CNA International opens first Russian office
The executive search arm of Pertemps Network Group has integrated with Talented People, a St Petersburg-based boutique recruitment firm. Director Anna Potapova and her team of five experienced consultants bring to CNA a wealth of knowledge of the Russian human resources market.
St Petersburg is Russia’s second largest city with a population of more than one million people. The region is a hotbed for industrial, IT and engineering talent and CNA will be positioned to offer global, cross-border and local talent solutions to clients and candidates from the Russian Federation or those who are entering into this emerging market.
Managing director, Nick Sprang, said, “Russia’s recruitment industry continues to evolve and remains a unique marketplace. Like in many emerging markets, the search for talent is on the rise as more Russian companies compete for skilled workers. With the complete integration of Talented People, we are now in a well-placed position to combine our executive search skills with an organisation that truly understands the Russian market. This is an exciting time for our business as we expand into a country that has potential to become an industrial leader.”
CNA International was founded in 1993 and is the executive search arm of Pertemps Network Group, one of the UK’s largest independently owned recruitment agencies. CNA International now has over 30 offices inside and outside of the UK and in recent years has expanded into Asia.
