German firm arrives to head hunt

ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
German firm arrives to head hunt Oxygen Consultancy, a local head-hunter firm recently acquired by Germany’s Allgeier, has said it will help 600 senior employees find jobs next year.

Turkey has vacancies among chief executives in sectors such as finance, fast moving consumption goods, textiles and energy, Allgeier President Carl George Dürschmidt said at a press conference Dec. 5, where the two companies revealed the acquisition.

“We are here to fill this gap,” he said. “The world wants more finance executives from Turkey.”

Allgeier, also active in informatics, employs around 5,000 people across 14 countries.

The company has bought a 90 percent stake in the Turkish firm, but did not disclose at what price.

Oxygen Consultancy is currently active in Central Asia, CIS republics and the Near East, said Chairman Çağrı Alkaya, who co-founded the company with Şükran Tümay. He will remain in his seat.
