Since opening new offices in downtown Niš, Better Collective has set a target of 150 employees in Serbia by the end of 2020.
The company opened the door to a new 2000 m2 office in the city centre in the presence of Denmark’s Ambassador, H.E. Mr. Anders Christian Hougård and Niš Darko Bulatovic’s Mayor, as well as other associates and colleagues.
“The city of Niš is an ideal destination for new investments, which is why Danish companies are growing their businesses here. The city has great potential to be harnessed,” said Hougård.
Better Collective, which has been working in Niš for three years, currently has over 100 workers in the city and the director of the office Jacob Folmand, said more job openings would become available.
He confirmed: “The plan is to have 150 employees by the end of 2020. Given that, at this point we have 105, it seems to me that number will be even higher. We are thrilled with the talent found in Niš and Serbia, and we want to continue to grow our business in this city.”
Better Collective CEO Jesper Søgaard pointed out that the first office outside Copenhagen opened right in Niš. “It is a fantastic city and has a great business climate,” he said. “We are very happy to have started our own international expansion right from here.
“The original plan was that in 18 months we would hire 12 people, but we realised it was unrealistic, given how talented people in Serbia are, and decided to expand our business here.”
