Hortor, the global strategic resourcing consultancy with its UK headquarters in Yorkshire, is set to expand its presence in Costa Rica as part of its ambitious plans to become a £100m-turnover business within five years.
Situated in a strategic position alongside Central America’s major economic hubs, Hortor will look to grow its diverse client base out of a larger office located in Costa Rica’s capital and largest city of San José.
Spanish speaking Business Development Manager, Florencia Prato, has recently been appointed to support a team of resourcing experts, who will implement a full 360 recruitment service to identify potential candidates for permanent or temporary placements.
With the support of a global network of industry specialists, Hortor Costa Rica focuses on specific IT fields that include Network Solutions; Cyber Security and Infrastructure; AI and Machine Learning; Software Development and Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
Business Development Manager, Florencia Prato, comments: “We have identified Costa Rica as a country and marketplace with huge potential. With an educated workforce and growing economy, we believe scaling up Hortor’s consultative approach will deliver greater results for companies in this relatively untapped marketplace.
“As a native Spanish speaker myself, I will be able to forge a strong relationship with our local team of experts and quickly develop the market insight that will determine how best we can deliver our services to our growing client base.”
Joint CEO of Hortor, Andy Nicholson, comments: “In order to achieve our ambitious targets, we had to look at forming a physical presence in developing marketplaces, as well as established areas, across the globe.
“Expanding our presence in Costa Rica forms part of our long-term strategy due to the growth potential we are expecting to see from the San José office.
“Setting the foundations, our Spanish speaking team will have full access to a dedicated delivery centre in the UK so they can work with any client and most importantly, meet with any requirements they may have.”
Hortor is a specialist recruitment consultancy working with global businesses that need digital placements around the world. As well as providing access to specialists in RPA and AI, it also delivers managed services and an Employment Consultant Model (ECM) for those that require long and short-term, temporary and project-based resource.
