Maple Resourcing sees positive growth in international markets
The firm, which specialises in recruitment for the Construction, Rail & Infrastructure, Engineering and Finance & Accounting sectors, states that it has seen considerable growth from its international clients for highly skilled senior to executive level candidates. This backs up findings from APSCo Deloitte UK Recruitment Index 2013 that found 63% of respondents generated a fee income from international markets and that international net fee income rose to £1.4 million per average overseas office from £0.3 million.
Karl Andre, International Recruitment Manager said: ”This is a very exciting time for us at the moment as we have numerous opportunities available across our International markets. The recession hit many areas across Continental Europe really hard and these locations are still struggling to recover but areas such as the Commonwealth of Independent States, North Africa, and Asia have experienced an unprecedented boom in construction and infrastructure. The Middle East as a whole is performing well and Russia, India and China have remained strong markets for us throughout the recession and are showing no sign of slowing down.
We are seeing emerging markets in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Vietnam. This is partly being powered by the advent of budget airlines operating short haul flights from China. This now makes it affordable for the average Chinese national to holiday abroad. Which in turn is increasing demand for improved road, rail and air infrastructure and affordable hotels.
Maple Resourcing are very optimistic for the future as it expects to see a steady growth in the next couple of years fuelled by demand for talent from its International and UK client base.
