Who are we?

We help people and businesses grow

Attracting skilled talent has become the biggest constraint to organizational growth. Companies who look beyond their borders to attract top talent are not only likely to grow faster, but are also more innovative thanks to globally diverse teams of problem solvers. Founded in 2016, Heron Talent grew from the worldwide need for highly-skilled digital professionals. We specialize in helping brands grow by pushing beyond borders in our search for the best digital talent in the world.

Our values

We deliver value that makes a difference to individuals, teams and organizations. That means doing things better - which is precisely why our CEO Jan founded Heron Talent:

“My own past experiences with recruiters had not been great. I'd always wondered why recruiters couldn't answer basic questions about job opportunities, or why they reached out to me for roles that did not match my experience. When I started Heron Talent, I was committed to creating a recruitment process that would make sense to me if I were the candidate”.

Our DNA:

  • Ambitious. We are driven by quality and the strong desire to do things differently.
  • Curious. We have a genuine interest in people and are constantly questioning the things around us in order to progress.
  • Humility. We value openness, honesty and the need for continual improvement.

Meet our CEO

With over ten years of experience in the digital sector as a Sales and Business Leader, our CEO - Jan Luukkonen - understands the digital landscape.

He also understands people. Having worked as a Sales and Strategy Executive in leading global digital agencies such as Fjord–Accenture and Idean–CapGemini, Jan developed a knack for spotting people with the skills needed to build great teams.

So one day, as Jan puts it, he found a new reason to wake up in the morning! He followed his desire to deliver hands-on, concrete skills to drive business growth - and found his path led him to recruitment.
