Astbury Marsden announces expansion plans in London and Singapore 

Top recruiter plans to double headcount

New investment generating growth in energy recruitment practice

Astbury Marsden, the leading City recruitment firm, has announced expansion plans for its operations both in London and in Asia, saying that it plans to double the company’s headcount by the end of 2013.

Astbury Marsden says that substantial new investment from the Havisham Group, the privately owned investment group, has allowed the company to scale up its growth plans.

In London, the company plans to increase its headcount extensively across its established markets, which include financial services and management consultancy recruitment, in addition to growing its energy recruitment practice significantly.

Mark Cameron, Chief Operating Officer of Astbury Marsden, comments: “The second half of 2013 is going to be an exciting period for Astbury Marsden. This growth strategy has been in place for some time, but the new investment we have taken on this year has allowed us to accelerate our expansion plans.”

“With London’s financial services sector benefitting from a sustained uptick in positive sentiment, we feel the time is right to develop our presence in our core technology and business transformation recruitment markets, with the goal of increasing our market share.”

“This is also a great opportunity for us to grow our energy recruitment practice, an area we believe will be a key driver of revenues in the future. We have been gradually increasing our activity in the energy recruitment market for some time, but this investment means that we can also move these plans forward more quickly.” 

Astbury Marsden also plans to scale up its Singapore office by consolidating all its Asian operations in the city-state, and growing headcount substantially before the end of the year. 

“In Asia, our experience has shown us that scale is important. Our strategy moving forward is to focus on Singapore as a regional hub for Astbury Marsden, and build a much larger-scale presence there.”

“We believe that Singapore’s comparatively diversified economy offers us greater opportunities for growth in sectors beyond our core financial services practices. As a result, we’ll be increasing our investment in Singapore significantly over the next few months.”
