Spencer Ogden sets sights on Asia with Hong Kong expansion
Spencer Ogdenhas expanded its business in Hong Kong. Just eight months after the global recruitment agency launched its first Hong Kong office the company has moved operations to a larger site with capacity for 50 consultants.
Last week the company was placed fifth in the Sunday Times International Track 200, a ranking of companies based on their international sales growth.
Spencer Ogden CEO, David Spencer-Percival comments: "The rapid growth of the Hong Kong office is indicative of the important role we now play for many of the world’s largest energy companies, many of which have operations in Asia. The experience we brought to the region last year has already helped us place hundreds of skilled individuals in projects across Asia and we are looking forward to building on this successful track record with our expanding team.
The new space, created by Spencer Ogden’s Design Director, Bonita Bryg, follows the typically bold Spencer Ogden branding with features such as Astroturf carpets and brightly decorated meeting rooms featuring a mixture of Eastern and Western Art; Pop Art versions of Chairman Mao mixed with Chanel No.5 art pieces.
Bryg, explains the philosophy behind the design, “Our vision for the offices was to create a space that our employees would feel energised by and motivated to work in. We wanted to depart from the traditional office concept of cubicles and grey, dark shades as we want our staff to have fun while they work.”
Spencer-Percival comments: “Asia plays a key role in our international growth strategy. Hong Kong and neighbouring China are influential in the oil and gas, mining, nuclear and renewable sectors; they are ideally placed to help us expand our reach into other parts of the continent.
This new office is one of many recently launched by Spencer Ogden. With capacity for over 400 employees, Spencer Ogden now has offices in London, Houston, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Dubai, Cape Town, Calgary, Singapore and Hong Kong.
