Nick Cox, Managing Director of Continental Europe & Rest of World at Hays, said:
We view Russia as a market with immense long-term potential and our entry into this market is an important step in our continued strategy of establishing operations in growth economies. The opening of our office in Moscow completes our presence in all of the BRIC economies and we anticipate significant demand for our formula of success-based contingency recruitment.
We already have successful businesses across Central and Eastern Europe and we look forward to growing the Russian business and to developing our brand across the country over the longer-term.
