DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES
This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 (this Post-Effective Amendment) relates to the registration statement on Form S-8 (File No. 333-231557) (the Registration Statement) of HeadHunter Group PLC, a company organized under the laws of Cyprus (the Company). The Registration Statement was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and became effective, on May 17, 2019.
Under the Registration Statement, a total of 3,187,500 ordinary shares, nominal value 0.002 per share, were registered for issuance, representing shares granted or to be granted pursuant to the Amended and Restated 2016 Headhunter Unit Option Plan (the 2016 Plan) and the 2018 HeadHunter Unit Option Plan (the 2018 Plan and, together with the 2016 Plan, the Plans). The Company is filing this Post-Effective Amendment to deregister any unissued shares previously registered under the Registration Statement and issuable under the Plans.
The Company is concurrently filing a registration statement on Form S-8 (the New Registration Statement) for the purpose of correcting an error in the calculation of the fees paid in connection with the Registration Statement (the Fee Correction).

The Company hereby removes from registration, by means of this Post-Effective Amendment, any and all of the securities registered under the Registration Statement which remain unsold as of the date hereof. The registration fees paid by the Company in connection with the filing of the Registration Statement will be carried forward and applied to the registration fee required in connection with the New Registration Statement, which is being filed contemporaneously with this Post-Effective Amendment.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, the Registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this Post-Effective Amendment to the Registration Statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in Moscow, Russia, on July 24, 2019.
