Barbara Krečak

Barbara graduated from the University of Zagreb with degrees in Sociology and PR, followed by an MA in Bookkeeping, and crowned with an Executive  BA from Business school Cotrugli – where she was the youngest person to ever receive this title. Her tale doesn’t only revolve around a successful  academic career, but a lot of hard work, tears and sweat when it comes to gaining work and life experience. Barbara started her first company at the young age of 18. Ever since then, she has been financially independent, expanding her knowledge and improving her business skills. 

Aside from this, she was the youngest columnist in the Croatian magazine “Poduzetnik” (English – “Entrepreneur”). She proceeded to work as a serial entrepreneur and business consultant for start-ups in London.

While working as a consultant, Barbara got an insight into just how difficult and expansive it is to find decent employees for companies in London. At the same time, she was acquainted with many outstanding Croatian experts who were charging much less than the average UK employee would for the same position. Soon, she started connecting Croatian resources with British CEO’s, and the idea to start an outsourcing company that would continue this practice was born.

Due to the economic gap between the UK and Croatia, employees overseas would be paid more than their country’s standards would offer, while executives, specifically – startup owners in the UK, would save up more than 150.000GBP per year when turning to outsourcing outstanding experts in Croatia rather than settling for the ridiculously-high prices of local office space and workforce.

The first employee was hired after the business was formally opened, and then came the first clients that Barbara and Aman persuaded on London business events and via Google ads. Today, Remote Bob’s team consists of over 60 people, the majority of which live in Croatia or the Balkan region, who are available for remote work right now. All of these experts have been carefully selected from a large talent pool. They have conducted interviews and successfully completed a series of test-tasks. The idea has always been to not just find relative and affordable HR, but also individuals who are reliable, trustworthy, hard-working and highly competent in their respected field. The employees are awarded for good performance, and their work can be monitored via a CRM, which assures credibility and transparency, unlike working with self-employed freelancers.

But most important of all – Croatian people, and Balkan people in general, are by nature very talented, easy- going, diligent, and friendly. Introducing Croatian experts to the UK business world will assure pleasure on both sides, as executives in the UK gain the opportunity to work with a new pool of experts, all whilst Croatians gain new experience through first-hand insight into British working practice. 

The goal of Remote Bob is to continue to connect the two sides by also continuing to assure that it stays beneficial.
