Antal are now leaders in some of the fastest growing markets around the world such as China, Eastern Europe and India where the company already has 23 offices.

Having joined Antal when we had four offices and to now see us hit the hundred mark is a fantastic testament not only to the transportable and award winning business model but also to the many hundreds of talented professionals we have in our business. This global footprint really offers our clients, candidates and colleagues an unrivalled platform for sharing information, knowledge, experience and assignments."

"The calibre and experience of the people who service our clients and candidates across the globe is astounding,” says Read.” Their in-depth knowledge combined with our extensive international reach is rarely available to clients and candidates elsewhere. I can see the day not too far off when we have a global network in excess of 200 fully operational units. There are so many places we can go and a lot more market share to gain."

"With the addition of Parkside we are now a multi-brand, multi sector and multi-national specialist recruiter of choice for our clients. I am delighted to reach this milestone and even more delighted that our new colleagues have, in less than a week, already engaged with our network across the world to share assignments and place talent for their clients."
