direct search & non executive search

It is important for me to work with candidates and clients where I feel positive energy, the courage to make difficult decisions and the desire to infuse drive and energy into others, all on the basis of partnership and long-term relationships.

my projects

I have been actively involved in recruitment since 2015. My goal is to fill hard-to-fill positions of narrow specialists and managers. My partners are Czech and international companies from the Czech Republic and Central Europe. 

Since 2020 I have been cooperating with flow-r and I fill projects using the method of direct search.

This service provides high added value in the form of reaching the entire market of potential candidates and identifying even those individuals who have not yet considered a change.

previous experience

technology companies

I started my career focusing on technical candidates for manufacturing and technology companies. Gradually, I was introduced to other segments and began to build a valuable network of contacts. 

direct search

Since 2020, I have been working with flow-r and filling projects using the method of directly approaching offline candidates, called direct search.

This service provides high added value in the form of reaching the entire market of potential candidates and identifying even those individuals who have not yet considered a change.

inspiration for today's work

During my time in recruitment, I have met hundreds and thousands of interesting candidates across different segments. It never ceases to amaze me how skilled and interesting people are in the marketplace and how interesting the professions they pursue are. 

So with each new project, I am challenged to learn about a new profession or set of professionals.

about me

I enjoy connecting career opportunities with the right candidates, coming into contact with interesting and smart people and gaining knowledge from a wide range of fields. Music is an indispensable part of my life and I enjoy constantly pushing myself to learn new things.


I have been cooperating with recruiters flow-r executive search for many years and I thank them for a lot of excellent colleagues and interesting meetings. One of the things I appreciate is their effort to understand not only the position they are looking for, but also the profile of the candidate they are looking for from the perspective of the team they will join. After years of cooperation, it is easier, they know my expectations. I always get candidates to choose from who meet not only professional but also human requirements. Recently, they have also been looking for colleagues abroad for our branches and again successfully.

We worked with flow-r executive search on many projects and we were always very satisfied with the speed, systematic work, quality of the selection process and recommended candidates. Pavel and Zuzka are professionals with excellent knowledge of the market and the psychology of candidates, so their services and advice have great added value in the entire cooperation. I also appreciate their extraordinary flexibility and personal approach.
We have had experience with flow-r executive search for some time now. We primarily cooperate with Pavel Plachý. As a group of several companies, we need a service that the supplier is able to supply for various entities and their needs. Flow-r is doing well. Cooperation with them is always on a very professional level, I really appreciate their pro-active approach and openness. Paul maintains regular contact with us and knows what is happening with us. This makes starting each new order easy. Thanks for all.

Pavel Plachý from flow-r executive search revived my original ideas and expectations of what a headhunter should look like and work with. Obviously I needed time and a little luck to finally meet Pavel to see what pure work "with people" looks like. Really formulate your strengths and weaknesses correctly, but most importantly see the added value in what you enjoy and fulfill. Personally, however, I was thrilled to see and be able to realize the needs of the company several months and years in advance, and accordingly he was able to identify a suitable candidate and skills that will be needed much later. It is unbelievable that even today, someone is able to put all this into a good personal story, regardless of the field in which you operate and whose main center is you - whether as a candidate or you as a client.

In the flow-r executive search, we found a reliable and long-term partner not only for the Czech market.

I would like to thank flow-r executive search and specifically headhunter Adam Červenka for their cooperation, which was very beneficial for us. Together we were able to fill a key position of a senior physician for one of our investment projects. The cooperation was at a very professional level. flow-r executive search will be our first choice for our next search for employees.
Roman Petr CEO RP Clinic, RP invest partner
I would describe my experience with flow-r executive search as a professional approach, fast and constructive negotiations and, of course, successful projects. I see flow-r as a long-term partner and I will be happy to cooperate in the future.
