Thor Companies’ winning formula comes from combining British resilience and proactivity with a deep cultural understanding of the business cultures in Norway, Sweden and Denmark. By working hard to understand both our candidate and client needs (in different Scandinavian industries and locations) Thor’s consultants ensure that every process is correctly tailored to the individual. The result means a well-managed and efficient recruitment experience for all parties



Our History

We believe that people are central to any business success and nowhere is this more apparent than internally here at Thor.  Thor Companies continues to experience sustainable growth across all areas of Scandinavia and the UK within; Infrastructure, Finance and Technology, Energi and Bio. Having honed our headhunting skills in niche areas where the best talent is hard to find, the Thor group can now boast a strong portfolio working with some of the global, industry-leading clients as well as the most experienced candidates across the region. Thor Companies started with just a small office in London but now has a strong mix of Norwegian, Danish and Swedish nationalities in its London Headquarters, who complement our local, in-country teams.

We only focus in niche areas where demand is high and supply is scarce. Keeping at the forefront of these vertical markets is imperative in order to add the most value to our clients and candidates. Similarly, we only want to work with exciting, innovative, growth companies and in doing so only select a number of companies within each industry. Over time this allows us to really understand the nuances of our clients and in turn leads to trusted partnerships.

We actively strive to understand local cultures, local laws, and the specific disciplines in which we specialise. This means that we can therefore be of astute mind to advise and give consultation in these areas.

We very rarely advertise our roles because quite simply, the best candidates tend not to apply via online routes. Instead we headhunt specific individuals and really get to know them. We track their careers and inform them of possibilities that meet their motivations as and when they become available. This increases our control over our network and database, ensuring it remains extremely strong and is not diluted by irrelevant profiles and applications.


London HQ

Overlooking the houses of parliament and in the heart of London, Thor Companies HQ is where we train and develop our people. By embracing the London working culture, our consultants are given the best opportunity to deliver industry leading results across Scandinavia, as well as enjoying everything that arguably one of the best cities of the world has to offer!


ScandinaviaN HQ

Our main office in Scandinavia is based minutes from Stureplan in Stockholm, allowing us to be close to a lot of the decision makers across many of our sectors. Our team here are ideally placed to meet with both Candidates and Clients which is the cornerstone of Thor’s relationship building philosophy. They also work closely with our local offices in Norway, Denmark and the UK

Thor have partnered with us across multiple requisitions in the areas in which they specialise. For one position, we signed a separate exclusivity agreement, where we demonstrated financial commitment upfront. I would highly recommend this as they filled the position in 9 days, with an excellent candidate who they still check in on
