Codruta Burda, HR Manager World Vision Romania:
After using several classical recruitment procedures and investing considerable efforts, we got to the point where we couldn’t find a Financial Director for our organization
Consequently, we decided to collaborate with a head hunting company and, in this view, we started a market screening. From the first call, we felt very warmly welcomed and nice treated by people from Advice Human Resources. The best offer came again from them.
This was the first moment of a year-long collaboration and three executive positions were filled with success.
We are very pleased by this collaboration and we decided to work with this company every time we need to hire a top manager. Our communication with them was very easy; they understood our organizational specific from the beginning and they respected all deadlines and our entire request.
Additional, we started a second market survey regarding a training offer for marketing team. A pleasant surprise came also from Advice Human Resources, who presented to us a very good offer in this field. After the training, our team offered us a feedback: the best training received till now.

We retained Advice Human Resources to assist us finding a National Sales Manager for our Industrial Coatings division in Romania. This is a key role for our local operations, as the incumbent is responsible for our specific sales strategy and plans, as well as for defining the terms and conditions of merchandising our industrial products.
Our expectations from the ideal candidate required up-to-date knowledge of the current situation of the construction industry and market in Romania and the region, a strong entrepreneurial mindset and leadership skills. It may be important to emphasize that it was very important for us to be able to attract the best talent available in the market.
Advice Human Resources proved to be capable of rapid reaction to our first inquiry: an experienced consultant was appointed to manage the whole relationship with our firm and immediately started the communication process. The consultant proved to hold significant industry knowledge and accurate understanding of the profile we were discussing and he shared all this information with us, in a consultative approach to our challenge.
Their model of browsing the market and the fact that they used strictly professional, proactive search techniques allowed Advice Human Resources to attract the best talents in this field and to present them to us in a reasonable time-frame. It was a pleasant surprise to see that, with their search, Advice Human Resource managed to mirror the entrepreneurial culture of our firm. I am glad to say that the chosen candidate is still with us and performing as we expected.
It was definitely a transparent process, marked by prompt communication whenever we needed to set the next steps.

Rudolf stands above the class of reputable professionals in hisfield. One of his strong competency is his comprehensive assessment and ability to cope with different situations, organizations and different cultures. I am fortunate to know him.
Bogdan Grama, General Manager, Aaylex
Rudolf Fedorovici este in opinia mea unul din cei mai buni profesioniști in domeniul sau. Prin metodele sale de lucru vine permanent in ajutorul clienților săi oferind, de fiecare data, exact ceea ce este nevoie. El înțelege, cercetează minuțios, este intotdeauna pregătit, oferă îndrumare, consiliere...el oferă soluții clare! Este o persoana deschisă și pregătită care își oferă permanent disponibilitatea. Îl apreciez și îl recomand!
Mateusz Sielecki, Regional Director Starbucks Poland at AmRest
I worked with Rudolf on several recruitment assignments while I was just recently appointed as the Regional Director, Starbucks Romania, Bulgaria & Serbia. Leading an organization through significant changes, and preparing it for a sustainable future requires the right kind of great talent, delivered at the right time. Rudolf and his team understood our vision, our objectives and needs, and provided us with the right people. He took the time to speak with all stakeholders, clarified and aligned our expectations, and planned the searches accordingly.
The process was rather smooth and confortable, from our perspective. Even if sometimes a bit later than innitially estimated, we were recommended competitive candidates, aligned with our Core Values, and most of them personally and professionaly suitable with what we expected. Overall, the outcome was positive and productive.
Gabriel Apostu, Functional Leader for IT and technology at Deutsche Telekom Group
Meeting with Rudolf was a blessing. He is great professional who helped me redefine my future path, and an enjoyable person committed to understanding my needs. By asking the right questions, he helped me redefine myself, and understand my achievements and potential from different angles. He was very supportive in defining my branding and career yet providing sharp observations. I’m very grateful for our coaching sessions, and discussions about how executive recruiters work.
Ioan Cornel Cicu, Country Manager at VGP
A merge la un interviu insemna pentru mine a-mi pune o costumatie, a invata un rol si a incerca sa obtin OSCARUL la concursul de talente. Rudolf mi-a aratat ca poate fi o experienta sincera si constructiva in care, prin profesionalismul si experienta deosebita pe care le are, am aflat lucruri importante despre mine si sa descopar ce mi se potriveste in mod real pe plan profesional . Recomand sincer si convins colaborarile cu Rudolf pentru a gasi oamenii potriviti in organizatii.
Dan Gavriliu, General Manager at Jiffy Packaging SA
It’s been a great pleasure working with Rudolf during the selection of a candidate for the open position in our company. Apart from being an admirable person, Rudolf is a true HR professional recruiter with strong knowledge in this field and high psychological skills. As a professional recruiter he has high interest in finding the real needs of his customer and offering an appropriate solution for the business. I would recommend to any organization that want to bring value for the business.
Adrian Matei, Consultant at Ensight Management Consulting
I have worked with Rudolf during our Career coaching sessions. I appreciated his ability to put matters into perspective and to offer an objective and calculated view. Rudolf is very much involved in the process and truly gives his whole-hearted interest in order to ensure that you progress and that you get one step forward towards your objectives.
From a methodology point of view, I was particularly impressed by the methods employed because Rudolf used a wide range of tools and exercises with the role to both help me set my targets but also to improve the areas where I was lacking. Rudolf’s 20 year experience and his practical examples represent a great advantage for anybody looking to find answers concerning they next career step or just how to become better in the “corporate life”. In this experience you will not find a yes or no answer but rather you will get the tools that will help you make the best decision for yourself.
Mihai Diamandopol, General Manager at AbbVie
I had the opportunity to work with Rudolf in several different projects with the aim to bring in the organization the best fit candidates both for the job but equally important to match with the rest of the organization. I was impressed at Rudolf of his capacity to learn and understand in a very short time exactly what the needs were and by extensive, thorough market research to come with a short list of candidates one of which was every time a perfect fit to our team. In short, excellent job!
Alexander von Reuterhorn, Partner at Fineko Chemicals
Implementation of a strategy including a restructuring process and laying off competent personnel creates a struggle in business. Working together for a short period with Rudolf allowed me to focus on developing future results with the remaining personnel and trust him with the outplacement process of our former team members. I wanted to trust my (former) personnel - being the most important resource in our business - only in hands that are worth that trust. Working together with Rudolf was very professional and resulted we all were able to move on very fast and very successful.
