Harrison Scott Associate has joined forces in the print and packaging sector
with Hamilton James and Bruce, a giant recruitment organisation in Australia.
The partnership is aimed to fill positions in the Australian and New Zealand
marketplace by tapping into Harrison Scott's extensive database of UK
George Thompson, managing director of Harrison Scott, said: "A number of
candidates have shown a strong interest in moving to Australia or New Zealand.
Now with this strategic alliance between the two companies we are able to offer
our high level service to them for positions in the Antipodes."
The decision to become partners came about after Hamilton James and Bruce
realised there was a great demand for print and packaging people from the UK
due to their technical ability and work ethic.
Katrina Spence of Hamilton said: "There was once a time when Australian
companies, if recruiting from another country, preferred German printing staff,
now the majority want British."
Hamilton said it conducted a two-week tour, visiting short-listed recruitment
companies in the UK covering all the major sectors. The company said it chose
Harrison Scott Associates due to its large operation in the UK, maximising its
chances of a good selection of candidates.
