Our Story

Talent Odyssey was founded in January 2022. We are a brand-new company! Our team has an average of 13 years of professional work on an international scale in human resources, hospitality and travel and tourism. Make no mistake, we don’t lack a bit in terms of experience. We have led, owned and worked in the industries we recruit for.

We also believe in the power of ”network”. And our network is solid and across Europe, it is based on transparency, and it is expanding like wildfire. We speak Greek, Polish, French, German, Portuguese and obviously English. Most importantly, we are all dreamers and fighters. Each one of us left home and started from zero to achieve what their heart craves for. Each one of us has their own Odyssey to talk about. Together, we gather all our life experiences and put them to work for you.

We are here to help you change your life for the better. We will listen carefully to your needs , empathise, and provide you with our feedback. Then, together we will find the opportunities that will propel your career into the future you deserve.

Finally, we want to share with you that our DNA comes from training. We deeply understand how people learn and apply. And we continue to innovate in this. It is why our clients, the employers, want to work with us.
