Prodirekt Language Study and Education Coordinator

Due to our education group’s regional expansion, we are looking for two devoted language study and education coordinators – one located in Belgrade, Serbia, and the other in Skopje, Macedonia

The 2011 was a difficult year, yet we managed to produce some remarkable results. In 2011, our company opened the second representative office in Skopje, Macedonia. In the same year, PRODIREKT became the first company in Southeast Europe to be awarded the accreditation for the language education travel and Work-and-Travel program abroad by the two most important European associations – the British organization English UK and German ICEF.

Since its launch in 2010, the communication network Verbalisti has gained the support of over 120 foreign language teachers in the region, while our social network today has more than 11,000 members. The two communication and foreign language blogs, in Serbian and Macedonian, were also promoted in 2011 (with 430 followers), and the Verbalisti YouTube channel crossed the magic mark of 100,000 video views in less than a year.

We believe that education and personal development are the best investment for everyone, especially during the times of uncertainty and economic downturn. We realize that this year might be even harder than 2011, but we also believe that with hard work we can repeat the same success of the last year. If you are a fighter, fast learner and hardworking individual, then, please consider the following job description and position requirements:

Dejan Trpkovic about Management Recruiting in Serbia and Montenegro in an Interview for Daily Politika

Belgrade, Serbia & Montenegro – April 6, 2004 – The oldest and most prestigious daily newspaper in Serbia and Montenegro (SCG), POLITIKA, describes the growing management recruiting industry in the country in an interview with Dejan Trpkovic, the principal of Prodirekt, one of the leading management consulting and executive search firms in SCG.

PRODIREKT Dejan Trpkovic Interview in PolitikaMr. Trpkovic comments that Serbian experts living abroad are not returning in higher numbers to SCG since the gap in their salary expectations and market conditions are still too wide.

“Credit crunch and strained cash flow pose a major problem for fast growing small and medium size companies in attracting professional management,” says Trpković. He adds “Local managers are not interested in equity compensations.”

“It is not good to see that most local companies are still thinking that they are implementing strategic management when they plan three years in advance,” adds Dejan Trpkovic. “Senior managers should be able to predict market trends and be proactive in the positioning of their companies on the market.”

“Although we try to focus on the selection of senior executives, Prodirekt sometimes has to engage in the middle management searches. The market is simply not developed yet to the extent to make the searches for top management an exclusive business option,” explains Trpkovic why major international retained executive search firms are still not present in SCG.
