Petend was established in 2008 as a company specializing in IT recruitment, employee leasing, customized software development and distribution of ready-to-use applications.

As a headhunting and IT recruitment agency, we are working according to the following routine:

  1. We devote the right amount of time to get to know our clients' needs about the position and the person
  2. We search for the ideal candidate
  3. We get to know the potential candidates, evaluating their skills, personality and motivation. Based on these, we create a short list for the employer
  4. We inform the short-listed candidates about the employer's requirements, opportunities and future career options
  5. We introduce potential and motivated candidates for our clients

Our goal is to make both our candidates and clients think that by filling the position in question they made the right step. We take part in managing the complete recruitment process, including selection, and we take over all related administration from our client. Our searches include positions in and outside Hungary, on junior, senior, expert or even C-suite level. Our greatest asset is quickness, our overall IT and HR knowhow, and flexibility.

Our clients have a dominant position in the Hungarian market, like large companies, banks, IT companies and shared service centers, but we also have foreign clients through our Belgian subsidiary, we are presented in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, the Benelux countries and England. Our outsourced colleagues – among others – are working in the institutions of the European Commission, leading financial service providers and telecommunications companies.

Our IT consulting and development team has developed a number of unique solutions, but we also have boxed products in the field of HR and manufacturing.

Besides the above-mentioned success-fee based service, we also deal with employee leasing both for long-term and short-term projects.
