A home in Hamburg as Earthstaff expands its office network

Headquartered in London and with an office in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Earthstaff’s third international office will focus on the increasing demand for professionals working within the renewables, maritime and power generation industries across mainland Europe.  With the renewables industry employing over 370,000 people in Germany, director Jack Shadwell believes the new office is a great opportunity for Earthstaff:

“Power generation is a hot topic currently and Germany is at the centre of it.  Over 170,000 people are currently employed in the wind sector alone and by 2020 we can expect to see in excess of half a million professionals working in the renewables sector.  Our vision for Earthstaff is to be at the centre of this hiring boom and to replicate our client focussed recruitment services that we adopt in London and Kurdistan, in Hamburg.”

Yani Suparman has been hired to manage the Hamburg operations and with over six years recruitment experience, Jack believes the office will go from strength to strength in a short period of time:

“Yani brings a wealth of experience to the Earthstaff business.  He already has a number of excellent contacts within the industry which complements our existing client and candidate base in Germany that we have built up over the past three years.  Being on the ground in Hamburg presents us with the opportunity of solidifying our existing relationships as well as creating new ones that will assist in Earthstaff’s growth.  We launch the office with a team of three and are looking to quickly grow to double figures over the coming months – it’s an exciting period for Earthstaff and we are looking forward to see what we can achieve in Germany.”

Staffgroup, Earthstaff’s parent company, generates over 30% of its turnover from Germany and sees the country key to its future growth.  Mark Znowski, managing director of Staffgroup comments:

“We have had significant success in Germany now for over a decade and establishing the Earthstaff brand in Hamburg will only add to that. Our Eurostaff business, based in Berlin, has provided specialist IT professionals to over 160 businesses over the past year and is a blueprint for best-in-class recruitment practices.  Earthstaff will be aiming to emulate their tailored recruitment approach and significant candidate and client engagement to build on Staffgroup’s presence and growth in Germany and throughout mainland Europe.”
