Ihor is passionate about working with data as well as people. Before joining First Point Partners as a Researcher in 2022, he worked across various marketing and business development roles. He predominantly focuses his time on collating extensive research to provide private equity funds with greater insight into hiring trends, diversity challenges and the international candidate landscape.
An avid learner of languages, Ihor speaks fluent Ukrainian, Russian, Polish, English and is conversational in German. He enjoys being able to meet people from diverse backgrounds across Europe. Detail orientated to a fault; he takes great satisfaction translating raw data into tangible metrics for our clients.
When not analysing data on excel, Ihor is found honing his more creative skills across photography, art and theatre.
Ihor is due to graduate with a BSc in Accounting & Finance from Kozminski University. He currently splits his time between Warsaw and London.

''Every time we receive a CV from Lika, we know there is a very high likelihood this candidate will get hired by us. Thank you for what you do and for hiring so many people in our team!''
HR Director, global investment fund.
''Lika really 'gets' us. She presents strong candidates quickly when we are running a process and even keeps us updated on market dynamics when we are not hiring. She openly shares her network and has broached introductions with other members of the investment community to help us become more established in a region we previously had no presence in. She is not your typical recruiter and continues to add value long after formal hiring.''
Partner, investment fund.
''Lika is excellent. A very intuitive individual who has the emotional intelligence of people twice her age in this industry. I trust her completely to find me the best people in the market. Thank you!''
Partner, investment fund.
''We are very happy with the quality of the candidates and would like to thank Lika and Anna for their support and understanding throughout the process. We will come back to them next year when we look to hire again.'
Managing Director, investment fund.
''First Point Partners came highly recommended to us. They ran a smooth, efficient process. In the span of a few weeks I had given out offers to two candidates. Lika had not only found me the exact person I was looking for, but presented another individual opportunistically who could really add value to our team.''
