Who we are

We were established in Czech Republic in 2007


Profesia has gradually expanded from Slovakia into neighbouring Czech and Hungarian markets and is today a member of the Finnish Alma Media group. As a result, we have become a part of the largest network of job portals in Central Europe and the Baltics.

We are professionals with a human touch


We strive to be a reliable partner for companies seeking employees and for candidates seeking to land a job. We approach each client individually and seek answers to every question.

Continuous improvement of services


We keep pace with the latest technological advances and the needs of our customers. Every day we strive to improve on our existing and develop new products. We also organise successful events and support charities in addition to our broad range of online services.
