational issues in developing their people and organisations to result in a sustainable competitive advantage.
