I'm so glad that you found your way to this site. While it would be even more fun to meet you in person (which I hope will happen someday), for now let me introduce myself in just a few words.
My greatest joy is being with people and getting to know them. I turned this passion into a career in HR, and since 2014, I've been fortunate to work with various international clients, mostly great startups, hiring hundreds of people in Europe. As a headhunter, recruiter, HR manager, and people partner, I helped grow many IT teams during a time of huge competition and constant battles for the best talent in the market. My experience doesn't just stop there; I also built and developed new branches in Poland from scratch, including all duties related to office space organization. For a more detailed explanation of my experience, check out my portfolio below.
My experience proves that the greatest successes are achieved by those people whose employment happiness is one of the highest priorities. Having happy employees isn't just a bonus; it's a necessity for every successful workplace. But how do we achieve it? Relationships are fundamental. They form the basis of trust and commitment. With the right approach and a well-skilled team, every goal can be achieved. For more information, I encourage you to check out my blog or just set up a call or meeting with me using this link.
Offstage, I'm passionate about logo-therapy, jogging, mountain hiking, Spanish football, snowboarding, and traveling. I'm also a sailor and a guitarist. In my spare time, I volunteer for my own project: Futbol Kolektyw, where I scout talented young footballers.
I hope we'll have the opportunity to meet in person. I'd love to hear your story.

HR policies & processes creation
briefly about me:
working in people management since 2014
experienced at different levels, from intern to team manager
experienced with start-ups & scale-ups
Role: HR Partner
For: TWILL by Maersk (Software for logistics)
Goal: Managing full-cycle recruiting process
For Twill, a 5-years old scale-up of Maersk, for almost a year I was helping with everything related to recruitment: managing full-cycle recruiting process with focus on high-touch candidate experience, sourcing candidates from a variety of channels, facilitating candidates and conducting interviews and suggesting new HR strategies.
I was also consulting with leaders and managers on hiring needs and priorities and delivering results to Maersk stakeholders. Cooperating with a legal department to prepare and complete documents, providing consultation on labour law to the employees if needed.
Since Twill was joining forces with MAERSK's hr department we decided to part ways.

As a one-man HR department I was responsible for designing and implementing all HR initiatives, policies and practices like: establishing recruitment process, on-boarding, off-boarding, improvement plans, on-calls policy etc. I was coaching and mentoring new teammates and supporting other managers in onboarding.
My goal was to improve employee retention and create valuable work environment by building successful and satisfied IT scrum teams for exiting new SaaS product in data driven company. We reached 38 closed vacancies during 1,5 year (~2/month). Happiness and satisfaction: employee turnover rate in 2020: 3%. A lot of people hired then are still successfully working for FLYR until this day.
While working for FLYR, shortly before the pandemic start, I took over some of responsibilities of General Manager. The Travel industry was in crisis. I was responsible for looking for savings, coordinating the reduction of employment, switching to full remote mode in couple of days for a 40 people Cracow's branch.
