A-Our Mission

About Us

Our Mission

Maria Hvorostovsky founded HVO Search in 2012 with a mission to make hiring the best people simple.

The Problem

Finding and landing niche talent can be frustrating, overwhelming and unpredictable. There are many dead ends, unmotivated candidates, unreliable service providers, yet HR and Line Managers still need to get the job done.

The Solution

We use our own in-house methodology based on applied Behavioural Science to streamline the executive search process and deliver only excellent candidates who believe in the mission of the company we represent.

We research and actively hunt down the right candidate rather than taking a "first past the post" approach. Our due diligence means candidates are proven to reach peak productivity faster, make a greater impact and stay longer in the role.

We work internationally and understand the nuances of different local hiring environments and challenges they face, particularly when hiring someone from another country.

Not Just a Career

We are passionate about personal as well as professional growth. It’s not just our careers that define us. We organise networking events that blend all areas of work and life together.

Having said that, we still work hard to present the most incredible opportunities to those ready for their next professional challenge.

Behavioural Science

Finding the Person You Need 

At HVO Search we put the science in Search. Our training in psychology and focus on best practice leads us to continuously strive for new and progressive ways of enhancing our offering.

We believe that finding someone with the right skills and experience is just the first step in determining whether a candidate is the right fit for your organisation.

For that reason, we use Behavioural Science techniques to determine whether a candidate’s success can actually be replicated.


Behavioural Science uses applied neuroscience and psychology to predict how people are likely to react or behave in a specific work environment.

This provides a more accurate indication of future job performance and a more evidence-based foundation for decision-making.
