“The Randstad appointment will embed a specialist team within our business, enabling us to take a strategic bird’s eye view across our key markets as well as providing consistent support to our hiring managers on the ground. The aim is for the process to be simpler and more cost effective – at the same time as ensuring we have the best talent deployed in the best possible way.”

This is a massive opportunity for us to deliver both a strategic value for one of Europe’s most exciting companies, as well as real results on the ground.”
